CASE extends backhoe offering
The new in-line geometry, which maintains the S shape boom that is part of the CASE backhoe DNA, ensures that the effort is evenly distributed.
CASE Construction Equipment has extended its backhoe loader offering with the introduction of a new backhoe design with in-line cylinder geometry and inner extendahoe on its 580ST model. Now customers can choose the design that matches their specific needs: the new in-line geometry or the CASE boom with overlapping cylinders and outer extendahoe.
The new in-line geometry, which maintains the S shape boom that is part of the CASE backhoe DNA, ensures that the effort is evenly distributed over the entire length of the boom, resulting in high stress resistance. In addition, the narrower frame of the boom provides better visibility of the working area at the back of the machine.
Operators looking for exceptional breakout force and great reach will find their ideal solution in the new in-line boom. With 5 520 daN and 4 100 daN respectively, the 580ST featuring the in-line boom design delivers great breakout force both at the bucket and at the dipperstick – and it reaches as far as 6 647mm from the swing centre.
The CASE DNA boom geometry with outer extendahoe is a sound solution for tough working conditions, as the sliding part never touches the soil, while the components that do are protected against impact and material accumulation.
The design with overlapping cylinders reduces the CASE 580ST’s overall boom transport height to just 3,5m, making it easy to transport the machine with no waste of time and fuel. More time is saved with the patented integrated hydraulic quick coupler, which allows the operator to change backhoe attachments from the cab with the simple flick of a switch.
