The first sale in Europe of Case’s Stage V excavator range has been made to a long-term customer in England.
The CX90D was sold by dealer Dennis Barnfield to Civils & Construction Solutions (C&CS) to be used in its road and sewer operations. Phil Barnes, managing director at C&CS, said: “Having used CASE machines for 27 years, we were delighted to add the CX90D to our fleet – our fourth brand new machine in the last 12 months.
“We’re proud to have the first CASE machine sold in Europe with the new Stage V engine. The cooperation and help from all involved has made adjusting to the new engine regulations quick and easy, something that we have all really appreciated.”
Introduction of Stage V engines across the manufacturer’s European range has been driven by the new EU emissions standards introduced in January which dictate a new limit for particle number (PN) and a reduced limit for particle matter (PM) in the emissions from any non-road mobile machinery below 56 kW. Larger machines will need to be manufactured to meet Stage V legislation next year.
“The Yanmar Stage V engine used in the CX90D is the most powerful in the segment. As well as meeting the legislation requirements, we also deliver 20% more power with a 4.5% decrease in fuel usage,” explained Sandro Vitale, product director for general construction.
