Case has introduced two versions of the CX290D: a dedicated material handler and a scrap loader. With an operating weight of 72,100 pounds and lift capacities of up to 24,650 pounds, each purpose-built model is designed specifically for use with grapples, magnets, shears, and other attachments used in the scrap and waste industries, and offers several features that fine-tune the machines for material handling and scrap loading applications.
The CX290D material handler features a 177-horsepower Tier 4-Final engine, a hydraulically controlled elevating cab, longer arm and boom with optimized hydraulic circuits for improved attachment performance and reduced shock in the cab, as well as an electronic sensor-driven anti-interference device that automatically prevents the grapple or other attachments from coming into contact with the machine’s structure during operation. The unit also features additional guarding on the cab and undercarriage designed to protect the operator and machine during waste- and scrap- handling applications. The scrap loader version features a gooseneck arm and a straight boom configuration for dedicated scrap-loading applications.
Case says the longer arm and boom of the material handler version and the gooseneck arm and straight boom of the scrap loader version have been designed for optimal performance in material handling and scrap loading applications. The undercarriage of both versions is built with thicker steel and features additional guarding to protect undercarriage components when working in rough scrap and waste handling environments.
