Case Construction Equipment introduced its D Series excavator line to the trade press during an event at the company’s customer service center campground in Tomahawk, Wis. Case unveiled the following excavators: the CX210D, the CX250D, the CX300D and the CX350D.

Philippe Bisson, Case brand marketing manager for wheel loaders and excavators, says the CX350D was designed for jobs in the aggregates industry.

“The CX350D has a high lifting capacity, so that makes it a really great machine to have in a quarrying industry,” he says.

The CX350D does not have a diesel particulate filter and there is no regeneration. Because of these features, Bisson says there are no filters to replace and no downtime associated with regeneration.

All excavators released include LED lighting, with two lights in the front, two in the back and one on each side. Bisson says the excavators also come with Tier 4 Final engines and a Case Pro Care 3,000-hour warranty.

Brad Stemper, Case solutions marketing manager, says the D-Series excavator lineup includes Case Site Watch, a telematics system that lets operators know how often the machine is idling.

“These excavators have a 3,000-hour warranty, but if they’re idling frequently, that time will go by quicker,” he says. “That’s why [Case Site Watch] telematics are so useful – you can extend the life of a machine by checking this system.”

In addition, Case announced plans to launch Case Site Solutions Academy this summer to provide operators with online training tools. Stemper says the online tool will give operators and dealers the opportunity to discuss with one another best uses of their equipment.

“It will be a baseline of information so all customers receive the same basic training needs,” Stemper says. “It’s a personal-driven resource that allows customers to learn about the equipment at their own pace. They can go through Case Site Solutions Academy in bites or mouthfuls at a time.”
