Case 400 Series skid steers (Circle 913) feature an extra-heavy-duty design, improved reliability and efficiency and ease of service. The 400 Series machines are available in five radial- and three vertical-lift models ranging from 49 to 82 net hp, with maximum rated operating loads from 1,500 to 3,000 lb.
Tier 2 certified, Case Family III engines provide quiet, smooth power for productive operation. A new grid heater option is available for cold-weather starting.
A new cooling system provides balanced cooling to both the engine and hydraulics, which along with improvements to the auxiliary hydraulics, further increases reliability.
For operator comfort and ease of operation, the Case 400 Series machines are equipped with low-effort servo-hydrostatic controls that reduce fatigue during operation, and optional air conditioning is available for models 430 and above.
Visibility to the bucket is improved with the repositioning of instrumentation to the right upright post. A more comfortably positioned, trigger-style switch activates the two-speed operation available on models 430 and above. Two-speed operation allows the machines to accelerate to nearly 12 mph for quicker cycle times and movement around the jobsite.
