G Series wheel loaders from CASE Construction have long been go-to heavy equipment. But just because it's popular in the industry doesn’t mean a product cannot be enhanced. CASE has done just that, making several improvements that not only improve performance and productivity, but also increase uptime, and empower the operator with greater control and understanding of the machine and its work.

“Wheel loaders — especially those in production and heavy working environments — achieve significant improvements in performance and profitability when you shorten cycle times, simplify operation and increase uptime,” says Andrew Dargatz, product manager, CASE. “Each of these enhancements drive those incremental improvements that lead to big gains in productivity and efficiency.”

Enhancements to the CASE G Series wheel loader lineup include a touchscreen display that delivers an intuitive user experience and puts all core operational controls at the operator’s fingertips, configurable buttons built into the armrest that allow the operator to program certain settings/tasks and perform their work faster and more efficiently throughout the day, adjustable electro-hydraulic controls that further dial in machine performance to each task, a Smart Power mode that improves communication between the engine and transmission based on workload to further drive fuel efficiency and reduced tire wear, electro-hydraulic parallel lift functionality (Z-bar and XR models) that improves material retention and loading operations, a fully integrated OEM payload system that helps improve load accuracy and provides detailed reporting for billing, tracking and operational performance, enhanced telematics performance and reporting, and remote diagnostics for increased uptime, and a tire pressure monitoring system that optimizes tire life and fuel consumption.

As with any truck or car, tire health and performance have significant effects on overall performance, tire and component life and fuel efficiency — especially when driving on underinflated tires. The tire pressure monitoring system features individual sensors that mount to the valve stem of each tire along with a receiver module that communicates the pressure for each tire onto the display and alerts the operator when the tire pressure is outside of a set range.

“That detail helps illustrate the extensive pragmatic thought that’s behind these new enhancements,” says Dargatz. “All of these new features have been driven by direct feedback from customers and dealers — from the tires to the bucket to the engine and to the controls — to provide comprehensive connectivity and systems improvement that will increase productivity and uptime while decreasing all of the operational elements that drag on performance and profitability.” 866-542-2736; www.casece.com
