CASE Construction Equipment has upgraded its N Series backhoe loaders with new loader controls, PowerBoost functionality, PowerDrive transmission with Direct Drive, and a factory-installed thumb. PowerBoost offers a momentary boost of increased hydraulic power, while PowerDrive features an automated activation of the direct drive feature in third and fourth gears. The new factory-installed hydraulic thumb aims to improve material handling performance. The loader joystick features three new switches: a declutch trigger, a roller/rocker switch and a F-N-R switch.
