Case IH launches new front end loaders

Case IH has launched a new range of front end loaders for tractors in the UK market, and they’re set to make their way Down Under at a later date.

A brand new range of front end loaders has been designed and launched for Case IH tractors, ranging from the Farmall C to Puma models.

Now being built in France, the new loader series is split into three ranges, and dealers can order a tractor and loader together for the customer to ensure the process is more efficient.

The new A, U and T front loader ranges, comprising 27 models, can be ordered through the Case IH dealer configurator digital software, making possible a single purchase of selected tractor and matched loader, along with any attachments.

The flagship T range is aimed at high-output work, with premium specifications including hydraulic self-levelling, and in sizes that match Case IH tractor models from the Farmall 55C to the Puma 240.

Next comes the U range, aimed at everyday handling tasks, and available with mechanical self-levelling and non-self-levelling versions, matching Case IH tractors from the Farmall 55C to the Puma 175.

At the base of the line-up is the three-model A range: an entry-level, lighter front loader for general handling work, with three models featuring mechanical self-levelling, suiting Farmall 55C to Maxxum 140 tractors.

Lift heights

The 10 loaders in the T series have maximum lift heights that start at 3.75m, with the flagship model lifting to 4.70m. Lift capacities range from 1,390kg on the smallest model to 2,720kg on the largest.

All feature a design that protects the hydraulic hoses by routing them inside the frame and crossbar.

Standard hydraulic self-levelling incorporates integral compensation cylinders connected to the headstock-dumping hydraulic cylinders, resulting in fast load/unload cycle times.

This can be aided by an auto-unload system option, which synchronises grab-opening and bucket-dumping functions.

As on the T series, the hydraulic lines on the 14 models of the U range are routed inside the loader frame to protect them from damage. Maximum lift heights on these models start at 3.5m and rise to 4.5m, while maximum lift capacities for the U range start at 1,210kg and top out at 2,230kg.

The A series loaders have lift capacities from 1.3 to 1.7 tonnes, and maximum lift heights from 3.5 to 4m.

Standard on all three ranges is Shock Eliminator shock absorbing, which minimises transfer of load shocks through to the tractor and operator.

Hitching the loader to the tractor, as well as uncoupling it, is eased and speeded by the Fitlock 2+ System, which automates the process, while a Mach System multi quick-coupler makes for fast connection of hydraulic and electrical services in a single process.

Simple numbering

The new Case IH loader line uses a simple numbering across the three ranges to make selection simple and load/lift ratings easily understandable.

All model numbers begin with L, for Case IH front loader, and, as an illustration, the L4020T model lifts to a maximum height of 4m and has a maximum lift capacity of two tonnes. The final letter denotes the range.

Tractors specified loader-ready from the factory are fitted with a common bracket and the Mach System multi hydraulic/electrical service quick-coupler.

Control of the loader and third and fourth hydraulic service functions are via the tractor hydraulic valves and joysticks. The package is completed with a robust crossbar and integrated engine hood guards.

The new range of Case IH loaders is covered by the same warranty and product support processes as the Case IH tractors to which they are fitted.

This new and enhanced level of support from Case IH and its dealers extends to spare parts supply, with stocking and support of these items treated in the same high-level manner as tractor spare parts.
