Case Construction Equipment will use this year’s Bauma 2016 exhibition to unveil its new 580ST backhoe loader, featuring in-line cylinder geometry on its booms and an inner extendahoe system.

The in-line geometry on the 580ST delivers better visibility, with a narrower frame on the boom, and greater breakout forces — 55.2kN and 41N at the bucket and dipperstick, respectively — while the boom can reach a distance of 6.65m out from the swing centre.

The 580ST also retains the S-shape boom so integral to the Case backhoe, and which ensures that the effort is evenly distributed over the entire length of the boom, resulting in high stress resistance.

Customers interested in the 580St can also opt to have Case’s existing system of overlapping cylinders installed — delivering a shorter boom with a low transport height of just 3.5m — together with an outer-sliding extendahoe.

On both designs, an integrated hydraulic coupler allows the operator to change backhoe attachments at the flick of a switch in the cab.
