Skid steers with bags of new tricks

A NEW range of skid steers from the Case camp made their appearance at SED. The 85XT, 90XT and 95XT – the 85X rated at 77hp and the larger two at 85hp.

Hydrostatic transmissions are employed with a chain-driven independent drive system on each side of the machine.

Lift capacity to a full height of 3m for the 85X is 1043kg, with the 90XT and 95XT lifting 1089kg and 1361kg to heights of 3.16m and 3.18m respectively.

Features include a tipping cab to provide access to the engine and transmission for servicing needs, use of a safety bar which actuates a hydraulic lockout and engages the parking brake, and a manual quick-coupler system for a vast range of attachments.

New at SED from Case – the 85XT, 90XT and 95XT skid steers.
