Case Construction Equipment formed a strategic alliance with Hyundai Heavy Industries that will bring larger wheel loaders to the Case product line. The largest Case-manufactured wheel loader currently is a 274-horsepower, 5½-cubic-yard machine.
"The expansion of the Case lineup with larger wheel loaders," said Jim McCullough, Case president, "along with the heavy-range excavators, larger crawler dozers and articulated dump trucks Case already offers, adds to the full line available through Case dealerships."
The first new model resulting from the alliance will debut to contractors at Conexpo-Con/Agg 2008. The new Case model will be available in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Machines sourced through the alliance will be warranted through Case and supported by Case parts distribution and dealer network.
