RACINE, Wis. (May 1, 2009) Case Construction Equipment recently added two new attachments the Multi-Fit coupler and hydraulic hammer for excavator operators interested in more speed and power on the jobsite.
Multi-fit quick coupler
Available on Case excavator models CX75 through CX470B, the Case-exclusive Multi-Fit coupler offers hydraulic quick-change operation from inside the cab. This cost-effective attachment saves time and money while increasing productivity. The coupler is especially useful for craning, utility and pipe-laying work, where buckets are changed frequently.
The patented mechanical blocking system on the coupler eliminates the need to manually insert a safety pin. A high-grade steel cast design produces a lighter, stronger and more durable attachment. The integrated lifting eye is part of the cast body, instead of being welded onto the coupler.
This universal coupler works with a wide range of buckets and attachments from different manufacturers,â€ said Mitch Blake, Case marketing manager. The coupler can grab and operate a bucket in both the excavator and â€˜face™ positions. Hydraulic check valves keep the bucket secure.â€
New hydraulic excavator hammer
Ideal for concrete work, roads and bridges and demolition projects, Case™s new hydraulic excavator hammer can be used with Case excavator models CX75 through CX290.
Complete with only two moving parts, the hammer requires no special tools for maintenance. A patented gas-assist operating cycle uses system hydraulics for 95 percent of the delivered energy. The shock absorption on Case excavator hammers creates a more comfortable operator environment too, due to the low recoil from the small amount of nitrogen charge used.
The new hammer will fit 7- to 29-metric ton excavators. The impact of the hammer ranges from 825 to 4,500 feet per pound,â€ Blake said.
The hydraulic hammer comes with a lifetime limited warranty. Seals are covered for two years and internal components are covered for three years,â€ Blake said. The critical parts, however, are covered for a lifetime.â€
Case offers nine standard excavator models. Case also produces four minimum swing excavator models, as well as a full line of compact excavators.
