With an operating weight of 12,295 pounds, the Case CX55B compact excavator enters a new size class for the company. It features a large boom and arm for greater reach and delivers 11,240 lbf. of bucket digging force. It is powered by a 39.3-horsepower engine and digs to a depth of 12 feet 10 inches. A center-swing boom enables the operator to dig around stationary objects or alongside obstacles. Minimum tail swing allows the machine to rotate 360 degrees with less than 11.7 inches of the upper structure extending beyond the tracks, Case says. The full-size cab design is 7 inches wider than other B Series compact excavators, and and cab height is 8 feet 4 inches for easy transport. A dozer blade for finish grading comes standard.
