CASE Construction Equipment’s all-new CX245D SR minimum-swing radius excavator is designed to provide increased digging and lifting power in confined work areas. The CX245D SR features a compact counterweight and modified boom placement that minimizes the machine’s footprint, resulting in a productive and maneuverable excavator that’s ideal for restricted conditions, such as road and bridge work, residential projects, and urban construction.

With an operating weight of 60,400 lbs., and a 160-hp Tier 4 Final engine, the CX245D SR offers increased bucket digging forces (up to 34,600 lbs.) and lift capacity (up to 22,950 lbs.) compared to the previous model.

A D Series model, the excavator is built to provide significant operational gains, including decreased cycle times, improved responsiveness and multifunctional controls, and greater fuel efficiency. An electronically controlled hydraulic pump and larger control and solenoid valves increase lifting capacities and improve responsiveness.

The CASE CX245D SR excavator meets Tier 4 Final emissions standards through a combination of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) technologies, which helps maximize uptime and performance with minimal maintenance, according to Case. There is no diesel particulate filter (DPF), no DPF regeneration, and no associated lifetime service costs.
