At a special media event at its Tomahawk, Wis., facility, Case Construction Equipment introduced a new M Series line of dozers. The new product line includes five models ranging from 92 to 214 net horsepower.

The largest model, the 2050M, is sized for the aggregates/mining market, and begins shipping in December. Pit & Quarry was on hand for the unveiling, where editors from the industry trade press had an opportunity to operate the new offerings.

The new M Series dozers were designed from the ground up and take into account extensive customer research, including testing and feedback related to durability, productivity, controls, comfort and serviceability. The company says the key features on M Series dozers include best-in-class drawbar pull, increased horsepower ratings, the first selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology built into a dozer, fuel savings up to 14 percent, improved visibility and a pressurized cab for optimal comfort.

The new models include the 750M (92 hp), 850M (112 hp), 1150M (127 hp), 1650M (150 hp), and 2050M (214 hp).

New control customizations allow the operator to better tailor machine performance to jobsite conditions, including the ability to set blade sensitivity (1150M through 2050M), steering sensitivity and shuttle sensitivity to smooth, moderate or aggressive. This allows the operator to adjust machine responsiveness and controls to their preferences and ground conditions.
