Case Construction Equipment has released a new snow-removal package for the SR250 and SV300 skid steers. In addition to optimizing the machines for snow removal, Case is making it easier to order the package through its dealer network.
The 90-horsepower SR250 (radial lift) has a rated operating capacity of 2,500 pounds (2,700 pounds with optional counterweight) and breakout force of 7,480 pounds.
The 90-horsepower SV300 (vertical lift) offers a rated operating capacity of 3,000 pounds (3,200 pounds with optional counterweight) and a breakout force of 7,570 pounds.
The snow-removal package includes high-flow auxiliary hydraulics that provide up to 37.6 gallons per minute for use with snow blowers and brushes. The package also comes with hydraulic self-leveling and Case “Ride Control” for smooth and controlled boom operation while engaged and while traveling.
The new package also includes an enclosed cab and a heated air-ride suspension seat for long days of working in cold environments. It also comes with a block heater to assist in cold starts, and a four-corner LED strobe kit and heavy-duty lighting package/side lamp kit for optimal visibility – both for the operator and for drivers/pedestrians in the area.
With the snow-removal package, the SR250 and SV300 come with larger tires (14 X 17.5) for more speed and power while working on paved surfaces. A heavy-duty rear door and hydraulic couplers reinforce the machines’ reliability, Case says.
Both skid steers also are fitted with a new “EZ EH” (electro-hydraulic) setup menu, which features nine preset speed and control settings that can be adjusted on the fly. This allows the operator to match controls to their preference. A single rocker switch allows operators to switch between the Case “H” operating pattern and ISO pattern controls. New handles with additional “feel points” improve controllability and feathering.
The SR250 and SV300 also offer one of the widest cabs in the industry at nearly 3 feet. The cab is fully sealed and pressurized against noise, dust and fumes. Case says its cab-forward design provides best-in-class visibility, while the low step and entry threshold make it easy for the operator to get in and out of the cab. And as with all Case skid steers, the engine, filters and fill points are all located at the rear of the machine for easy access.
