Case 885B series motor graders, available locally from Case Construction SA, have the latest technological and design features for improved performance and enhanced productivity.
“Enhancements to this range include the flexibility of a torque converter lock-up system for efficient transmission, a roll-away mouldboard plough for lower fuel consumption and a re-designed cab, with a larger field of vision for enhanced safety and greater operator comfort,” says Ross Collard, managing director of Case Construction SA, part of the Capital Equipment Group (CEG) of Invicta Holdings Limited.
These 885B series graders have low fuel consumption, turbocharged, high performance Common Rail Tier 3 engines.
Case offers the ZF transmission, with a torque converter lock-up system, that provides an increase in torque of up to 70%. This feature is suitable for heavy tasks requiring extra traction and can be locked for less demanding work.
When lock-up is engaged, the transmission operates in direct-drive mode, with electronic shift change for the six forward and three reverse gears. This mode, with increased fuel efficiency, does not require extra torque and is, therefore, ideal for levelling and spreading.
When lock-up is disengaged by the operator at the push of a button, the transmission reverts back to working with the torque converter.
Lock-up engages automatically to match torque and engine speed, as long as the pre-set electronic transmission module parameters are met.
