Earlier this year, Case Construction Equipment introduced the first models in its CX B Series line of full-size excavators, which features improvements from previous models.
The CX B Series machines deliver significant increases in fuel efficiency over their predecessors. The new models also provide up to a 17% increase in horsepower, a difference achieved through the use of electronically controlled, common rail Tier III-certified engines, which burn cleaner and more efficiently.
Hydraulic horsepower has been increased 4 to 10% across the line. The new excavators also provide increased breakout forces, primarily due to larger-diameter hydraulic cylinders.
The cabs on the CX B Series have been modified to improve operator comfort and ergonomics. The new models feature memorized operator adjustment, which automatically adjusts to the last settings selected by the operator. The engine runs quietly, and the isolation-mounted cab contributes to a further reduction in noise levels.
Visibility also is improved on the new cab because the reinforced posts on the corners are narrower, providing a broader view. The right-hand window is now an uninterrupted piece for clear viewing. An optional see-through skylight further
Also new on the B Series is the ability to store up to 10 auxiliary hydraulic flow patterns to allow the operator to quickly adapt the machine to different attachments, an important capability on jobsites requiring multiple attachments and especially useful for the rental market.
