Case Construction Equipment has announced the upgrade of its largest excavator – the CX800B – to its B Series line of excavators. The new CX800B features increases in fuel efficiency and productivity, as well as improved operator comfort and ease of maintenance.
The excavator also features an electronically controlled, common rail Tier 3-certified 15.7L Isuzu engine which delivers 532 net hp (397 kW).
The CX800B is available in standard and mass excavation configurations, making it ideally suited for a variety of quarry, road and bridge and other applications requiring heavy muscle and long reach.
The common rail fuel injection system, combined with the redesigned hydraulic system, delivers increased fuel efficiency over the previous model.
“The CX800B delivers increased fuel efficiency and productivity, which results in more cubic yards of material per gallon of fuel,” said Mitchell Blake, Case brand marketing manager.
“Our first customer is operating the CX800B three shifts a day in a mining operation,” Blake said. “In December, they ran the machine for more than 600 hours. The foreman’s not only amazed at its productivity, but also at the fuel efficiency. He said that, compared to a competitive excavator model, the CX800B will save more than $100,000 a year in fuel.”
