These include new integrated touchscreen display and operator interface, new electro-hydraulic controls, new control customizations and enhanced telematics with remote diagnostics.
These latest enhancements (standard or optionally fit based on feature) are anchored by a large touchscreen display that serves as the command centre for the new integrated onboard payload system, control customizations, improved telematics and streamlined operating parameters. The display provides tablet-like performance for accessing all critical machine settings and operational data. This includes three new color-coded arm-rest buttons that allow the operator to automatically toggle between customizable functions and displays without having to take their hands away from the controls. These buttons can be pre-set for critical functions/displays such as the payload screen, rearview camera, differential lock or declutch, and strobe activation.
The all-new payload system is integrated directly into the loader’s primary display and provides bucket weight, pass counts, accumulated/running weight, job tracking data and more for high-volume loading and production environments. This allows operators to precisely load each truck to reduce under/overload situations by accurately weighing each bucket, and cumulatively track the total weight of material loaded into each truck. It also helps operators track total loads and total volume of material moved over a period of time, and can also track history by customer, truck or material, as well as provide ticket histories. The three configurable armrest buttons can be specifically set to manage common payload operations such as zero/tare, close/start a ticket, print last ticket, or to call up lists for customers, materials and trucks.
Case G Series wheel loaders will now feature electro-hydraulic control enhancements that allow the operator to independently set lift (boom) and tilt (bucket) speed to match operator preference and loading situations. Each function can be independently set to smooth, moderate or aggressive within the new touchscreen monitor.
Operators can also take advantage of new parallel lift functionality that assists in material retention and smooth loading by automatically maintaining the angle and position of the bucket or forks. Ride control is immediately active in this mode to further minimize jolting or boom movement. Operators no longer need to choose between a loader with z-bar linkage for greater breakout force or a tool-carrier for parallel lift — these enhancements provide operators the parallel lift functionality in all of its Z-bar and extended reach (XR) model configurations.
