Case Construction Equipment introduced the TV620B compact track loader (CTL).

The 114-hp, 6,200-pound rated operating capacity CTL delivers best-in-class breakout forces, as well as more standardized features than previously available on any Case CTL. This includes standard adjustable electro-hydraulic controls, high-flow hydraulics, auto ride control, one-way self-leveling, a hydraulic coupler, an auto-reversing fan, LED lights and a one-year subscription to Case SiteWatch telematics. It also comes with a new 1.25-cubic-yard heavy-duty bucket designed specifically for the TV620B.

The new Case TV620B also features the new Case SiteConnect Module, remote connectivity and software updates through the SiteManager App (iOS and Android), as well as connectivity to the Case Uptime Center for collaborative fleet management between Case, a local Case dealer and the equipment owner.

“The industry has never seen a CTL like this, and we’re focused on delivering extreme power and performance matched with intuitive technologies that simplify owning and operating,” said George MacIntyre, product manager, Case Construction Equipment. “The TV620B is built to simplify heavy work such as cold planing, mulching, heavy material handling and loading high-sided trucks. There’s no loader on the market today with this level of standard features and its combination of power, stability and performance — it’s here to take on the big work.”

The TV620B also features the advances introduced with the launch of the Case B Series CTLs, including a completely redesigned operator interface, industry leading 360-degree visibility and an 8-inch LCD multifunction display that serves as the command center for the machine. It also includes the industry’s only rearview camera visible in a split screen display with machine data.

The Case TV620B features a rated operating capacity of 6,200 pounds, a breakout force of 12,084 pounds for a bucket; and 12,907 pounds for a lift and a track length on the ground of 74 inches. Ground performance and machine strength is further supported by a new heavy-duty undercarriage and heavy-duty 17.7-inch rubber tracks that allow for minimal ground disturbance (6.1 psi) and enhanced performance on improved surfaces.

The TV620B offers a selection of buckets, including a heavy-duty 84-inch 1.25 cubic-yard bucket with SmartFit teeth, and it is specifically designed for use with other heavy-duty attachments such as mulching heads, cold planers and the new grading blade. Case will be releasing additional heavy-duty attachments designed specifically for use with the TV620B and has enhanced the hydraulic cooling capacity of the machine to support the use of such heavy-duty, high-capacity attachments.

The Case TV620B expands on the intuitive controls of the B Series CTLs with new control features and standardization. It comes standard with adjustable electro-hydraulic controls, which allow operators to set total machine responsiveness to low, moderate or aggressive; or independently set tilt, lift and drive speed, as well as loader arm and drive control to best meet the demands of the work. A simple button lets operators select between operating in H or ISO operating patterns. And “Creep Speed” allows the operator to set machine speed at a consistent/slow “creep” while independently setting attachment speed via the throttle for optimal use of attachments such as cold planers and brooms.

Exclusive to the Case TV620B is new “hydraulic on demand” performance that allows the operator to easily select the percentage of auxiliary hydraulic flow to the attachment via the machine’s multifunction display. This allows the operator to dial in attachment performance to their preference or the recommendation of the attachment manufacturer.

The TV620B also features standard automatic ride control with adjustable speed settings, which engages ride control immediately when the CTL hits a prespecified speed. This feature is enabled and disabled simply within the multifunction display in the machine. It also features a foot pedal that serves one of three functions — accelerator (traditional acceleration), trans (reduces drive speed but retains RPM for loader arm functions), and decel (traditional deceleration), based on operator preference.

The Case TV620B meets emissions regulations with a combination of cooled exhaust gas recirculation, diesel oxidation catalyst and selective catalytic reduction technologies — it features no diesel particulate filter and requires no regeneration.

The enhancements in machine design and technology also includes the new Case SiteConnect Module — first introduced on Case G Series wheel loaders. The SiteConnect Module allows for more robust telematics performance, remote diagnostics and remote software updates that streamline fleet management activities. This enhanced connectivity allows the machine owner to share — at their discretion — real-time machine information with the dealer and the Case Uptime Center in Racine, Wis.

The SiteConnect Module also improves the volume, flow and integration of data to the Case SiteWatch telematics platform for real-time monitoring, management of maintenance and service intervals, examination of equipment utilization and overall machine record keeping.

Precision Grader Blade

Case also debuted the Precision Grader Blade, a powerful new attachment for large-frame compact track loaders that delivers the grading performance of a motor grader in a more compact and agile footprint.

The Case Precision Grader Blade is compatible with 2D and 3D machine control solutions — including Case SiteControl grader solutions powered by Leica Geosystems — to deliver improved productivity, quality and efficiency in fine grading applications.

“This is built for those applications where contractors have always wanted the power and precision of a motor grader, but were unable to justify it based on size, access or cost,” said Jerry Hutkowski, product manager, Case Construction Equipment. “It takes the large-frame CTL that many contractors already own and turns it into a powerful precision grading solution capable of working on sites where a larger machine isn’t practical or can’t gain access.”

The Case Precision Grader Blade is compatible with the use of laser receivers (single or dual), sonic tracers (single or dual), GNSS/GPS (single or dual) and total stations and the attachment itself is “plug and play” with the auxiliary hydraulics and 14-pin electrical connection of a large-frame CTL. It features a 108-inch moldboard capable of jointly changing elevation and slope through dual lift cylinders, as well as achieving 60 degrees of combined blade rotation and 26 inches of combined blade side shift. Motion and action for the grader blade are controlled through the existing joysticks of the CTL; no additional controls are required.

The attachment is built for minimal maintenance with powder coated metal surfaces, composite greaseless bushings at the pivot points, and heavy-duty axles with sealed hubs. It comes standard with a bolt-on reversible cutting edge. Optional equipment includes bolt-on side plates for material containment similar to a grading box, and twin mirrors that provide greater visibility down to the moldboard.

Wheel loader enhancements

Finally, Case added comprehensive enhancements to its entire line of G Series wheel loaders to improve performance and productivity, increase uptime and empower the operator with greater control and understanding of the machine and its work.

“Wheel loaders — especially those in production and heavy working environments — achieve significant improvements in performance and profitability when you shorten cycle times, simplify operation and increase uptime,” said Andrew Dargatz, product manager, Case. “Each of the enhancements introduced in the new Case G Series loaders drive those incremental improvements that lead to big gains in productivity and efficiency.”

New enhancements to the Case G Series wheel loader lineup include:

  • An all-new touchscreen display that delivers the intuitive user experience and puts all core operational controls at the operator’s fingertips
  • New configurable buttons built into the armrest allow the operator to program certain settings/tasks and perform their work faster/more efficiently throughout the day
  • New adjustable electro-hydraulic controls that further dial in machine performance to each task
  • A new Smart Power Mode that improves communication between the engine and transmission based on workload to further drive fuel efficiency and reduced tire wear
  • New electro-hydraulic parallel lift functionality (Z-bar and XR models) that improves material retention and loading operations
  • A fully integrated OEM payload system that helps improve load accuracy and provides detailed reporting for billing, tracking and operational performance
  • Enhanced telematics performance and reporting, and remote diagnostics for increased uptime
  • Integration and connectivity with the Case North American Uptime Center
  • A new Tire Pressure Monitoring System that optimizes tire life and fuel consumption
