CASE showcased three new small articulated loader models at CONEXPO: telescopic SL12 TR, electrified SL22EV and telescopic SL35 TR. These machines are designed for a wide range of applications from landscaping and agriculture to tree services and material handling. The company plans to unveil a total of seven new small articulated loader models throughout 2023 and 2024.
“The articulated design matched with light weight and turf tires allows for excellent agility that doesn’t tear up existing turf or other surfaces, all while still operating in a very compact footprint. And with a wide range of attachment options, these loaders are the ultimate support machines both for work in the yard and on site, on turf and on improved surfaces,” said Brady Lewis, product manager, CASE Construction Equipment. “The new small articulated loader lineup represents a very intentional bridge between our existing lineup of skid steers, compact track loaders and compact wheel loaders, and the new mini track loader line we’re also introducing at CONEXPO.”
Attachment flexibility is a strategy for CASE as it expands and fills out its compact and sub-compact loader fleet. The smaller sizes of the new small articulated loader line will share attachment commonality with the new mini track loader (MTL) fleet, while the larger models in the range will share compatibility with standard skid steer and compact track loader attachments.
The addition of telescopic booms on rubber-tired loaders also offers a new dimension of versatility and performance to the CASE product lineup. The electrified SL22EV further builds out the CASE electric vehicle portfolio, delivering solutions that work indoors or outdoors while providing operators with a quiet loader solution — all while eliminating emissions and maintenance related to diesel engines.
The new lineup features machines spanning 25-hp to 75-hp with rated operating capacities (50 percent of tipping load) ranging from 1,200-lbs. up to 5,000-lbs. and cabs that include both ROPS and foldable open ROPS configurations. Units will hit CASE dealers later in 2023 and into 2024.
“We’re bringing these solutions to market with the support of a full-line manufacturer and a mature dealer network that reaches coast-to-coast,” said Lewis. “No one will outwork CASE in meeting the demands of loading and material handling applications — and this new product line ensures a comprehensive range of options for businesses of all shapes and sizes.”
