Gradall XL 3100 V Hydraulic Excavator Now Features the Tier 4-Final Compliant Volvo Penta Diesel engine

The Gradall XL 3100 V hydraulic excavator, featuring the Tier 4-Final compliant Volvo Penta diesel engine, meets the highest global standards including the demanding Stage IV (EU) and Tier 4 Final (U.S.) emission requirements.
The single engine, with fuel efficiency improved by up to 5 percent, is designed to power the excavator up to 60 mph on highways, or 5 mph for repositioning around job sites from the upperstructure cab.

The same engine also powers the upperstructure boom, including swing motions, and famous Gradall telescoping, tiling boom movements. The advanced hydraulic system has pressure-compensated, load-sensing valves with reliefs on all circuits. This system delivers the right amount of hydraulic power to the boom to perform conventional excavator digging, demolition and barrier placement as well as sloping, finishing, storm and canal cleanup, tree trimming, and many other jobs using a host of attachments.

Along with the new engine, the XL 3100 V hydraulic excavator includes an upgraded high-performance, high-reliability 24-volt electrical system, creating a better power source. An operator cab safety option provides rollover protection that meets safety test requirements and is integrated within the existing cab structure, without external support.
The XL 3100 V has a host of mobility advantages including highway travel speed capability up to 60 mph, eliminating the expense, time and manpower needed by excavators that require an extra truck and a lowboy trailer. At the end of the day, the XL 3100 V models also can be quickly driven back to the safety of the equipment yard.
At 40,930 lbs. (18,566 kg), the XL 3100 V model has a full-tilting boom with a maximum reach of 27 feet, 3 inches (8.3 m) at grade. The telescoping boom design maintains maximum boom force throughout the dig cycle, and the full boom tilt is able to position attachments exactly where they are needed without losing power. That’s a huge advantage over conventional booms that cannot deliver full power during the entire dig cycle, and sacrifice attachment power if they use a boom-end tilting mechanism.
Rated bucket force is 17,990 lbs (80 kN) while the telescoping boom crowd force is 21,940 lbs (97.6 kN). Maximum dig depth is 18 feet, 4 inches (5.6 m). Loading height maximum is 15 feet, 5 inches (4.7 m).
With the extra boom power, XL 3100 V models maximize their utilization of excavating buckets, trenching buckets, ditching buckets, dredging buckets, pavement removal buckets, fixed thumb grapples, boom extensions, tree limb shears, grading blades and more. As a result, governments and contractors are able to use one machine to complete work that used to require many machines.
Series V machines have almost 70 percent parts commonality, simplifying the task of maintaining inventories to complete common service functions. These machines also have longer routine service intervals, and most service locations can be reached from ground level. A global network of authorized distributors supports all Gradall excavators, supplying service advice and authorized Gradall parts.

CASE Celebrates Company’s 175th Birthday with Employees, Dignitaries and Case family members

Speakers included U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and Kaleb Case – the great grandson of company founder J.I. Case.

CASE Construction Equipment celebrated the CASE brand’s 175th birthday with a rally and luncheon attended by 800+ employees in Racine, Wis., as well as local dignitaries, elected officials and a descendant of the Case family.

The company was founded in 1842 in nearby Rochester, Wis. as the Racine Threshing Machine Works Company. It evolved into one of the world’s most iconic manufacturers of construction and agricultural equipment. Speakers included U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, the congressman representing Wisconsin’s 1st congressional district; Richard Tobin, Chief Executive Officer – CNH Industrial; and Kaleb Jerome Case, the great grandson of company founder and Association of Equipment Manufacturers’ Hall of Fame member Jerome Increase (J.I.) Case.

“2017 is the 175th anniversary of Jerome Increase Case’s journey to Racine County and the beginning of his—and our—legacy,” said Tobin. “Not every company gets to celebrate 175 years, and it’s worth taking a moment to recognize that this is a company with significant history and deep roots. To our people in the audience, and our colleagues all around Racine and beyond, I want to say thank you for doing your part to continue this momentum.”

Elected officials in attendance also recognized the pride in craftsmanship exhibited by the plant, and the significance of the milestone.

“I’ve been coming here since 1998, and to travel the countryside, and to travel the world, and to see this equipment all around – it gives us such great pride in what you do,” said Speaker Ryan. “Your reputation as the highest-class producer of the greatest machines that the construction industry and the agriculture industry know – thank you for making us proud and congratulations on this fantastic legacy of 175 years.”

The State of Wisconsin also awarded the company with a special citation recognizing its 175 years in business, presented to the company by a bipartisan coalition of Wisconsin lawmakers from the region: Speaker of the Wisconsin State Assembly Robin Vos, Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca, Senator Van Wanggaard and State Representative Cory Mason. UAW Region 4 Director Ron McIlroy and Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave also recognized the company – and J.I Case descendant Kaleb Jerome Case brought the event to a roaring close with humorous anecdotes from Case family lore.

“J.I.’s passion was power, speed and durability,” said Case. “J.I.’s love of machines prompted him towards manufacturing. I have a copy of the letter he wrote to his wife Lydia. He had just delivered the last of well under a dozen machines and lamented that he would be out of business – no one would need any machines any more. Wow. He should be here today.”

Titan Machinery Donates Equipment to Team Rubicon for Habitat Development Project at DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge

Wetland development project provides heavy equipment operator training time for Team Rubicon volunteers.    

CASE Construction Equipment dealer Titan Machinery donated the use of two excavators to Team Rubicon for a service project and training event at the DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge in Iowa and Nebraska. The excavators—a CX210C and CX250D—were used to remove several levees and water culverts as part of a wetland habitat development project.

Managed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the 8,362-acre refuge is located along the Missouri River floodplain and provides essential habitat for resident, migratory and endangered species. Team Rubicon has a partnership with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to create training opportunities for their volunteers, and the organization has worked on several habitat management and mitigation projects in refuges all over the United States.

Team Rubicon tore down four levees and removed seven water culverts that were initially built to develop a wetland habitat for migratory birds. The work that Team Rubicon did will offer improved management capabilities on over 200 acres of wetland on the refuge and allows for greater fish passage for spawning fish from the lake into these wetlands. The team also built a temporary dam, which allowed them to remove several overgrown trees from a canal, which improved water flow into DeSoto Lake.

Team Rubicon is a veteran-led disaster response organization that deploys teams globally. Its heavy equipment operators have been trained as part of a partnership with CASE that began in November 2015.
