CASE Construction Equipment has upgraded its F Series compact wheel loader lineup with new adjustable electro-hydraulic controls. This added functionality allows operators to adjust the responsiveness of the lift and tilt bucket functions for improved control and efficiency on the jobsite.
The company first announced the addition of the electro-hydraulic controls at bauma 2019. Comprised of 20 sensors and 20 electrohydraulic actuators, the technology provides better operator control and combined machine movements.
Lift and tilt settings can now be adjusted with two new 3-way rocker switches (high, medium, low) mounted on the side console, allowing operators to adjust the responsiveness of the loader lift arms independently of the attachment tilt functions. These new programmable settings allow operators to program the machine’s response based on their personal preferences, or to better meet the demands of the job at hand.
The new electro-hydraulic controls also offer automated bucket metering functionality, providing operators more precise and consistent movement of the bucket edge while metering or sifting material into a truck or feed wagon.
A new E-inching pedal uses an electronically-controlled inching valve to provide greater response and more control in applications where the operator requires precise movements at slow speeds. The pedal has also been ergonomically positioned for improved operator comfort.
