Case Construction Equipment 580N EP backhoe loader is lower-horsepower version of the company’s 580N backhoe that maintains the same backhoe lift capacity and breakout force with greater fuel efficiency and a maintenance-free final Tier 4 solution.

The 580N EP features Case’s particulate matter catalyst — a combination of a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and a high-efficiency flow-through filter that requires no fluids and no diesel particulate filter (DPF) maintenance/upkeep. It delivers 74 hp — and with a backhoe bucket breakout force of 11,517 lbs., backhoe lift capacity of 2,858 lbs., and peak torque of 233 ft.-lbs.

The backhoe comes with company’s exclusive over-center design, which transfers weight to the front of the machine for smooth roading and better traction and allows the operator to dig closer to the machine. N Series controls are simple, with adjustable pilot control towers, a control pattern selector, and adjustable wrist rests.

It comes standard with SiteWatch telematics and can be outfitted with a variety of standards/options such as Power Lift, Ride Control, Comfort Steer, ProControl, Easy Flex side lights, and a mechanical universal backhoe bucket coupler that allows operators to use attachments from competitive machines on their Case backhoe. Each machine is also available in the proven Case Extendahoe configuration for extended digging and reach capabilities.
