More New Skid Steers from CASE: SR270 and SV300

CASE Construction Equipment became the first manufacturer to offer skid steer loaders with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology with the introduction of the SR270 radial-lift skid steer and the SV300 vertical-lift skid steer, the company reports. The new SR270 becomes the industry’s largest radial lift skid steer with a rated operating capacity of 2,700 lbs. at 90 HP.

“Owners and operators who get in the habit of topping off their diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank when they refuel will notice that there’s no additional attention required – it’s that easy,” says Warren Anderson, brand marketing manager, CASE Construction Equipment. “There are no daily or intensive maintenance efforts required by the new technology, no diesel particulate filter to maintain or replace – and owners will notice a more efficient use of the machine’s engine.”

The new skid steers weigh in at 8,117 (SR270) and 8,655 (SV300) lbs, deliver 282 lbf of torque and bucket breakout force up to 8,776 lbs. Rated at 90 HP, the machines include standard 24.2 gpm and 37.6 gpm high-flow auxiliary hydraulics for power and attachment versatility. A 25.5-gallon fuel tank extends runtimes and ensures that the machine can work the entire day without refueling.

Heavy-duty features include a 950 CCA battery for consistent starts in cold weather, a more robust rear door for added protection, industry-exclusive standard front and side lighting, a block heater and an easily accessible remote jump-start – ensuring the machine will be ready to work throughout the year, day and night. 

The EZ-EH (electro-hydraulic) setup menu features nine adjustable speed and control sensitivity settings, a single rocker switch allows operators to switch between the CASE “H” operating pattern and ISO pattern controls. New operator handles with industry-exclusive detents improve controllability and feathering by providing greater responsiveness to the actions/movement of the machine.

The engine, filters and fill points are all located at the rear of the machine for quick access. The battery is now housed behind its own side-entry panel at the rear of the machine for easy access and service. Both the SR270 and SV300 feature CASE’s easy-tilt cab for convenient access to the drivetrain compartment. Hydraulic quick couplers allow operators to quickly change attachments from the comfort of the cab, while Connect Under Pressure (CUP) manifolds require no tools to connect or disconnect hydraulic lines.

About SCR
Because SCR is an after-treatment system, it lowers exhaust temperatures and does not require unproductive fuel use associated with burning off particulate matter – great for larger engines. This offers a significant reduction in fuel use compared to systems with DPFs. This SCR solution is more efficient and requires less maintenance than DPFs, as it does not require filter replacement or upkeep. It also removes complexity for operators and maintenance staff by eliminating regeneration associated with DPFs.
