CASE Construction Equipment India displayed its recently launched EX` Series backhoe loaders and 1107 DX compactor at the 74th session of Indian Road Congress (IRC). The event provides a national forum for sharing of knowledge and pooling of experience on the construction and maintenance of roads and bridges, including technology, equipment, research, planning, finance, taxation, organisation and related policy issues. This year's edition was held in Guwahati from 18 to 22 January 2014.
The new CASE EX Series backhoe loaders, presented nationwide last November, was fully developed in the country to match the specific needs of the Indian construction market. The EX Series is equipped with a powerful and reliable S8000 engine, developed by FPT Industrial. The engine features an air after cooler system that increases the density of the intake air, improving efficiency and decreasing fuel consumption.
The Case 1107 DX vibratory soil compactor completes the compactor line-up, which also includes the recently upgraded 752 tandem compactor and smaller 450 DX. Available in three configurations to match all road needs, the Case 1107 DX features a new water-cooled turbocharged 105 hp engine that delivers better fuel efficiency and lengthens the operating life of the machine.
