CASE Construction Equipment has introduced the SV340 skid steer. It’s rated at 3,400 pounds operating capacity and it features a bucket breakout force of 9,531 pounds. The vertical-lift model provides power and performance, along with a strong lift arm, H-link and upper chassis.
The machine also offers optional high-flow (38.7 gpm at 3,450 psi) and high-flow (35 gpm at 4,000 psi) auxiliary hydraulics for good power and attachment versatility. Additional enhancements have also been made to manifold valves, the gear pump and the auxiliary loader circuit to allow for added power and performance.
The unit’s added operating performance – along with new heavy-duty 14 x 17.5 tires and additional counterweights – makes the SV340 a good operating platform for advanced attachments such as cold planers, tree spades and stump grinders. The skid steer is compatible with more than 250 attachments, including the new CASE sectional snow pushes, buckets, forks, brooms, rakes and more.
A 90-horsepower FPT engine with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology powers the machine. SCR eliminates the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF), and the associated downtime of other systems that require regeneration. It also allows the engine to run cooler and with greater fuel efficiency as fuel is not used to burn off collected particulate.
The SV340 features EZ-EH (electro-hydraulic) controls that provide nine adjustable speed and control sensitivity settings that can be adjusted on the fly. This allows the operator to quickly switch between personalized settings for speed and control, and to tailor machine performance to the application. A single rocker switch allows operators to switch between the CASE “H” operating pattern and ISO pattern controls for jobsites where numerous operators with different operating preferences are working. The skid steer also features push-button Ride Control, which cushions loader arm movement for a smooth ride and greater material retention.
CASE Construction Equipment sells and supports a line of construction equipment around the world, including backhoe loaders, excavators, motor graders, wheel loaders, vibratory compaction rollers, crawler dozers, skid steers, compact track loaders and rough-terrain forklifts.
