The first line of compact track loaders from Case combines the new Case 400 Series skid-steer loaders with the technology used to build undercarriages for Case crawler dozers and excavators. Case says the rigid undercarriage minimizes maintenance costs, and track components are protected by a large spring mounted to the front idler. There are two models: The 445CT at 74 net horsepower has a lift capacity of 3,500 pounds with power reach vertical lift. The 450CT, at 82 net horsepower, has a lift capacity of 3,857 pounds with power cycle radial arm configuration for production digging and faster cycle times.
