The Melbourne-based Earthtrak relies on the Case CX300C excavator to
handle a diverse range of earthmoving and construction jobs with the assurance
of high productivity, low downtime and easy maintenance.
These excavators from CASE Construction Equipment have been delivering
excellent performance on residential excavation sites as well as highway and
street construction work for the earthmoving company.
For Earthtrak business partners and owners Jay Sbisa and Craig Watson,
the Case CX300C excavator ticks all the boxes for maintenance, productivity and
performance. Based in Hallam on Melbourne’s eastern outskirts, and working in
earthmoving for a combined 40 years, Jay and Craig take up diverse jobs from
construction, golf courses, ovals, land rehabilitation, new Greenfield sites
and existing cemeteries to a range of bulk earthworks contracts.
Given their versatile workload, the partners need a range of versatile
machines to handle their ever-changing workload, one of the many reasons why
Earthtrak has used a number of Case CX300C excavators over the years.
According to Jay, the Case CX300C excavator is used for several jobs and
sites including bulk loading of dump trucks, removal of vegetation and many
other general earthmoving duties. For instance, they are currently working on a
massive cemetery site providing bulk earthmoving as well as some civil
construction services, where their Case CX300C excavator is really showing off
its true colours.
Jay describes the Case CX300C excavator as reliable, comfortable, tough
and easy to use. Advanced technologies such as the unique CASE Intelligent
Hydraulic System that helps manage the engine and hydraulics, optimise power
and efficiency in the CX300C. Performance is also maximised with a six per cent
greater lift capacity and a three per cent faster cycle time, allowing
operators to fill up more trucks in every shift.
Jay and his team confirm the high comfort factor in the excavator’s cab
design, which features increased space, improved airflow and air conditioning. According
to Jay, an operator can work in the cabin for up to eight hours a day. Aligned
with worksite safety requirements, the automotive level sound dampening is
capped at 71dB and achieved via the use of best-in-class soundproofing, while
real time images from the rear of the swing house are visible on the 7-inch
control monitor display.
Key advantages of the Case CX300C excavator also include fuel economy, thanks
to the Tier 4 CEGR technology, which is matched with the Intelligent Hydraulic
System that delivers fuel consumption savings of up to 15 per cent versus other
configurations; and simple maintenance with the Case EMS (Easy Maintenance
System) that uses stratified bushings and plated pins to hold grease longer,
preventing rattling, and lengthening the time between service intervals.
Maintenance is further simplified with wide-open panels provided for
easy access to service points, ground level access to grouped lubrication
points, quick-change filters and simple gauges for daily service checks.
Earthtrak focusses on providing the best service and excellent value for
money to customers, which is why Craig and Jay will continue to use the Case
CX300C excavator for many more years to come.
The great performance of the Case CX300C excavator is backed by the
outstanding service they receive from their local Case dealer, Case Victoria.
