The first model in Case’s B Series motor grader line is model 865B VHP. Power comes from a Case 6.7-liter engine with triple horsepower ranges to match the power requirements to specific applications while saving fuel; a direct drive transmission provides eight forward and four reverse gears. The grader has a forward-mounted articulation joint and rear-mounted cab, giving operators a good view of the moldboard and ground-engaging equipment. A spacious new cab offers an improved control layout, and it maintains traditional nine-lever controls. It has an operating weight of 35,993 pounds and a standard 13-foot-wide moldboard. An exclusive multi-radius, involute moldboard allows the 865B VHP to move more material with less horsepower and less fuel than competitive models, Case says.
