Case will be showing 34 machines at Bauma. Many are new to Germany and three XT model skid-steer excavators are being shown for the first time. The principal entirely new products will be attachments available initially for skid steer loaders and the recently introduced range of mini excavators.

Backhoe loaders will be a major feature. Better braking, stability and installation of low emission engines in some models are typical of the continuous rather than radical changes being announced in Munich.

Recent commercial changes could have a far reaching effect on the backhoe and crawler excavator market. In January Case bought a 50% interest in Sumitomos US subsidiary Link-Belt which manufactures excavators and cranes. And the Japanese company and Case have formed a global alliance to manufacture hydraulic crawler excavators.
