CASE Construction Introduces fully electric backhoe loader

CASE Construction Equipment has introduced ” Project Zeus” the 580 EV, the construction industry’s full electric backhoe loader.

The power and performance of the 580 EV is equivalent to other diesel-powered backhoes in the CASE product line and provides considerably lower daily operating costs while also producing zero emissions.

“CASE built the very first factory-integrated backhoe loader in 1957 and has been at the forefront of backhoe innovation,” says Leandro Lecheta, Head of Construction Equipment.

The 580 EV is powered by a 480 volt, 90 kwH lithium-ion battery pack, which can be charged by any 220 volt connections. The charge will support most common eight-hour workdays.

“Two units have already been sold to utilities in the United States — NYSEG and RG&E, AVANGRID companies, and National Grid. CASE has the capability to produce additional units throughout 2020 before ramping up production to meet greater demand in following years.”
