Case Construction Equipment adds compact wheeled loader to zero-emission line-up

Case Construction Equipment has unveiled the 12EV, an electric compact wheel loader. The electric compact wheel loader is said to be suitable for operating in restricted areas, residential construction, tunnelling, and sensitive environments such as agriculture, horticulture, urban construction, and areas that require quiet operation, like residential buildings, hospitals, and night-time operations.

Case Construction Equipment says that the 12EV offers comparable or improved performance compared to a diesel model of the same size.

Weighing 3.8 tonnes, the loader features as much power as its diesel counterpart and is equipped with a 23kWh cobalt-free lithium-ion battery pack, enabling a payload with pallet forks of 1.15 tonnes. 

The 23kWh battery provides the 12EV with three to six hours of operating autonomy, depending on the application. It comes with a standard 230V charger, which can replenish the battery overnight, or an optional 400V fast charger that takes just one hour to charge the battery from 20% to 80%.

A 17kW motor delivers drive to the axles, while a 22kW motor powers the hydraulic system for the loader arms and bucket cylinder. It offers three drive modes – Energy Saving, Standard, and Power – allowing the operator to match the machine to the task at hand to prolong battery life. A fourth operating mode allows the operator to customise the response and tailor the energy consumption to the actual job site.

The 12EV is the third production battery electric model from Case Construction Equipment, following the introduction of the CX15EV and the CX25EV mini excavators. Weighing 1.5 and 2.5 tonnes, respectively, these compact excavators are powered by 21.5kWh and 32.3kWh battery packs, enabling full shift autonomous running.

The CX15EV uses an 11kW motor, while the larger machine has a 25kW rated output. These motors drive a low-noise helical gear pump and a load-sensing hydraulic system in the smaller model, while the heavier mini excavator uses a single load-sensing variable displacement pump. Both models feature a three-mode control system, offering Eco, Standard, and Power settings.

With an external three-phase 380V rapid charger, it is possible to recharge in around 1.5 hours. Using a conventional 230V domestic supply, the recharge time is around 9 hours. In all other respects, the CX15EV and the CX25EV are the same to operate as the latest D-Series CASE mini excavators.
