About The CASE 580 Super N Wide Track:
With a more powerful engine and at nearly 102 inches wide, the 110-hp 580 Super N Wide Track takes our most popular backhoe loader to a whole new level. It provides greater strength and stability, and houses a spacious, upgraded cab with intuitive fingertip controls. More high-performance features that contractors want come standard, including the responsive PowerDrive transmission, fierce PowerBoost function, fuel-saving ECO Mode, ProControl and SiteWatch™ Telematics. It can also be configured with Comfort Steer for truck-loading tasks, selectable Auto-Ride Control and more.
Not only does this wide track model provide better flotation, lower ground pressure and enhanced stability, it packs more power with bucket breakout of over 15,000 lb., the N Series’ highest full-height loader lifting capacity of 8,425 lb. and a backhoe lifting capacity of 3,761 lb. (w/PowerLift). A revamped PowerDrive direct-drive 6-speed transmission with limited-slip front differential gives greater acceleration and gradeability, and at the touch of a button, PowerBoost provides a burst of increased digging force.
Other high-performance features include the boom-swinging precision of ProControl, a speed-selectable Auto-Ride Control, Comfort Steer to save time during loading or stockpiling work, a universal backhoe coupler, factory-installed thumb and SiteWatch Telematics to monitor and maximize your machine’s productivity.
Common-Sense Fuel Efficiency
The 580 Super N WT is counted on for its strength, so it needs as much power as it can get. That’s why the Tier 4 Final FPT engine uses SCR-only technology (Selective Catalytic Reduction) to meet emission regulations. As an after-treatment system, SCR lets the engine breathe easier and run at peak performance, and there’s no excess fuel burn for regeneration. Simply add DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) at fill-up. Other fuel-saving standard features include ECO Mode, engine Auto-Idle and Auto-Off, which can have their timing adjusted to your preference.
CASE Comfort & Visibility
Cab options keep operators comfortable with a hands-free Bluetooth radio, USB input, premium hand-stitched seat with heat and lumbar support, and more. A low-profile hood allows for greater sightlines to the loader bucket and cabs have floor-to-ceiling windows and opening rear-quarter windows for exceptional visibility, airflow and communication. Backhoe pilot controls and armrests are fully adjustable and loader joysticks feature fingertip controls for intuitive functions such as self-leveling, return-to-dig as well as an FNR switch on PowerDrive models so operators can quickly shift directions without letting go of the steering wheel. An LED light package is also available for enhanced nighttime visibility with lower power drain.
On the 580SN WT, you can check engine oil, transmission fluid or coolant, and fill-up the fuel and DEF tank, all from one ground-level spot. Swing-out coolers and a flip-up hood provide easy service access to vital systems, and the Extendahoe® has externally adjustable wear pads for tightening dipper tolerances using simple tools – no shop necessary. Standard battery disconnect and jumpstart terminals provide added security and convenient access, and with SCR, there’s no particulate filter to maintain.
