CASE introduces the TV450 compact track loader (CTL), an all-new 10,610-lb. vertical lift machine with a rated operating capacity of 4,500 lbs. at 50% tipping load. The newest and largest CASE CTL ever built features 9,188 lbs. of breakout force, and optional high-flow (3,450 psi at 39.5 gpm) and enhanced high-flow (4,000 psi at 35 gpm) hydraulics for high-power attachments such as mulching heads, stump grinders and cold planers.
“The CASE TV450 provides lifting and earthmoving performance that will meet the demand of general contractors, landscapers, roadbuilders — and the 4,000-psi with enhanced high-flow makes this an excellent platform for attachments,” says Deborah Townsley, product marketing manager, CASE Construction Equipment. “It’s a powerful, large-frame loader that handles heavy materials and still provides the advantages of low ground pressure for jobsites where finished lawns and underground utilities may exist.”
A number of premium features are standard on the TV450, including hydraulic one-way self leveling and ride control for a smoother ride and greater material retention. The unit also comes standard with heavy-duty front and side lights, front cylinder guards, a heavy-duty rear door, remote oil and fuel filters, as well as debris ingression sealing to prevent material from entering the engine compartment.
The loader retains the hallmark CASE operating environment, with a wide cab and low entry threshold for easy access to the cab and greater visibility to the front of the machine. The cab-forward design provides 360° visibility and site lines down to the bucket edge. A large, rounded rear window delivers optimal rear visibility — and an all-new standard in-cab rearview mirror further improves operational awareness.
The TV450 is available in standard mechanical (H Pattern) controls, or optional electrohydraulic controls (H and ISO pattern interchangeability), as well as optional mechanical hand and foot controls. The EZ-EH electrohydraulic controls provide adjustable speed and control sensitivity settings to meet the needs of each application and attachment, and operators are able to switch between H and ISO patterns via a simple rocker switch.
The loader meets Tier 4 Final emissions standards with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system that only requires diesel exhaust fluid — no maintenance or lifetime service related to diesel particulate filters is required. Operators can quickly access all routine service points, including the engine, filters, fill points and all other service points through a single point of access at the rear of the machine. The compact track loader also offers an easy-tilt cab for easy access to the drivetrain compartment, and features reinforced structures for enhanced machine durability and reliability to meet heavy working environments.
