TOMAHAWK, Wis. (June 11, 2008) â€” Case Construction Equipment recently introduced the 586G Series 3 and the 588G Series 3 rough-terrain forklifts, featuring Tier III-certified Case Family engines.
These machines come with a 4.5 liter turbocharged Case engine that delivers 80 net horsepower (60 kW), a 10 percent increase from previous models. The 586G Series 3 has a lift capacity of 6,000 lb (2722 kg) and an operating weight of 14,337 lb (6503 kg). For larger loads, the 588G Series 3 lifts up to 8,000 lb (3628 kg) and has an operating weight of 16,684 lb (7568 kg).
Case G Series 3 rough-terrain forklifts are the industry leader and deliver outstanding performance in the toughest of environments,â€ said Jim Hughes, brand marketing manager, Case Construction Equipment. One of the reasons these machines consistently outperform competition is the same long-life powertrain components that are present in our world-renowned Case loader/backhoes.â€
Comfort and control
The Case G Series 3 forklifts offer easy-to-operate controls, a choice of seats and operator compartment entry from either side. Load control is available for smooth operation and minimal chain stress for reduced maintenance cost.
For safe material handling on the jobsite, the tapered hood and wide-channel dual-mast cylinders provide excellent visibility to the work area, while the compact, low profile design of the Case forklift adds to the machine™s overall stability.
When you™re handling big loads in those tight, narrow spaces that require the muscle of a full-sized forklift, Case delivers,â€ said Hughes. The 586G and 588G both have zero tail swing, a maximum width of 88 inches (2.24m), and a 55-degree axle turn angle for a narrow turning radius. Case G Series 3 forklifts are among the fastest in the industry with a lift speed of 105 feet (32 m) per minute.
Ease of maintenance
Convenient, ground-level service access on Case forklifts saves time during daily checks and contributes to overall productivity. The roller mast design and self-adjusting wet disc brakes increase component life and reduce maintenance costs. The reliable Case Tier III-certified engine and powertrain have a two-year, 2000-hour warranty- among the best warranties in the business.
