The new introduction brings the entire product line to Tier 4 Final compliance featuring Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) engine technology that increases fuel efficiency, keeps exhaust temperatures down, and eliminates regeneration or lifetime diesel particulate filter (DPF) costs/maintenance.
An all-new operator environment, controls and interface make the G Series the most intuitive and easy-to-operate wheel loaders CASE has ever produced, and packages/options are available to optimise the machines.
G Series Wheel Loaders for work in specialty applications such as waste/scrap, agriculture and snow removal. Efficiencies in power/output, maintenance and operator ergonomics/interaction, combined with CASE ProCare, provide an exceptionally low and predictable total cost of ownership/productivity across the entire product line. The new G Series line includes:
- The business end
CASE G Series wheel loaders feature a broad range of bucket and linkage options to optimise each machine to its application. Linkage options include Z-bar (best breakout force and general operation), XR (extended reach) and XT (tool carrier/parallel-lift configuration for best handling stacked/palletised materials). Each loader comes standard with a four-speed PowerShift transmission, and an optional five-speed transmission with lock-up torque converter is available on the 721G, 821G and 921G for roading speeds up to 40 KPH.
- Power and productivity
Each CASE G Series wheel loader is powered by FPT engines that feature SCR technology to meet Tier 4 Final standards. CASE was the first to introduce SCR into heavy construction equipment and has the industry's most practical SCR experience in the field. Each loader leverages the best in hydraulic and electronic technologies to fully optimise machine output and performance, providing a comprehensive solution that achieves exponential fuel savings compared to the competition and older equipment. These systems combine to provide the operator with a choice of four operating modes that best match engine output to application, ensuring the machine only expends as much fuel and power as required for the job.
- Clean, cool operation
All CASE wheel loaders feature innovative cooling technologies that keep operating temperatures down, keep the engine compartment clean, and - in the case of the 521G through 921G - have allowed for a unique positioning of the engine that ultimately provides excellent balance and stability for both roading and the hardest digging/loading applications. The 521G through the 921G include the CASE-exclusive mid-mounted CASE cooling module, which features coolers positioned in a cube design that ensures access to clean and cool ambient air, while also limiting debris build-up and providing easy access for routine cleaning. An optional variable-speed reversing fan further minimises the need for manual cleaning.
- Next generation operating environment
The G Series wheel loaders feature the most intuitive, comfortable and easy to operate/manage environment of any CASE wheel loader ever produced. Inspired heavily by automotive design, the new cab features the latest in electro-hydraulic controls, ergonomic design and operator interfaces that make operation simpler and more efficient. This includes a solid-state controller that provides software control over electrical power distribution and basic vehicle functions - all while eliminating fuses and relays, and significantly lowering the amount of wiring throughout the machine. A membrane keypad replaces a series of rocker switches for common machine functions, and a new steering console mimics the driver controls - from lights and wipers to turn signals - found in most cars/trucks.
The brains of the machine all connect back to a new eight-inch LCD monitor that provides the operator with simple control and greater insight over many of the loader functions and activities. This includes changing displays for day and night operation, information on operating parameters such as fuel levels, temperatures and pressure readings, trip information, an optional integrated rear view camera, and fingertip selection of operating modes and features such as Auto Idle and Auto Shutdown.
The cab was also engineered to bring a new level of comfort and ergonomics to the operator. This includes three seat options, including a premium heated air-ride seat, and seat positioning, control adjustability and leg room that provides ideal comfort adjustability for operators of all sizes.
Greater visibility to all sides of the machine is further achieved by a new, one-piece rounded windshield, a rear grid defroster and redesigned external mirrors more optimally placed to prevent operator fatigue. These loaders also feature an all-new HVAC system that achieves the fastest cab cool-down of any loader in the industry, and excellent heating/defrosting/defogging capabilities.
The operator environment is further accentuated with new automotive-style plastics on the inside that are more durable and resistant to scratches, and easier to clean. A new Bluetooth radio with full streaming, satellite radio (with optional equipment) and music device compatibility is also available to enhance the operator experience.
