At World of Concrete, CASE Construction Equipment introduced the new SR240 and SV280 Tier 4 Final skid steers — two new machines that feature CASE’s maintenance-free particulate matter catalyst solution. Both machines represent new models in the CASE lineup that provide increased rated operating capacities while still delivering performance benefits associated with much of the CASE Alpha Series line of skid steers, including best-in-class 360-degree visibility, breakout force, torque and auxiliary hydraulics.
“The industry continues to trend towards machines with higher rated operating capacities, but not all customers need the super high-end operating ranges,” says Warren Anderson, brand marketing manager, CASE Construction Equipment. “We took two of our most popular size classes and lift styles — made them Tier 4 Final — and through improvements in lift cylinders, hydraulics and machine design were able to substantially increase operating capacities.”
Rated at 74 hp, these large-frame models deliver a best-in-class torque of 232 ft-lbs, a bucket breakout force of up to 8,680 lbs, and standard hydraulics (24.2 gpm) and high-flow auxiliary (33.2 gpm) for excellent power and attachment versatility. Weighing in at 7,400 lbs, the SR240 is an excellent all-purpose skid steer that offers a rated operating capacity (ROC) of 2,400 lbs, while the new 8,090-lb SV280 offers an ROC of 2,800 lbs.
Maintenance-Free Tier 4 Final
The Tier 4 Final solution featured on both machines is entirely maintenance free, with no filters to maintain or fluids to add. CASE’s particulate matter catalyst is a combination of a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and a high-efficiency flow-through filter. The DOC oxidizes the machine’s exhaust to create heat and manage emissions. The remaining particulate matter then passes through to the filter where it is slowed and burned.
“These size classes represent large portions of the skid steer market,” says Anderson. “Engineering a truly maintenance-free Tier 4 Final solution into these machines removes all complexity, cost, effort and downtime associated with solutions that rely on diesel particulate filters (DPFs).”
Best-in-Class 360-Degree Visibility
CASE continues to lead the skid steer market in 360-degree visibility with a cab-forward design, skylight and ultra-narrow wide side screens. The machine features the industry’s lowest entry threshold, which also helps improve visibility down to the bucket and attachment. Both models also feature CASE’s distinctive large and curved rear window for excellent visibility to the rear of the machine – all working together to give the operator a comprehensive view of the jobsite as they work. They also feature industry-exclusive standard heavy-duty front and side lighting for working in night and twilight applications.
EZ-EH Controls Allow Flexibility
The SR240 and SV280 offer an EZ-EH (electro-hydraulic) setup menu with nine adjustable speed and control sensitivity settings that can be adjusted on the fly. This allows the operator to match controls to their preference for comfort and greater productivity. A single rocker switch alternates between the CASE “H” operating pattern and ISO pattern controls for operators who are comfortable with one style or the other. New operator handles with industry-exclusive detents improve controllability and feathering by providing greater responsiveness to the actions/movement of the machine.
