CASE Construction Equipment introduced the new TR340 and TV380 compact track loaders (CTLs): the first Tier 4 Final CTLs outfitted with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology. The TR340 rounds out the CASE lineup of large-frame CTLs, now providing customers with both a radial-lift (TR340) and vertical-lift (TV380) design to choose from in the larger footprint. This combination of size, strength and flotation is ideal in earthmoving applications that require low ground pressure/minimal ground disturbance. The new Tier 4 Final models feature best-in-class torque, breakout force and standard auxiliary hydraulic flow, as well as the industry’s widest cab with best-in-class 360-degree visibility.
The CASE SCR solution is provided by Fiat Powertrain Technologies (a CNH Industrial company) and has proven itself in on-road trucking, heavy earthmoving and agricultural applications. The technology is now being outfitted to benefit smaller engine ranges, including CTLs.
“The SCR solution is easy and relatively hands-off – operators who remember to top off their DEF tank while refueling will notice no other day-to-day changes,” says Warren Anderson, brand marketing manager, CASE Construction Equipment. “There is no diesel particulate filter (DPF) to maintain or replace, and SCR allows for a more efficient use of fuel as all diesel is consumed in productive effort instead of regeneration.”
The new radial-lift TR340 weighs 10,000 pounds with a rated operating capacity (ROC) of 3,400 pounds and a bucket breakout force of 8,700 pounds. The vertical-lift TV380 weighs 10,550 pounds, provides 7,510 pounds of bucket breakout force and an ROC of 3,800 pounds. Both machines are rated at 90 gross horsepower, produce 282 foot-pounds of torque and increase hydraulic flow rates (standard: 24.2 gallons-per-minute (gpm); high-flow: 37.6 gpm). The 25.5-gallon fuel tank extends runtimes and ensures that the machine works the entire day without refueling.
