CASE’s D Series Excavators


CASE Construction Equipment recently introduced the all-new CX145D SR minimum-swing radius excavator to its D Series lineup. Designed to provide ample digging and lifting power in a small footprint, the CX145D SR features a compact counterweight and modified boom placement. This results in a highly maneuverable and powerful excavator that is easy to transport and ideal for restricted jobsite conditions, such as road and bridge work, utilities, urban construction and landscaping applications.

With an operating weight of 32,100 pounds and a 102 HP Tier 4 Final engine, the CX145D SR offers bucket digging forces up to 21,400-foot-pounds and lift capacities up to 21,350-pounds. Options include a dozer blade configuration as well as the choice between either steel or rubber tracks depending on operating conditions and jobsite requirements.

Each D Series model is built to provide significant operational gains, including faster cycle times, improved responsiveness and greater fuel efficiency. An electronically controlled hydraulic pump and larger control and solenoid valves increase lifting capacities and improve responsiveness.


Designed to provide increased digging and lifting power in confined work areas, the CX245D SR features a compact counterweight and modified boom placement that minimizes the machine’s footprint, resulting in a highly productive and maneuverable excavator that’s ideal for restricted conditions, such as road and bridge work, residential projects and urban construction.

With an operating weight of 60,400-pounds and a 160 hp Tier 4 Final engine, the CX245D SR offers increased bucket digging forces (up to 34,600-pounds) and lift capacity (up to 22,950-pounds) compared to the previous model.


The all new CX750D, the largest and most powerful machine in the CASE excavator line. Operating at a best in class 512 horsepower, the CX750D is available in standard and “mass excavation” configurations. The mass excavation configuration features a shorter boom and arm that allow for greater breakout forces and faster cycle times, and is capable of handling larger buckets for added capacity.

  • CX750D: 158,300-pounds; 75,090-pound digging force (with Power Boost).
  • CX750D ME: 159,600-pounds; 75,090-pound digging force (with Power Boost)

Like all D Series excavators, the CX750D has been built to achieve faster cycle times, improved control/responsiveness and greater fuel efficiency. An electronically controlled hydraulic pump and larger control and solenoid valves boost breakout forces, increase lifting strength and improve responsiveness. These features combine with the CASE Intelligent Hydraulic System and its four integrated control systems to make the best use of the machine’s hydraulic power and momentum, resulting in added strength and fuel efficiency.

The boom and arm, as well as the undercarriage, are all more robust to allow for greater power and productivity, and arm and bucket cylinders are larger to help improve performance. And the machine can be operated in one of three operating modes — Automatic, Heavy and Speed Priority — to provide the optimal and most efficient use of hydraulic and engine power.

It features a larger, more spacious cab than previous CASE machines in this size class, and offers a fully adjustable workstation with a new high back seat for optimal comfort and support. Standard rear and side view cameras feed a 7-inch widescreen monitor that also provides operators with real time access to important performance parameters, including fuel consumption, operating hours and machine information.

Maintenance and access to the machine are now made easier with wider catwalks and new guardrails for safety, and all filters are grouped in the pump compartment for simplicity. A new standard hydrostatic reversible fan responds to actual cooling demands and reduces power absorption and maintenance.

Greater feature standardization

D Series models offer more standard features than previous CASE crawler excavators, simplifying the buying process and making them extremely versatile and operator friendly.

This includes Free Swing for improved craning, laying or lifting of offset loads; oil sample ports for quick sampling of engine and hydraulic oils; and an easy pattern selector for the operator’s preference of ISO or SAE controls. Each D Series machine features a fully adjustable operator station anchored by a standard heated air ride seat and joystick controls that allow for smooth performance.

All CASE D Series excavators provide peace of mind and lower total cost of ownership through CASE ProCare™.

New Lighting Package

Each D Series machine is available with a new (optional) LED working light package that provides illumination than three-times brighter than halogen, allowing contractors to work around the clock. The LED package includes six LED lights (two front, two rear and one on each side).

CASE ProCare

All CASE D Series excavators are covered under CASE ProCare — a suite of product assurances that includes a three-year Advanced CASE SiteWatch™ telematics subscription, a three-year/3,000-hour full-machine factory warranty, and a three-year/3,000-hour planned maintenance contract. ProCare allows business owners to invest in new equipment while helping to make owning and operating costs predictable for the first three years of lease or ownership.
