Extreme Durability Test - continued
Exceptionally bad weather, which hit the area with days of torrential rains, created the most extreme terrain conditions the machines – and the guests – will probably see in their entire careers, and the CASE equipment performed flawlessly, handling the difficulties with grace.
The construction business operators who braved the weather to travel from across the country to the CASE Road-building event were delighted with the opportunity we gave them to see first-hand what the machines are capable of in the most extreme conditions,
declared M. Slim Tlili, Sales Manager at Sotradies.
The full team from Sotradies, supported by the CASE Business Director and the product, training, service and marketing managers, welcomed the guests and led them in their voyage of discovery of the brand’s road-building equipment.
A Star Performer
The first part of the day was dedicated to the star of the event: the state-of-the-art CASE 865B 18-ton, 220 hp grader.
It is one of three models in the B Series, which have gained an excellent reputation for their ability to work in all environments and their high productivity. They are designed to provide superior operator control, visibility and comfort.
They feature a powerful, fuel-efficient, turbocharged FPT engine. For higher performance, the Variable Horse Power on the 865B model maximizes operation, thanks to the triple horsepower engine curve.
Massimiliano Sala, CASE Product Marketing Manager Roadbuilding Equipment for Europe Africa and Middle East said:
We’re in the condition to supply the best grader for the African market. The range is perfectly sized for roadbuilding and road maintenance jobs. CASE graders have been tested throughout the years on the challenging North African jobsites.
The upgraded cabin, improved design and weight-to-power ratio make them the best-in-class solution for the market and value for money for the customer. We rely on the product and look forward to challenging the competition in the field.
A Wide offering for road building equipment
After the grader, participants discovered the 35-ton, 271 hp CASE CX350B crawler excavator, the 230 hp 821F wheel loader, two T Series backhoe loader models and two SR Series skid steer loader models.
In addition to demonstrations of all the machines in real road building jobsite conditions, participants were able to test-drive all the models in the field with the guidance of CASE demonstrator Steve Beardmore and product specialist Massimiliano Sala.
