Case Construction Equipment will introduce the Case Minotaur DL550 compact dozer loader at Equip Expo.

“The Minotaur is truly a fleet of one, that is second to none,” said Jeff Jacobsmeyer, product manager, Case. “Business owners and fleet managers looking for a compact solution that delivers countless benefits in a single footprint will immediately see the versatility this exciting new machine brings to their fleets and will quickly understand what a ‘compact dozer loader’ is capable of accomplishing.”

Highlights of the new machine include:

  • The chassis-integrated C-frame with a six-way dozer blade. The C-frame hydraulically couples into both the chassis of the machine, as well as the attachment coupler.  
  • Case Universal Machine Control makes the machine ready for any of the major three providers of machine control technology, which are sold separately. The machine is also available with an optional, fully integrated ripper for tearing up tough terrain to simplify dozing and earthmoving operations. 
  • The C-frame can detatch to allow the operator to use it as a loader with a heavy-duty 1.25-cubic-yard bucket or with hundreds of common loader attachments.
  • The machine is built on a dozer-style undercarriage and features 25,000 pounds of drawbar pull.
  • It's available with three different track options to meet operator preference and jobsite profiles: 14-inch single-grouser steel tracks; 18-inch triple-grouser steel tracks; and 17.7-inch rubber tracks.
  • The 90- or 96-inch six-way blade connected to the integrated C-frame gives the operator a full range of dozer controls and movements.
  • The machine’s electrohydraulic controls also deliver responsiveness like full-sized Case dozers, with the ability to adjust blade, steering and shuttle sensitivity to smooth, moderate or aggressive to meet the operator’s preference. Blade responsiveness can be further dialed in to operator preference by independently setting the speed of the blade tilt, lift and angle.   
  • Case Universal Machine Control provides universal harnesses and brackets to integrate machine control solutions from any of the big three providers of precision construction solutions—Leica Geosystems, Topcon and Trimble, allowing equipment owners to add the machine to their fleet with the confidence it can be integrated directly into preferred/existing machine control ecosystems.
  • In its loader configuration, the Case Minotaur DL550 features a 5,500-pound rated operating capacity (50 percent of tipping load) with 12,907 pounds of breakout force.
  • It features a vertical lift pattern and operates in the ISO control pattern.
  • It includes advanced electro-hydraulic control capabilities where operators can easily dial in total machine responsiveness to low, moderate or aggressive; or independently set tilt, lift and drive speed, as well as loader arm and drive control to best meet the demands of the work.
  • Minotaur’s enhanced high-flow hydraulics can deliver up to 41.6 GPM at 4,100 psi via the ¾-inch hydraulic quick couplers.   
  • The machine also allows operators to harness all that power with “Hydraulics on Demand”, where the operator can easily select the percentage of auxiliary hydraulic flow to the attachment via the machine’s multi-function display. This allows the operator to dial in attachment performance to their preference or the recommendation of the attachment manufacturer — ensuring both effective and proper operation of the attachment.
  • It includes Case SiteConnect Module, a device that improves the volume, flow and integration of data to the Case SiteWatch telematics platform for real-time monitoring and management of maintenance and service intervals, as well as the analysis of equipment utilization and performance. 
  • Service intervals and machine operating information are easily accessed in the machine’s eight-inch LCD display in the cab.
