CASE Launches New SR270 and SV300: The Industry's First Tier 4 Final Skid Steer Models with SCR Technology

CASE SV300 Skid Steer
SR270 becomes industry's largest radial-lift skid steer: new models feature best-in-class breakout force, torque, hydraulic flow and 360-degree visibility; no costly DPF to maintain; industry exclusives include standard heavy-duty front and side lighting, control handle detents to give the operator greater control and responsiveness.

CASE Construction Equipment became the first manufacturer to offer skid steer loaders with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology with the introduction of the SR270 radial-lift skid steer and the SV300 vertical-lift skid steer. The brand new SR270 becomes the industry's largest radial lift skid steer with a rated operating capacity of 2,700 pounds at 90 horsepower. The new Tier 4 Final models feature best-in-class torque, breakout force and standard auxiliary hydraulic flow, as well as the industry's widest cab with best-in-class 360-degree visibility.

The SCR engine technology found in both machines is a result of years of emissions reduction expertise by Fiat Powertrain Technologies (also a CNH Industrial company). Having proven itself in on-road trucking applications, and expanding into heavy earthmoving and agricultural applications, the technology has evolved to prove beneficial in even smaller engine ranges, such as skid steers.

"Owners and operators who get in the habit of topping off their diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank when they refuel will notice that there's no additional attention required – it's that easy," says Warren Anderson, brand marketing manager, CASE Construction Equipment. "There are no daily or intensive maintenance efforts required by the new technology, no diesel particulate filter to maintain or replace – and owners will notice a more efficient use of the machine's engine."

The new skid steers weigh in at 8,117 (SR270) and 8,655 (SV300) pounds, deliver best-in-class torque of 282 foot-pounds and bucket breakout force up to 8,776 pounds. Rated at 90 gross horsepower, the machines include standard (24.2 gallons-per-minute (gpm)) and high-flow auxiliary (37.6 gpm) hydraulics for excellent power and attachment versatility. A 25.5-gallon fuel tank extends runtimes and ensures that the machine can work the entire day without refueling.
