CASE CX290D Material Handler

The CASE CX290D Material Handler and Scrap Loader boasts a 177 HP Tier 4 Final engine. Equipped with a hydraulically controlled elevating cab, these models offer unmatched visibility and operational efficiency. The more extended arm and boom, coupled with optimized hydraulic circuits, allow for superior attachment performance, making these machines ideal for intense waste and scrap handling applications.

CX290D Features

Innovative Productivity Features:

  • Intelligent Hydraulic System: The CASE CX290D models feature an advanced hydraulic system for faster cycle times, ensuring efficient material handling and loading operations.
  • Specialized Boom and Arm: The Material Handler version has a reinforced curved boom for optimal reach and a 16’5″ straight arm with a bucket tilt cylinder for precise attachment operation. The Scrap Loader variant utilizes a straight boom and goose-neck arm, perfect for efficiently handling and loading scrap and waste material.
  • Auxiliary Lines and Anti-Interference Device: Both models have auxiliary lines for easy attachment connectivity and an anti-interference device to prevent contact between the boom, arm, and machine structure during operations.

Unmatched Fuel Efficiency:

Leveraging SCR and DOC technologies, the CX290D models meet Tier 4 Final emissions standards without needing a DPF, eliminating the associated replacement and regeneration costs. The three power modes—Automatic (A), Heavy Duty (HD), and Speed Priority (SP)—allow operators to optimize fuel economy based on the task at hand.

Operator Comfort and Elevated Visibility:

  • Elevating Cab: The elevating cab feature raises the operator 7.5 feet from its stowed position, offering an elevated eye level of over 16 feet. This enhanced visibility facilitates quicker and safer material movement.
  • Spacious Cab and Advanced Monitoring: The spacious cab is complemented by a 7-inch widescreen monitor that displays crucial performance parameters, including fuel consumption and operating hours. The optional CASE Max View Monitor extends visibility to 270 degrees, ensuring comprehensive situational awareness.

Ease of Serviceability:

The CX290D models emphasize ease of maintenance with features like hydraulic oil site gauges, grouped service points, and auto-locking side panels. Extra-large DEF tanks reduce refill frequency, while increased handrails around the machine enhance safety during daily inspections and service checks.

CASE CX290D: The Ultimate Material Handling Solution

With its powerful engine, specialized handling features, and commitment to operator comfort and machine serviceability, the CASE CX290D Material Handler is a testament to its engineering excellence.
