Case Construction Equipment launches a complete update of its loader/backhoe product line with its four new N Series models. The company describes the N Series as “stronger everywhere,” with increases in backhoe breakout force, lift and reach. The new machines also provide improved visibility and operator comfort.
The new Case 580N, 580 Super N, 580 Super N Wide Track and the 590 Super N (pictured) loader/backhoes replace the company's M Series 3 product line. The four new models all feature 4.5-liter turbocharged engines, ranging from 79 hp in the 580N to 108 hp in the 590SN.
“One new feature that is a real game-changer on the N Series is Case-exclusive Power Lift,” says Rob Marringa, marketing manager, Case Construction Equipment. “Power Lift channels the hydraulic power directly to the boom with the touch of a button. As a result, our backhoe lifting capabilities outperform competitive models by as much as 39 percent — while running at low engine RPMs.”
The increased backhoe strength takes new N Series performance beyond the previous M Series models. A new fabricated boom design increases strength while maintaining the over-center design. Backhoe bucket pins are larger and stronger to accommodate the improved lift capacities.
During the research and development process, Case enlisted equipment operators to test the N Series enhancements. Dennis Zentner, owner of DRZ Contracting, Delta, British Columbia, says: “The 580SN WT backhoe performed well on grading, trenching, backfilling, heavy lifting, hole-patching and rock-breaking. Its heavy-lifting ability is fantastic. It will save me from using an excavator for lifting.”
