Case Introduces TV450 Compact Track Loader; Unveils N-Series Loaders

CASE Construction Equipment introduced the all-new TV450 compact track loader (CTL), a 10,610-pound, vertical-lift machine with rated operating capacity of 4,500 pounds at 50 percent tipping load. The newest and largest CASE CTL ever built features an industry-leading 9,188 pounds of breakout force, and optional high-flow (3,450 psi at 39.5 gpm) and enhanced high-flow (4,000 psi at 35 gpm) hydraulics.

“The CASE TV450 provides lifting and earthmoving performance that will meet the demand of general contractors, landscapers, roadbuilders – and the 4,000 psi with enhanced high-flow makes this an excellent platform for attachments,” said Deborah Townsley, product marketing manager, CASE Construction Equipment. “It’s a powerful, large-frame loader that handles heavy materials and still provides the advantages of low ground pressure for job sites where finished lawns and underground utilities may exist.”

It’s available in either standard mechanical (H Pattern) controls, or optional electro-hydraulic controls (H and ISO pattern interchangeability) – EZ-EH – which provide adjustable speed and control sensitivity settings to meet the needs of each application and attachment. Also, operators can switch between H and ISO patterns via a simple rocker switch.

Several premium features are standard on the new CASE TV450, including heavy-duty front and side lights, front cylinder guards, a heavy-duty rear door, remote oil and fuel filters, and debris ingression sealing to prevent material from entering the engine compartment. It also offers optional hydraulic one-way, self-leveling and ride control for a smoother ride and greater material retention.

The CASE TV450 meets Tier 4 Final emissions standards with a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system that only requires diesel exhaust fluid – no maintenance or lifetime service related to diesel particulate filters. Operators can quickly access all routine service points, including the engine, filters, fill points and others, through a single point of access at the rear of the machine. The compact track loader features CASE’s easy-tilt cab for easy access to the drivetrain compartment, and reinforced structures for enhanced machine durability and reliability to meet the demands of harsh working environments.

Updated N Series Backhoe Loader

Updates to the N Series backhoe loaders simplify operation and improve productivity. These updates for 2019 include:

PowerBoost: A new button on the left-hand backhoe joystick provides a momentary boost of increased hydraulic power without decreasing engine RPM (so as not to affect speed/cycle times). This feature is ideal for digging through tough conditions, such as hard clay, rock and frost. CASE backhoes still feature PowerLift, which provides added lifting power (comparable with some mid-sized excavators) at lower engine RPM for powerful, smooth lifting and craning operations.

PowerDrive Upgrades: A new feature on CASE S-Type and H-Type transmissions, Direct Drive, engages the engine and transmission directly for improved gradeability, faster roading speeds, improved fuel economy, and faster travel times around the job site and between jobs. The PowerDrive transmission maintains the existing auto-shift feature and includes an automated activation of the direct drive feature in third and fourth gears, based on torque demand and job-site conditions.

New Factory-Installed Hydraulic Thumb: Available on all extendahoe models, this improves material handling performance and is compatible with a mechanical or hydraulic bucket coupler, allowing the owner to change buckets/attachments without affecting the thumb installation.

New Loader Control Functions: The loader joystick features three new switches that simplify operation and make it more intuitive. A declutch trigger on the back of the joystick allows for easy operation while performing continuous/repetitive operations, such as loading trucks, etc. A roller/rocker switch with a detent position can be locked in the forward position for use with attachments, such as brooms and snow blowers. The F-N-R switch allows for quick and easy directional changes without taking a hand off the joystick.

New Backhoe Control Roller Switches: Newly enhanced roller switches for auxiliary and extendahoe control added to the backhoe pilot control joysticks provide intuitive control and improved metering.

New Electronic Fuel Priming System: Standard on all 580N and larger backhoes, this system is easily accessible at ground level and evacuates all of the air out of the fuel lines for a simpler and more efficient service of the fuel filters.

Increased Horsepower: 580SN Wide Track model has 110 horsepower for improved acceleration and gradeability (especially when paired with the new Direct Drive).
