Case N Series Backhoes

Go Tier 4 Final

Case Construction Equipment introduces its line of Tier

4 Final backhoe loaders, including the new 580N EP –

a lower-horsepower version of the company’s 580N

backhoe that maintains the same backhoe lift capacity

and breakout force with greater fuel efficiency and a

maintenance-free Tier 4 Final solution.

All Case N Series backhoes come standard with

SiteWatch telematics, and can be outfitted with a va-

riety of industry-exclusive standards/options such as

Power Lift, Ride Control, Comfort Steer, ProControl,

Easy Flex side lights and a mechanical universal backhoe

bucket coupler that allows contractors to use attach-

ments from competitive machines on their Case backhoe.

Each machine is also available in the proven CASE

Extendahoe configuration for extended digging and reach


All CASE N Series backhoes feature the company’s over-

center design, which transfers weight to the front of the

machine for smooth roading and better traction, and al-

lows the operator to dig closer to the machine.

Controls on the N Series are simpler, with adjustable

pilot control towers, a control pattern selector and adjust-

able wrist rests. Each machine also comes standard with

Adjustable SmartClutch, which lets operators customize

the feel of forward-to-reverse transitions (smooth, moder-

ate or aggressive) to their preference.

The full range of N Series backhoes feature the SmartFit

bucket tooth system, which features heavy-duty self-sharp-

ening teeth and a hammerless fastener system for easy


The New Case 580N EP

The Case 580N EP is designed for contractors just getting

started and the rental market, with lower owning and op-

erating costs and a maintenance-free Tier 4 Final solution.

The 580N EP features particulate matter catalyst – a

combination of a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and a

high-efficiency flow-through filter that requires no fluids

and no diesel particulate filter (DPF) maintenance/upkeep.

At 74 horsepower – and with a backhoe bucket break-

out force of 11,517 pounds, backhoe lift capacity of 2,858

pounds, and peak torque of 233 foot-pounds – the lat-

est model provides ample power and performance while

still keeping fuel, maintenance, and owning and operating

costs low.

While the new model is designed to optimize efficiency

and power for price-conscious buyers, it can be outfitted

with a full selection of options for greater machine and at-

tachment flexibility.

All remaining Case N Series backhoes – the 580N, 580

Super N, 580 Super NWide Track and 590 Super N – feature

new Fiat Powertrain (FPT) engines with selective catalytic

reduction (SCR) technology to meet Tier 4 Final standards.

The system does not include a DPF or any other com-

ponents that require intensive/long-term maintenance or

regeneration. Operators who remember to top up the die-

sel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank when they refuel will notice

no additional regular maintenance activities with the new
