Making a CASE for evolution

CASE Construction Equipment has lifted the veil on the new G-Series Evolution Wheel Loader range.  And these machines were the subject of a massive Diggers and Dozers Live Show, which you can see above.

The seven model range features an all-new payload system thatis integrated directly into the wheel loader’s primary display and provides bucket-weight, pass counts, accumulated/running weight, job tracking data and more, for high-volume loading and production environments.

Operators benefit from the ability to precisely load each truck and reduce under/overload situations by accurately weighing each bucket, whilst cumulatively tracking the total weight of material loaded into each truck. The improved payload system helps operators track total loads including the total volume of material moved over a specific time, load history by customer, ticket or material, as well as providing a comprehensive ticket history.  

CASE SiteConnect and SiteWatch also come as standard for three years on each CASE G-Series Evolution wheel loader.

Featuring a new dashboard, SiteWatch is designed for intuitive navigation that clearly identifies issues without requiring operators and fleet managers to be physically present.

The new G-Series Evolution includes a new integrated payload scale that lets operators read and log every single bucket load. Once the truck target load is set, the system can show if the last bucket exceeds the target load and, in this case, the “tip-off” mode can be activated, helping the operator to partially release the material in the bucket until the target load is achieved.

An all-new touchscreen display provides tablet-like performance for accessing all critical machine settings and operational data, allowing operators to anticipate and react more quickly to real-time changes in conditions. This includes all-new electro-hydraulic controls that enable the operator to independently set lift (boom) and tilt (bucket) responsiveness to match operator preference and loading situations. Each function can be independently set with a choice of three responsiveness modes: smooth, moderate and aggressive.

CASE has simplified the previous engine power management operating mode offering with two new ones: Smart and Max. Max mode is chosen when the operator wants to work with maximum engine performance in tough conditions, while the new Smart Mode delivers high performance and an enhanced operating experience through improved communication between the engine and transmission on jobsites that are less challenging.

Operators can take advantage of the new parallel lift functionality across all boom configurations that assists in material retention and smooth loading by automatically maintaining the angle and position of the bucket or forks.

To further simplify usability, CASE has introduced three new colour-coded configurable buttons on the right armrest enabling the operator to react quickly, with minimal movement, whilst being able to interact with pre-programmed machine settings. These settings are determined by the operator and can include critical functions/displays such as the all-new payload screen, rear-view camera, differential lock or declutch, and strobe activation.

Thanks to extended service intervals from 500 to 1000+ hours the total cost of maintenance has been reduced by up to 20 percent when compared to the current wheel loader range.

In addition, CASE has developed CASE Care, a standard planned maintenance programme with genuine parts and lubricants available in Germany and the UK, with Europe-wide availability planned. The programme is underpinned by the support, logistics and technical expertise of the wide-reaching CASE dealer network.

CASE Care can be selected as part of a bundle of CASE Service Solutions, alongside the CASE Protect Warranty extension, with a range of options for total peace of mind.

Tyre health and performance has a significant impact on overall machine performance, including fuel efficiency. The all-new Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) features individual sensors that mount to the valve stem of each tyre along with a receiver module that communicates the pressure for each tyre onto the display and alerts the operator when the tyre pressure is outside of a set range.
