An equipment manufacturer founded in Wisconsin, CASE offers eleven different models of wheel loader. They describe the CASE G Series thusly:
“Take control of wheel loader operation like never before. The enhanced CASE G Series wheel loaders simplify operation through a touchscreen display and give operators even greater control with adjustable electro-hydraulic controls, optimized power modes, and programmable configurable buttons near the joystick. These buttons put your most common settings and functions mere inches away from the joystick, further simplifying operation.
All while delivering — and improving — the power, productivity, and efficiency you already expect from CASE G Series wheel loaders. Extreme fuel efficiency, lower engine operating temperatures, and a no DPF/no regen emissions solution are matched with features designed to shorten cycle times, increase uptime and make you even more efficient.
An optional, factory-integrated payload system drives greater accuracy and loading efficiency in operations from quarries and job sites to feedlots and supply yards — and makes the investment/deployment in a payload system entirely turnkey (no separate financing/installation/etc.). Most importantly, you’ll reduce the wear and tear on your wheel loaders by completing cycles more efficiently, and you’ll eliminate the risk of sending trucks down the road either underloaded or overloaded.
And we’ve got your back with even greater uptime support: the SiteConnect Module helps get equipment up and running faster and allows for even greater collaboration on fleet management from CASE and your local CASE dealer.
Uptime and cycle times are completely optimized and made more efficient. That’s the CASE G Series wheel loader promise.”
Wacker Neuson sorts its wheel loaders not by size, but by function: do you want an articulated wheel loader or an all-wheel steer loader?

Our wheel loaders are true multi-talents on your construction site and exactly the right equipment to meet your requirements in many other areas.”
