Case launches B Series compact track loaders, skid-steers

February 5, 2020 -  By

Case Construction Equipment launched its next generation of compact track loaders (CTLs) and skid-steers with the introduction of the B Series — five CTLs and eight skid-steers spanning radial and vertical lift patterns, as well as numerous horsepower and size classes.

“Case CTLs and skid-steers are enhanced to deliver a completely new and intuitive operating experience while also standing up to the rigors of heavy earthmoving and attachment use,” said George MacIntyre, product manager for compact equipment, Case. “The B Series retains the styling of previous Case loaders, yet critical operational systems have been reengineered for greater performance, and fully integrated with new control and operator interfaces to give contractors a powerful match of productivity, efficiency and convenience.”

New Case B Series loaders feature a redesigned operator interface, including new left- and right-hand posts with simple ignition, push-button operation, throttle control and switches for all core machine functions. Contractors may choose between standard mechanical, mechanical hand-and-foot and electro-hydraulic controls when specifying a machine. A new eight-inch LCD multi-function display with backup camera comes with all electro-hydraulic models — and it can be added to mechanical configurations for use with the backup camera and operational displays (but without the electro-hydraulic control capabilities). Electro-hydraulic models provide simple switching between ISO and H operating patterns with the push of a button.  

The new eight-inch LCD multifunction 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. It provides operators with the most fully functioned operator experience found in a Case CTL or skid-steer, including:

  • New electro-hydraulic control performance: Operators can 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 job.
  • “Creep speed” capability: 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 high-capacity hydraulic attachments such as cold planers and brooms.
  • Operator profiles: Operators can store and recall specific setting profiles to match either individual operator preference or job types.
  • Economy mode and engine protection settings: New Case B Series skid steers and CTLs feature engine shutdown, ignition timeout and engine protection features that extend the life and performance of the engine, battery and other critical systems.
  • Improved fault codes and troubleshooting: New fault codes with descriptive text help better identify specific issues the machine may be going through and make it easier to communicate with the dealer to determine next steps, if necessary.

Case CTLs and skid-steers feature 360-degree visibility — enhanced by the new backup camera as well as a cab-wide rearview mirror that comes standard on all machines. The low entry threshold and large front window provide visibility to the front of the machine and down to the attachment. Large side windows and a large curved rear window allow for sightlines to the sides and the rear of the machine.

The CASE B Series provides either standard, high-flow or enhanced high-flow auxiliary hydraulics with pressures up to 4,000 psi for running high-capacity hydraulic attachments such as cold planers and mulchers. All models feature a connect under pressure manifold design that allows for quick and toolless removal of hydraulic lines.
