Bo’s Plant Hire opts for Case skid steer loaders

The Case SR130s were delivered to Bo’s Plant Hire in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

CSE Equipment has delivered six new Case SR130 skid steer loaders to Bo’s Plant Hire, with its head offices in Mt Edgecombe, Kwazulu-Natal. These machines complement the company’s fleet of skid steers and attachments that is used in diverse industries throughout the country.

“Case SR130 skid steer loaders, with advanced features for optimum performance, enhanced productivity and increased operator comfort, are the smallest machines in this series. These machines are particularly well suited for digging, prying and pushing applications in smaller construction and agricultural projects, as well as for land clearing and landscaping,” says Graham Clare, KZN branch manager, CSE Equipment – the Capital Equipment Group (CEG) of Invicta Holdings. “Bo’s Plant Hire – which is situated in the rapidly growing Mt Edgecombe/Cornubia area, with a national branch network – has extended its range of larger Case SR175machines to now include the SR130 series.

“According to Bo’s managing director, Craig Cook, there is a growing demand in the area for compact machines to handle smaller projects and investment in this equipment forms part of the company’s commitment to extending its portfolio of machines to meet exact market requirements.”

Robust Case SR series skid steer loaders have recently been upgraded for exceptional driving force, increased stability and reliable handling in all conditions, including tight spaces.

Turbocharged, Tier 4 certified diesel engines with four cylinders, which provide the power and torque required to efficiently cope in the toughest site environments, also ensure operating efficiency and fuel economy.

An important feature of this highly efficient series is the large fuel tank – with a capacity of between 60,5 litres – which enables the machine to operate all day without the need to stop operations for re-fuelling.

The Case SR130 unit has a 590 kg operating capacity and a peak torque rating of 143 Nm at 2800 rpm. These machines have a tipping load capacity up 1 179 kg and the breakout force of the bucket cylinder is 18,6 kN.

There is a new ‘Power Stance’ chassis with up to 21% longer wheelbase and 30/70 front/rear weight distribution, designed to safely increase the capacity to lift and haul more material. These machines also offer increased travelling speeds and improved stability, regardless of working conditions.

The new design of this series enables easy, ground line access for daily maintenance checks. Two retaining bolts facilitate convenient cab tilting for access to hydraulic and transmission components when necessary. A safety locking system, which prevents the cab from dropping, is automatically activated. Battery and environmental drain hoses are easily accessible from the side of the machine for quick service and maintenance.

The new cab design of this series offers 25% more interior width, with improved visibility, comfort and control. The cab has been sealed to reduce noise levels and dust ingress. There is an ultra narrow wire side screen design, with more glass surface area to provide 360° visibility for the operator. Side lighting enables 24 hour operation.

Optional attachments for these skid steer loaders include buckets, pallet forks, breakers, augers, sweepers, backhoes, stump grinders, cement mixers, cold planers, trenchers, rollers and slot cutters.

An hydraulic coupler enables the operator to switch attachments, without having to leave the cab. The standard Connect Under Pressure (CUP) feature allows connection of tool hoses, without the need for a wrench.

Various tyres for specific applications include heavy and severe duty, non-pneumatic, flotation, mining and premium liner options.
