Construction and earthmoving equipment distributor CSE Equipment says its new Case SR and SV series skid-steer loader range includes nine new skid steers, with advanced features for improved performance, enhanced produc- tivity and increased operator comfort.
“Robust Case SR series and SV series skid-steer loaders have been designed for improved driving force and reliable handling in all conditions, including demanding materials handling applications on mines,” says CSE Equipment national manager Alex Ackron.
“Turbocharged, four-cylinder, Tier 3-certified diesel engines, which provide the power and torque required to efficiently cope in the toughest environments, also ensure operating efficiency and fuel economy. The SR radial lift units are engineered for digging, prying and pushing, while the vertical lift SV models are designed for efficiently handling demanding lift-and-carry tasks.”
The models in the SR and SV series include the SR130 unit, with a 590 kg operating capacity, and the SV300 machine, with a 1 360 kg operating capacity. Peak torque ranges from 130.5 Nm at 1 750 rpm to 340 Nm at 1 400 rpm. The tipping load capacity extends from 1 179 kg to 2 720 kg and the breakout force of the bucket cylinder ranges between 18.5 kN and 38.2 kN.
This series offers 25% more interior width, with improved visibility, comfort and control. The cab has been sealed to reduce noise levels and dust ingress. There is an ultranarrow wire sidescreen design, with more glass surface area to provide 360° visibility for the operator. Side lighting enables 24-hour operation.
Users can choose either standard mechanical drives or optional electrohydraulic (EH) switchable controls. The EH option facilitates the match of control patterns to operator preference.
Meanwhile, the new series offers a new Power Stance chassis with a wheelbase up to 21% longer and 30/70 front/rear weight distribution designed to safely increase the capacity to lift and haul more material. These machines also offer increased travelling speeds and improved stability, regardless of working conditions.
Another advantage of this series is a larger fuel tank, ranging from a 60.5 ℓ to 96.5 ℓ capacity, which enables all-day operation without the need to stop for refuelling.
The new design of this series allows easy, ground line access for daily maintenance checks and a standard quick coupler enables the operator to switch attachments without having to leave the cab.
