Case Construction Produces Armored Heavy Equipment for Military

Case Construction Equipment has produced the first 50 armored backhoe loaders for the U.S. Army, with another 150 in production. In addition to the armor, the backhoes feature interchangeable exterior cab panels, cooling systems for hot climates, as well as the Visibility Improvement Package, which includes 4 external cameras and 3 internal monitors to provide ground level vision for the operator.

Having provided service to the U.S. military for over 150 years, Case is the first heavy equipment manufacturer to incorporate armor and install camera systems to machines during production. Case has also reached contracts to provide skid steer loaders, compact track loaders, wheel loaders, and forklifts for the U.S. military.
