CASE Construction Equipment, Racine, Wisconsin, has introduced the B Series—five compact track loaders (CTLs) and eight skid steers spanning radial and vertical lift patterns, as well as numerous horsepower and size classes.
New B Series loaders feature a redesigned interface, including new left- and right-hand posts with simple ignition, push-button operation, easy throttle control and intuitive switches for all core machine functions. Contractors may choose between standard mechanical, mechanical hand-and-foot, and electro-hydraulic controls when specifying a machine, the company says.
An eight-inch LCD multi-function display comes with all electro-hydraulic models and can be added to mechanical configurations for use with the backup camera and operational displays. The LCD multi-function display serves as the command center for the machine. It includes a backup camera visible in a split screen display with machine data. The camera is operational in both forward and reverse and enhances the B Series’ visibility.
CASE CTLs and skid steers feature 360-degree visibility, enhanced by the backup camera, as well as a cab-wide rearview mirror that comes standard on all machines. According to CASE, large side windows and a large curved rear window allow for great sightlines to the sides and the rear of the machine. Rear visibility is further aided by low-profile rear hoods and a low-profile H-Link on vertical-lift.
A low entry threshold built into each machine allows for easy entry and exit from the cab. Joysticks on electro-hydraulic models have been designed with a narrower grip, closer switch layout and a smaller head size for easier operation. The electro-hydraulic pods on each joystick have also been made smaller to give the operator more legroom inside the machine.
Mechanically controlled models of the SR210B and larger models feature servo-assisted joysticks for easier operation and less operator fatigue, CASE says.
