CASE Construction Equipment introduced the 4-wheel drive W9 in 1958, the company offers a full range of compact and full-sized wheel loaders for all applications, from road building to recycling centers, from urban construction to quarries. CASE celebrates the 60th anniversary of its wheel loaders with a dedicated display at Intermat 2018. CASE Construction Equipment celebrates this year its 60th anniversary of wheel loader production, which started with the W9, the first CASE integrated four-wheel drive wheel loader introduced in 1958. The W10 and W12 four-wheel drive models and the front-drive W5 loader soon followed. The W series grew through the 1960s and 1970s, including the mammoth 15-ton W26, introduced in 1968. It was CASE’s first articulated loader and the largest wheel loader offered at the time. The W series loaders all featured cabs mounted on the front half of the machine. With the introduction of Model 621 in 1987, the entire CASE loader line graduated into the 21 Series, a more rugged design that featured modern rear-mounted cabs. The 21 Series models were developed under a new streamlined, cross-functional, concurrent process that became the guide for the rest of the company as it moved into the 21st century.
