CASE CX210C EXCAVATOR BOOSTS POWER, FUEL ECONOMY
LAS VEGAS – Case Construction Equipment today launched its CX210C full-sized excavator at the World of Concrete 2012 show. The most recent addition to the company’s C Series product line, the CX210C model features increased fuel efficiency, productivity and improved serviceability and operator comfort.
The new Case CX210C excavator achieves 160 net hp (119 kW) using Tier 4 Interim-certified cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) technology that burns cleaner while delivering superior horsepower. A new narrow undercarriage version, measuring 8 ft 6 in (2.59 m) wide, is available for easier transport.
“The new Case CX210C excavator delivers both the lower operating costs and higher productivity that contractors expect,” said Tim O’Brien, brand marketing manager, Case Construction Equipment. He cited 10-percent fuel economy gains, 3-percent cycle time reductions and 7-percent lift capacity increases among crucial product improvements.
“An advanced version of the Case Intelligent Hydraulic System technology reduces total fuel consumption and improves performance,” O’Brien said. Boom Economy Control lowers engine RPMs during the boom down and swing operation, while the Auto Economy Control lowers RPMs when the joysticks are inactive. Swing Relief Control technology manages the hydraulic power allotted at the start of the swing operation, and Spool Stroke Control creates an automatic pressure adjustment during digging operations.
“These fuel efficiency gains are especially significant,” O’Brien explained. “While typical CEGR systems lose fuel efficiency, we’ve actually increased fuel efficiency on our Case CX210C excavator by 10 percent over the previous B Series model. While delivering exceptional fuel efficiency, the Case C Series models continue to be in the top of their class for productivity.”
He continued, “Because excavators run with little change to engine speed, CEGR technology was the best choice for efficiency and convenience.”
With 3-percent faster cycle times than previous models, the new Case CX210C excavator can load more trucks or trench further during every work shift. Along with faster cycle times, the new Case excavators offer operators smoother and easier control and maneuverability.
The CX210C provides 7-percent more lift capacity and boasts a 440 lb (199.6 kg) increase in operating weight to tackle bigger jobs. The excavator has an operating weight of 47,800 lb (21,685 kg), a bucket digging force 34,171 lb (152 kN), arm digging force of 24,729 lb (110 kN) and a maximum dig depth of 21 ft 10 in (6.65 m). Standard bucket sizes range from .65 to 1.53 yd3 (.5 to 1.17 m3).
The new excavator offers three power modes – SP (speed priority), H (heavy duty) and A (automatic) – to allow operators to choose the best mix of power and fuel efficiency. The throttle settings also adjust the hydraulic settings for further tailoring to specific tasks.
Improved operator comfort, visibility
The Case CX210C excavator gives operators a more spacious, comfortable and quiet cab, with 19-percent better visibility from the operator’s seat (including a new roof skylight) compared to previous models.
Noise reduction improvements, including vibration refinement on the cab’s reinforced tubular structures, create an extra-quiet cab environment, with automotive-like noise levels as low as 69.9 dBa.
