Two new models of Construction King backhoe loaders from Case offer side-shift capabilities, allowing operators to move the boom left or right to work more efficiently parallel to walls or around obstacles. The new 97-horsepower 580SV Construction King side-shift and the larger, 110-horsepower Case 695SV side-shift, as well as a 695SV center-pivot model, are now available in addition to the company’s N Series lineup.

The new machines carry over many popular features from the N Series, including ProControl swing dampening, auto ride control and ECO modes for fuel savings, and bring significant upgrades to maneuverability, says the company.

“The new side-shift models take the legendary Case Construction King capabilities to new frontiers, putting them smack dab into confined spaces and up next to structures,” says George MacIntyre, product manager – backhoe loaders. “With a hydraulic side-shift boom and vertical outriggers, these machines can get more done in tight spaces. They also let operators dig rectangular trenches without having to reposition.”

The 580SV features a tool carrier design that aims to improve stability and material retention, while its side-shift configuration and narrow width make for more productive work in confined spaces. For bigger jobs, the 695SV side-shift and center-pivot models feature a tool carrier loader arm, allowing them to do double duty as a wheel loader.

Both 695SV models are equipped with 4WD, four-wheel steer, four equal-sized tires, and include a PowerShift transmission. The expanded Case backhoe offering is also compatible with numerous attachments, giving crews a big toolkit to handle highly varied jobs.
