Case CX210C Digger Key Features

Amazing performance from an excavator that means business

One of the features that make this handy Case excavator stands out from the crowd for all the right reasons is its significant level of power. Delivering an impressive 157bhp, the Tier IV common rail engine incorporates a boost feature which can enhance the power even more when a particularly tough job requires completion. Other benefits of the Case CX 210 C include advanced hydraulic controls which give you the precision results you need for complex actions, as well as the power required for larger, heavier jobs. This machine is also designed to be fast! Quicker swings, more rapid turns and powerful torque allows operators to complete more manoeuvres in a given period of time - a major advantage if you're eager to pack in as much productivity as you can during every shift. If you want to enjoy an excavator that's light enough and small enough to work in more compact spaces, but which has the power you need to tackle formidable jobs, this is the one for you!


Ergonomic design for the cab and controls

If you're spending eight hours plus at the controls of a digger, comfort, easy intuitive operation and excellent visibility are absolute essentials. It's in the cab that the Case CX210C really begins to score some points. Visibility is better than average due to the innovative design of the cab - one window runs the length of the cab on the right-hand side, giving a good, unrestricted view of the tracks and arm. This helps operators to steer accurately, using the intuitively positioned joysticks. The joysticks are shorter than standard, leading to an easier operation and enabling operators to work for longer without feeling fatigued. Other advantages of the Case CX 210 include a fully adjustable seat, which ensures that operators of different shapes and sizes can work safely and comfortably.


Impressive, fuel-efficient, and cuts running costs

On-going running costs are always a concern for operators, as over time they can make a machine that was, at first sight, a good investment, become increasingly costly as time goes on. The Case CX210C has an exceptional level of fuel efficiency, due in part to the sophisticated hydraulic controls. These ensure that the correct amount of power is supplied, adjusting requirements minutely to ensure as little energy is wasted as possible. Another great feature is the option to choose from one of three different power modes to provide the fine adjustment needed to ensure optimal power use throughout the operation. If energy efficiency is of particular interest to your operation, why not invest in one of our green economy gauges for your CX210C? This handy gadget lets you know which settings and activities are being conducted in the most fuel-efficient way, enabling operators to make conscious decisions regarding environmentally responsible driving.


Maintenance for the Case CX210C excavator is straight-forward and extremely cost-effective

When it comes to the Case CX 210C , considerable efforts have been made to keep maintenance as fast, simple and minimal as possible. Daily service checks are performed at ground level, cutting the time required to make sure that these essential inspections take place. The excavator benefits from a tough construction and the excellent engineering and workmanship which is a hallmark of the brand. For on-going servicing and routine scheduled maintenance, attention has been given to lengthening the times between maintenance checks. This not only enables the Case CX210C to be operational for longer, it also reduces the cost of oil changes and similar tasks, as they don't need to be done so frequently.


Is the CX210C right for you?

Case benefits from a formidable reputation for dependable, powerful machines and in this, the CX210C doesn't disappoint. It really does have a significant amount of power for its size, making it a superb choice for a wide range of different applications. Another advantage of this model is its energy efficiency. Case have put considerable effort into making sure the machine can do more for less - a powerful incentive to purchase given that fuel prices are unlikely to fall anytime soon, and the green agenda continues to be at the forefront of many companies' strategic objectives.

That said, access for routine maintenance is good.
