Imagine a fully electric backhoe loader that produces absolutely zero emissions, minimizes operating costs, slashes maintenance demands, and plays perfectly with local/project-based incentives. OK, now stop imagining, because it’s a pleasant reality thanks to CASE Construction Equipment’s “Project Zeus”—also known as the all-new 580 EV.
The 580 EV (Electric Vehicle) offers owners a 480-volt, 90-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack that easily supports the majority of typical eight-hour workdays while almost miraculously still offering an equivalent level of performance to other diesel-powered backhoes. The battery pack is powered by any 220-volt/three-phase connection, making it simple to charge, and it separately juices up the hydraulic motors and drivetrain for sensational breakout forces that rival CASE Construction Equipment’s other backhoe loaders.
Oh, and let’s not forget the other obvious benefits of electric power: reduced equipment noise and the sincere approval of city governments, all of whom benefit from eliminated emissions.
SiteWatch… but even better? Well, that’s exactly what CASE Construction Equipment has achieved with the latest update to their SiteWatch telematics platform. It takes all the dependability of the former system and supercharges it for 2020 with an all-new dashboard boasting enhanced navigation and fresh overview sections for superior at-a-glance usability.
Let’s dig in a bit deeper. This new dashboard provides an easy-to-read horizontal menu festooned with five widgets that put critical details right at the operator’s fingertips, including items such as fuel consumption, equipment search and summary, and maintenance and equipment utilization. Top-line menu buttons streamline fleet overviews, too.
There’s too much to cover in one article, but here’s a taste of what all is provided:
- Simplified fleet management
- Workload and productivity analyzation
- Real-time alerts/alarms for servicing and geo-fence monitoring
- Equipment security and location aid
- Improved billing and estimating
CASE SiteWatch comes standard on all CASE Construction Equipment backhoes; standard on all heavy equipment with ProCare; and available as an option throughout the entire equipment line.
Recognition is never in short supply for CASE Construction Equipment’s Skid Steers and Compact Track Loaders, but now the industry’s only award program predicated specifically on end-user input has honored their machines.
Equipment Today has included CASE Construction Equipment’s Skid Steers and Compact Track Loaders in their coveted “Top 50 New Products of 2020” list. It’s hardly surprising given the company’s dedication to making great products even better—the CASE B Series’ five CTLs and eight skid steers have all been reimagined for 2020 with industry-leading 360-degree visibility and some of the widest cabs seen anywhere.
CASE’s B Series Compact Track Loaders up the ante even further, offering an entirely refreshed operator interface with redesigned left- and right-hand posts boasting intuitive switches, push-button operation, and simple ignition and throttle control. Additionally, the eight-inch LCD multi-function display sports the industry’s one-and-only back-up camera with both machine data and a split-screen array.
