Case Construction Equipment’s CX130D and CX160D are the latest excavators to the D Series. They are designed to offer significant operational gains, 5% faster cycle times, improved multifunctional controls, and up to 8% greater fuel efficiency.
The excavators employ a SCR Tier 4 Final solution that lets the engine run at peak performance throughout the work cycle with no diesel particulate filter regeneration or associated lifetime service costs. They also feature faster cycle times via a new electronically controlled pump, a larger control valve, and multiple sensors. The CX130D has a 102 hp rating and the CX160D operates with 112 hp.
The excavators also feature the CASE Intelligent Hydraulic System. The system is made up of four parts: the Boom Economy Control (BEC), which reduces RPMs by using gravity during boom down and swing; Auto Economy Control (AEC), which lowers RPMs during idle and automatically shuts down the engine after a preset idle time; Swing Relief Control (SWC), which reduces hydraulic power at the swing start; and Spool Stroke Control (SSC), which adjusts hydraulic pressure during digs.
The CX130D and CX160D excavators also provide the operator with three working modes – Speed Priority, Heavy and Automatic. The options help the machine conserve energy and exert only as much power as needed.
The arm and boom of both excavators are stronger for greater durability and support. The undercarriage is built with thicker steel and a new single-slope design that reduces dirt accumulation and eases cleaning. The CX130D is also available with an optional front dozer blade that provides added stability, as well as grading and backfilling capabilities.
The excavators also feature a Bluetooth radio that gives operators hands-free functionality. A standard rearview camera feeds a 7-inch widescreen monitor that also provides operators with real-time access to important performance parameters, including fuel consumption, operating hours, and machine information.
Each machine is available with an optional LED working light package that provides illumination similar to sunlight.
