See (and Hear) the World's First Fully Electric Backhoe Loader

The crowd did NOT hear the "roar of the engine" when CASE started up the 580 EV, a "typical day of work" during a live demo at CONEXPO 2020. A separate electric motor powers the hydraulics with another motor powering the transmission. This is not just a concept machine, CASE has already sold two production models. Developed as Project Zeus, it gets its power from a 480-volt, 90 kWh lithium ion battery pack. Product Marketing Manager Ed Brenton walks through some the benefits including no smoke & noise, less daily maintenance, and capacities equivalent to diesel. Michelin CrossGrip tires that have a non-directional tread pattern and low rolling resistance.and instantaneous peak torque with an intuitive interface are just a few of the features.
