CASE launches new G-Series Evolution wheel loader

CASE Construction Equipment has announced an upgrade of its mid-sized wheel loader range with the launch of an eighth model.

The 651G Evolution is intended to fill a gap between the 621G and 721G. Based on the parent model 621G, CASE said the new machine offers ‘improved loading performance, delivering class-leading levels of productivity and performance’.

The larger 721G, 821G and 921G Evolution models have also been upgraded and now boast increased tipping loads and bucket dump heights. CASE added that this additional performance has allowed the firm to offer a new range of higher capacity re-handling buckets on all models from the 651G to the 921G, with curved side edges and a redesigned top guard delivering ‘increased capacities, improved bucket penetration and material retention’.

The 651G Evolution, along with the three larger models, features reinforced front and rear chassis sections. Heavy duty axles are fitted as standard, with a choice of differentials on each axle. Customers can choose between a 100% differential lock on the front axle and an open differential on the rear, a 100% differential lock on the front and a limited slip differential at the rear, or a limited slip differential in both axles.

The model boasts a Level 2 ROPS/FOPS protected cab, with a touchscreen display providing control over machine functions. This includes the ability to set engine speed at a fixed rpm and the possibility of automatic engagement of ride control at a set speed. The G-Series loaders already allow operators to access a digital manual through the monitor, while the cab features adjustable electrohydraulic control levers, new power modes, and configurable buttons on the main console.

An integrated weigh load scale is designed to allow users to accurately load and record material moved, with the availability of a range of data sets, including job ticket, customer name, truck registration and target load data. All of this information can be automatically transmitted to the site office via the CASE SiteWatch telematic portal.

CASE G-Series Evolution wheel loaders are powered by EU Stage V FPT Industrial diesel engines. These have a capacity of 4.5-litres on the 521G, 6.7-litres on the 621G to 921G and 8.7-litres for the 1021G and 1121G. Wastegate turbochargers are used on all models up to the 921G, with variable geometry turbos for the two larger models. All engines use FPT’s Hi-eSCR2 after-treatment system, with no requirement for EGR. The machines are compatible with a range of synthetic and sustainable fuels, including HVO and XTL.
