CASE Launches New Ways for Utility and Construction Crews to Work in Tight Jobsites and Combat Labor Shortages

CASE Construction Equipment has launched a sprawling lineup of new and enhanced machines that will help utility teams and other contractors work more productively and profitably in the face of ever-evolving jobsite challenges. This next generation of CASE machines was on full display at the Utility Expo.

Highlighted in the booth was CASE’s re-entry of the wheeled excavator market in North America, its new Construction King backhoe models (center pivot and side shift), enhanced dozers with electrohydraulic (EH) blade control, and a sneak peek of one of its newest electric vehicles (EV), a 2.5 metric ton mini excavator.

New E Series Wheeled Excavators – Rolling into the CASE Dealer Network in Q4 2023
This fall, CASE re-enters the wheeled excavator market to help crews who need more maneuverable machines for today's constricted urban jobsites. With the ability to travel up to 25 mph, the new E Series wheeled excavators give contractors the ability to self-deploy from jobsite to jobsite, while minimizing the time and expense involved with transporting by trailer.

Offering the same powerful hydraulic performance and massive attachment flexibility as their steel-track counterparts, these fully featured rubber-tired excavators also offer significantly lower total cost of ownership than machines with a steel track and undercarriage, allowing utilities contractors to improve their bottom line.

Construction King Backhoe Loaders – Twice the Work with One Operator
Another booth highlight for Utility Expo attendees was the new CASE Construction King backhoe models – the original two-in-one tool-carrying machines.

Particularly useful for utility crews is the side-shift backhoe, which lets operators shift the boom left or right to give them the visibility they need to work safely and efficiently – a critical improvement when digging around active gas lines or an electrical box. The expanded CASE backhoe offering is also compatible with numerous attachments, giving crews a big toolkit for improving productivity, speed and accuracy on highly varied jobs.

Operator-first Improvements Take Dozers to Next Level of Performance and Uptime
CASE also showcased its latest round of dozer enhancement to the CASE M Series, bringing contractors more precision, reliability, and control than ever before.

New electro-hydraulic controls allow the operator – of any skill level – to set steering and shuttle settings to smooth, moderate or aggressive to better dial that machine to their preference, which simultaneously reduce operator fatigue and increase productivity. CASE Universal Machine Control is also available with these machines, which allows them to be outfitted with machine control solutions from any of the three major suppliers of precision construction technology. Each dozer is also available with factory-fit solutions from Leica Geosystems (who will be on-site at the booth) that simplify the ordering and setup process.

CASE Electric Models Meet the Changing Needs of Contractors
Because government and municipalities are early adopters of electrification, CASE also had a sneak peek of one of its latest electric models – the CX25EV all-electric mini excavator launching in 2024. With the same power and performance as diesel-powered machines, new CASE EV equipment is easy to charge, transport and service, while providing the additional value of zero on-site emissions, minimal noise and reduced maintenance costs.
