CASE CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT TO LAUNCH WHEELED EXCAVATOR RANGE
CASE announces the launch of a four-model E-Series wheeled excavator range, with a fifth, larger model
joining the series in the future. The machines will be built under an existing supply agreement with South
Korean manufacturer Hyundai Construction Equipment.
The CASE wheeled excavator line-up will include the conventional tail swing WX140E and WX160E, along
with the short radius WX155E SR and the WX175E SR. These four models will be joined by a
conventional tail swing WX210E at a later stage.
Smooth operation and maximum control thanks to proven Bosch Rexroth Load Independent Flow
Sharing hydraulic systems on the four smaller models.
Durability, reliability and efficient roading capability thanks to heavy-duty ZF axles and hydrostatic
Enhanced site safety thanks to large operator cab with CASE Maximum View Monitor enabling
360° view cameras and additional rear radar.
Maximum comfort cruise control, optional ride control and joystick steering.
Operate on a range of biodiesels, HVO, and other synthetic fuels thanks to Cummins Stage V
diesel engines with no requirement for exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) Customisable specification
The new CASE E-Series wheeled excavators will boast proven well-established quality components. They
will be available in a range of lower frame layouts, with several combinations of front and rear dozer
blades plus front and rear outriggers.
Upper equipment will comprise a choice of mono or two-piece main booms for all machines except the
WX175E SR, which will be supplied with a two-piece articulating boom only. Standard cruise control will
make travel between work sites easier while moving material in a work site is made more efficient by the
optional ride control and even more so by using joystick steering controls.
The new CASE wheeled excavators are powered by EU Stage V compliant Cummins diesel engines. The
four smaller models will use a Cummins B4.5 engine, delivering an above industry standard, outstanding
maximum power of 129kW, while the WX210E will come with the larger B6.7, offering up to 145kW
The engines feature a highly efficient exhaust aftertreatment module, incorporating a diesel oxidation catalyst
(DOC), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
With no need for complex exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system to comply with Stage V requirements,
the maintenance cost is much reduced. In addition, fuel filter service intervals are 1,000 hours and engine
oil and filter intervals are set at 800 hours, further maximizing machine up time for the operator.
The engines are capable of operating with a range of fuels to suit the customer. This includes B7 and B20
biodiesel, hydrotreated vegetable oils (HVO) and gas-to-liquid (GTL), coal-to-liquids (CTL) biomass-to-liquid
(BTL) paraffinic fuels.
The WX140E through to the WX175E SR all use a Load Independent Flow Sharing hydraulic system from
Bosch Rexroth. This delivers smooth, progressive control for the operator, while enhancing multi-function
operation of boom, dipper arm and bucket functions. A pressure compensator is built into the control
system, to allow flow sharing performance for simultaneous travel and boom operations.
The larger WX210E will come with an open centre hydraulic system with Electric Positive Flow Control,
from Kawasaki. This uses a twin-pump layout, offering the power distribution required for smooth,
productive operation. An electro-hydraulic proportional pressure reducing valve helps to reduce fuel
consumption and boost performance.
Operators can also benefit from an optional automatic digging brake and a fine swing control, to further
ease control of the machine’s movements. An auto safety lock, similar to the system found on the CASE ESeries
crawler models, prevents unwanted movement of the machine’s upper structure when the gate lock
Cab specifications improve operator comfort
The E-Series cab features a telescopic steering column with two tilt points, to make it easier for operators
of all sizes to find a comfortable driving position. The windscreen has parallel wipers in both the upper and
lower sections for the widest possible coverage and the machines can be supplied with an optional
rearview camera on the right-hand side. The CASE 360° Maximum View Monitor is also offered as an
option, along with rear-mounted radar for maximum visibility and safety.
The CASE Maximum View Monitor uses four cameras, mounted around the machine, to provide a 360°aerial
view. This provides the operator with a complete view of the machine on the worksite, increasing
safety and visibility and preventing potential collisions. The optional radar alarm can be set to five distances
from the machine, warning the operator of any possible collision to the rear or the sides of the excavator.
Six LED work lights are standard, further improving visibility in poor light conditions.
An 8” touchscreen monitor provides access to a menu system that controls all functions of the machine. A
secondary screen is available for cameras. The operator can navigate the main screen through a jog-dial
controller, that also controls the engine throttle. This jog-dial has 10 engine rpm positions.
The monitor provides ECO guidance for the operator, showing a range of data including idle times to help
the driver to improve their performance and productivity while working. Proportional joystick controls
are standard, with a forward/reverse selection switch in the lever head. The lever also contains a front
axle oscillation lock and a detent feature. Joystick steering is optional, as is a smart key with push-button
The operator can select within the monitor menus up to 10 pre-set auxiliary hydraulic flow and pressure
settings. This makes it easier to inter-change hydraulic attachments, with hydraulic flows suited to each
work tool. The right-hand joystick also has a switch to activate one-way or two-way auxiliary flow.
CASE is expanding its machine offering with the addition of the E-Series wheeled excavators, to meet the
developing needs of customers across Europe. Dealers will be able to provide customers with a range of
attachments and machine specifications to suit individual business demand.
