NAMPO 2022 | Proud of our past. Focused on our future.
CASE Construction Equipment hosted a stand dedicated to its advanced equipment and proudly celebrated the brand’s 180th anniversary at NAMPO South Africa.
At NAMPO 2022 Harvest Day held outside Bothaville, South Africa, the CASE brand had the opportunity to host an entire stand to showcase its industry leading equipment. This was also the first time that CASE hosted its own stand, following the acquisition of its South African distributors to strengthen its local presence.
The 570T and 570ST are the brand’s leading products, featuring the powerful S8000 engine, outstanding performance and fast response time. The CASE excavator range was represented by a 22-ton CX220C LC Heavy Duty excavator, powered by a highly fuel – efficient engine. The 821F front-end loader on display delivers best-in-class horsepower and massive torque, which combined with the strong and fast hydraulics, result in exceptional productivity and performance. The 885B Grader, with its unique mouldboard design, fuel-efficient, turbocharged engine, and rear-mounted cab, delivers high-productivity, high-precision performance, and excellent operator comfort. Two skid steer loaders, the SR150 and SR200, completed the product exhibit, known for their power and productivity and outstanding comfort and visibility in the spacious cab with ample glazed areas.
This year also marks an important milestone for CASE – 180 years of pioneering technologies and innovations that have changed the industry and earned the trust of businesses across the world. The brand commemorated its enviable legacy with an informative panel outlining key milestones and innovations in its illustrious history under the theme “Proud of our past. Focused on our future.”
