pump that delivers 28. 5 gpm. The
pump output is controlled by an open
center valve system from Husco.
Pullen noted the machine boosts
productivity and efficiency by retaining more material during the dump
cycle in a couple of ways, including through the loader design. “As
you’re raising the loader arms up,
the bucket adjusts itself, actually tilting out so the heaped soil is always
staying straight up, stopping it from
pouring out or spilling back on the
operator,” she said.
Productivity can also be enhanced
by an optional ride control system,
which is designed to help cushion
operators and material.
“The ride control system is becoming
more and more popular as an option,”
Pullen said. “It’s available now all the
way down to skid steers and the more
we’re seeing it across the board on
machines, the higher take rate we’re
starting to see because customers are
starting to realize it really does improve
the operator’s comfort. And it increases
productivity by keeping more material
in the bucket.”
The Case 570N XT has an operat-
ing weight of 12,898 lb., bucket break-
out force of 9271 lb. and hinge pin
height of 11 ft. 3 in. It has a lift capacity
at full height of 6537 lb. An optional
hydraulic quick coupler designed to
easily connect and disengage buckets
and other attachments is available for
the front loader. An optional hydraulic
power take-off and dual tilt on the
box blade provide more versatility and
ditching capabilities, Case said.
Pullen said the 570N XT simplifies
maintenance through several design
features, including a no-tool forward-tilting hood, vertical spin-on filters and
grouped, ground-level service checks
that streamline engine access.
She also pointed to the improvements made to the rear axle design.
On the new model, the brakes are on
the outer portion of the three-piece
axle. Both the front and rear axles are
supplied by Carraro.
“The brake discs are much larger
than they would be if they were
internally mounted in the center of
the axle, so they last a lot longer,”
she said. “Also, you don’t need to
drop the whole axle just to service
The 570N XT is manufactured at the
company’s Burlington, Iowa, facility and
is available through Case dealers. dp
