New Tier 4 Final Backhoe from Case

The new Case 580N EP backhoe loader provides a maintenance-free Tier 4 Final solution in a practical, cost-effective machine. A lower-horsepower version of the company’s 580N backhoe, it maintains the same backhoe lift capacity and breakout force with greater fuel efficiency and a maintenance-free Tier 4 Final solution.

The 74hp model has a backhoe bucket breakout force of 11,517 lbs, backhoe lift capacity of 2,858 lbs, and peak torque of 233 lbft. The 580N EP features CASE’s particulate matter catalyst – a combination of a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and a high-efficiency flow-through filter that requires no fluids and no diesel particulate filter (DPF) maintenance/upkeep. While the new model is designed to optimize efficiency and power for price-conscious buyers, it can be outfitted with a selection of options for greater machine and attachment flexibility.

All CASE N Series backhoes feature the company’s exclusive over-center design, which transfers weight to the front of the machine for smooth roading and better traction, and allows the operator to dig closer to the machine. N Series controls are simple, with adjustable pilot control towers, a control pattern selector and adjustable wrist rests. Each N Series machine also comes standard with Adjustable SmartClutch, which lets operators customize the feel of forward-to-reverse transitions (smooth, moderate or aggressive) to their preference. All CASE N Series backhoes feature the SmartFit™ bucket tooth system, which features heavy-duty self-sharpening teeth and a hammerless fastener system for easy installation.

N Series Backhoes are available with a series of options: 

  • Power Lift increases hydraulic capacities of the boom, as well as bucket forces. 
  • Speed Selectable Automatic Ride Control automatically turns ride control on and off based on vehicle speed. 
  • Comfort Steer allows operators to maneuver quickly, even in confined areas, by taking only 1.5 turns of the steering wheel to go from lock-to-lock (compared to three turns on standard models).
  • Hydraulic Quick Coupler increases versatility;change attachments without leaving the cab.
  • ProControl is a swing dampening system that eliminates rebound on the backhoe, providing faster cycle times, less wear on components, greater operator precision and less fatigue.
  • Engine ECO Mode can provide 10 percent fuel savings with minimal loss in productivity. 
  • Auto Engine Protection Shutdown will shut the engine down before any critical failures.
  • S-Type Auto Shifting Transmission shifts gears automatically when on.
  • Heated Air-Ride Seat for optimal operator comfort, night and day.
