S K I D S T E E R S 25 S K I D S T E E R S Case Delivering Big Performance with Impressive Breakout Force Advice to Buyers "While equipment owners are demanding more power, what they are usually looking for is productivity, which relies mostly on hydraulic horsepower," says George MacIntyre, product manag- er, Case Construction Equip- ment. "It's important for equipment buyers to know that the formula for hydrau- lic horsepower [power = psi x gpm/1,714] makes no men- tion of engine input horse- power." M anufactured in Wichita, Kan., Case promotes its skid steers as featuring class- leading breakout force, torque, hydraulic flow and 360-degree visibility (all dependent on model or class). The company was also the first to take its entire product line Tier 4 Final and incorporate selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technol- ogy into models 75 hp and higher. Case manufactures nine skid steer loaders, ranging in rated operating capacity (ROC) from 1,300 up to 3,400 lbs. This includes six radial- lift skid steers ranging in ROC from 1,300 to 2,700 lbs and three vertical-lift skid steers ranging in ROC from 1,850 up to 3,400 lbs. Rated at 74 hp, the SR240 and SV280 deliver torque of 232 lbs, a bucket breakout force of up to 8,776 lbs and standard hydraulics (24.2 gpm) and high-flow auxiliary hydraulics (37.6 gpm) for power and attachment versatility. Weighing in at 7,400 lbs, the SR240 is an all-purpose skid steer that offers an ROC of 2,400 lbs, while the 8,090-lb SV280 offers an ROC of 2,800 lbs. Both feature a diesel oxidation catalyst — a maintenance-free emissions solution that requires no diesel particulate filter (DPF), no DPF regeneration or replacement and no fluids to add. With a rated operating capacity of 3,400 lbs and bucket breakout force of 9,531 lbs, the 90-hp SV340 is Case's most powerful skid steer. The SV340 offers optional high-flow (38.7 gpm at 3,450 psi) and enhanced high-flow (35 gpm at 4,000 psi) auxiliary hydraulics and heavy- duty 14 x 17.5 tires. Additional counterweights and a long wheelbase provide a stable plat- form for high-production and heavy attachments. The SV340 offers one of the widest cabs in the industry, says Case, and the lowest entry threshold for easy access and greater visibility down to the attachment. The cab-forward design, large rear window and ultra-narrow wire side screens provide 360-degree visibility. The SV340 features EZ-EH (electro-hydraulic) controls that provide nine adjustable speed and control sensitivity settings that can be adjusted on the fly. This allows the operator to quickly switch between person- alized settings for speed and control and to tailor machine performance to the application. A single rocker switch allows operators to switch between the Case "H" operating pattern and ISO pattern controls for jobsites where numerous operators with different operating preferences are working. The skid steer also features push-button Ride Control, which cushions loader arm movement for a smoother ride and greater material retention.
