CASE Construction Equipment has just introduced the CX350D LR, a new long reach excavator that provides better dig radius, depth and precision for deep or long-distance jobs, all while retaining the control and responsiveness of the other D Series excavators.
Boasting an elongated boom and arm, as well as additional counterweight, the CX350D LR excavator is specially designed for use in applications requiring long-distance bucket reach and precision.
The extended arm and boom give the CX350D LR a maximum dig radius of 61 ft 3 in (18.5 m) and a maximum dig depth of 46 ft 3 in (14 m). The new machine weighs in at 88,200 lbs (40,006 kg) and is powered by a 268 hp Tier 4 Final diesel engine. It is capable of up to 24,500 foot-pounds of bucket digging force.
As with all CASE D Series excavators, the following features come standard with the CX350D LR: heated air-ride seat, Bluetooth radio, rear and side-view cameras, Free Swing for improved craning, laying or lifting of offset loads, oil sample ports, and an easy control pattern selector.
It also features the CASE Intelligent Hydraulic System, a new electronically controlled pump, larger control valve and advanced sensors, giving the machine greater speed and efficiency.
As CASE explains, “The four systems that make up the CASE Intelligent Hydraulic System are: Boom Economy Control (BEC), which reduces RPMs and leverages 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 efficiently regulates hydraulic swing power at the start of the swing, and Spool Stroke Control (SSC), which adjusts hydraulic pressure to optimal outputs and minimizes unneeded operation functions.”
With origins dating back to 1842, CASE has long been a leading American manufacturer of construction equipment. Its product lineup includes backhoe loaders, compactors, crawler dozers, excavators, graders, skid steer loaders, compact track loaders, wheel loaders and telehandlers.
