With his first heavy equipment seed planted in 1842 in the form of a threshing machines, founder of the Case Crop. Jerome Increase Case began what would become a worldwide heavy machinery competitor around the world. Defining itself as a true innovator, years after its origin Case went on to become the first mass producer of heavy machines powered by steam engines. However, it wasn’t until the 1960s that Case adapted a new technology from a turkey farm in Minnesota. The first skid steer was actually a three-wheeled device (to help with pivoting in tight areas) used to scoop and dump turkey manure from a barn. Case then took this idea and applied its four-wheeled version along with its signature steam engine to begin creating Case skid steers as we know them today.
The type of machine used for each operation has to be determined through a multi-tiered process of analyzing the area of operation, terrain, necessary lifting or breakthrough capacity, and which type of attachment would most efficiently accomplish the tasks at hand. For example, while all Case skid steers provide the same general functionality, smaller models like the SR130 or the SR160 are a perfect fit for landscaping jobs, nurseries, or small agricultural endeavors. These tasks may include carrying feed in the skid steers bucket, using forks to carry a pallet loaded with plants, or using an auger to prepare a posthole or irrigation line. An equally important matter to take into consideration when buying is whether the Case skid steer is new or used, and with over 50 available models between the new and used market it can be quite a daunting task. Websites like mascus.com help potential buyers find Case skid steers and contact the owners to ensure that these machines have had proper upkeep and maintenance throughout their hours used.
Case offers some of the most powerful skid steers on the market compared to some of its major competitors such as CAT or Kubota. The current king of Case skid steers is its SV340 model. With a maximum operating load of 3,400 lbs and a 90hp engine can out-run an certainlyout-lift many of its fellow skid steers. It also maintains a stronger breakout force than well-known machines like the John Deeres 332E. The Case SV340 is commonly found in both residential and non-residential construction zones, heavy-landscaping sites, quarries, as well as in both waste and snow removal roles. The impressive 25.5 gallon diesel tank also allows Cases biggest compact piece of heavy equipment to be operated for a solid work day before having to refuel. Additionally, the list of attachments Case skid steers can utilize (buckets, forks, claws, planers, brooms, bale spears, augers, back-hoes, and more) are truly what give the these machines the ability to go all day no matter what the job.
