CASE launch the new CX290D excavator designed for material handling.
CASE extend it’s D series range of crawler excavators with a new model; the CX290D Material Handling. This material handling excavator builds on the brand’s long established history of being at the forefront of the materials handling industry to deliver high productivity and outstanding fine control.
The new CASE CX290D material handling excavator is specifically designed and engineered for material handling applications. With it’s superior reach and lifting capacity, it makes short work of moving a variety of waste, logs, garbage and scrap metal. The dedicated elevating cab structure provides the operator with a commanding view of the working area from a height of 5.06m, The reversible fan leans the radiators more effectively, keeping high performance in the dusty conditions typical of many material handling applications. The CX290D will also become available with goose necked arm and straight boom in the scrap loading version.
Several features ensure the safe operation of the elevating cab. The rigid elevating structure enables the operator to work at their most productive with confidence in the machine’s safety at full reach. The cab can be lowered from the cab or with an external control switch, for greater operator safety, and its decent speed is limited in case of a burst hose. The emergency cab lowering device is now operated hydraulically, further enhancing safety. A new device prevents interference between the machines and its attachments through sensors placed on the bucket cylinder. Improvements to the pilot circuit reduce front attachment shock at full stroke. This results in a much less shaky cab, better comfort and greater safety around the machine. The front guard further enhances the operator’s safety in the cab.
The CX290D material handling excavator benefits from the improvement brought to the D Series by the introduction of the Tier 4 Final engine and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) after treatment system and Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC). This DPF free solution saves time and maintenance costs, in addition to delivering a powerful and fuel efficient performance. The improved hydraulic system results in faster cycles and the faster arm open speed provides an advantage when tossing scrap over.
The new features on the CX290D material handling excavator include a new LED working light package, which is more than three times brighter than its halogen equivalent. A third camera is also available to further enhance all round visibility.
