Case gained up to 14 percent in fuel economy with an SCR-only solution to comply with U.S. EPA Tier 4 Interim emissions regulations. The dozers use diesel exhaust fluid, but have no diesel particulate filter to maintain.
Access to all of the routine service items, including test ports, on the Case M Series Dozers is available from this one access panel.
Case has upgraded the electrical system to 24 volts and the electronic computer sits in the compartment behind the batteries.
Case redesigned the box-section power-angle-tilt frame to improve durability on its M Series dozers.
Case claims best-in-class drawbar pull with its new M Series dozers. Five models range from 92 to 214 net hp, with operating weights from 21,500 lb. to 48,800 lb. Engine power was increased 9 percent in the 134-hp 1150M and 226-hp 2050M, and the 1650M develops 16 percent more power at 162 hp. Increased power allows the engines to run at lower speed while developing more torque and boosting drawbar pull. Case says the Fiat Power Train (FPT) engines with SCR-only emissions-reduction technology (no particulate filters used) save 10.5 percent in fuel, and increase in productive efficiency 19 percent compared to previous models.
- Choice of soft, medium and aggressive reversing and steering mode settings
- New blade-control joystick includes blade-shake button to clean the blade, and grading mode that reduces blade speed by 50 percent to improve accuracy
- Load-management system automatically reduces track speed (increasing torque) with a heavier load on the blade and increases track speed (reducing torque) with a lighter load on the blade
- Customize control response with smooth, moderate or aggressive settings on blade sensitivity (1150M through 2050M), steering sensitivity and shuttle sensitivity
- Revised transmission layout improves oil cooling
- Models 1650M and 2050M use a V-shaped cooling package to add cooling surface and a hydraulic reversible fan
- Available from the factory with a pre-installation kit for Topcon, Trimble and Leica blade control systems
- New box-section PAT frame is designed to improve durability
