At ConExpo-Con/Agg 2017, CASE Construction Equipment introduced two new crawler excavators to its D Series lineup: the CX490D and CX500D. These new models are designed for heavy excavation work and replace the company’s previous 47-metric ton excavator the CX470C. Each model is built to provide significant operational gains, including cycle times up to 10 percent faster, improved responsiveness and multifunctional controls, and greater fuel efficiency.
An electronically controlled hydraulic pump and larger control and solenoid valves boost breakout forces, increase lifting strength and improve responsiveness. D Series models offer more standard features than previous CASE excavators, simplifying the buying process and making them extremely versatile and operator friendly. All CASE D Series excavators provide peace of mind and lower total cost of ownership through CASE ProCare.
The CX500D – the largest Tier 4 Final excavator in the D Series – is a dedicated model for mass excavation that provides outstanding breakout forces and performance. With a special heavy-duty attachment coupler, larger bucket cylinders and optimized kinematics, the CX500D works with larger buckets than the CX490D, providing industry leading speed, productivity and efficiency.
