The WX wheeled excavators are designed to deliver a maximum of productivity and precision. The extra powerful hydraulics are managed by the Case Intelligent Hydraulic System (CIHS) control, which offers a single CPU for improved controllability and simplified diagnostics. The Case wheeled excavators use a 3-pump hydraulic system, with one pump dedicated to the slew function. This provides continuous movement and allows the operator to multifunction the controls for smooth, productive digging performance.

Case wheel excavators are equipped with Case Intelligent Swing system (CIS) allowing the operator to adjust the upper structure slew speed to suit to all working site conditions.

Two new working modes, easily switchable on the joystick, have been implemented to better adapt the machine behaviour to specific tasks: STANDARD MODE suited for general applications and precision grading with maximum fuel savings; POWER MODE for a maximised production and faster cycles.The Automatic Powerboost function delivers maximum performance for heavy breakout and lifting operations. The Power Limit Control feature monitors the engine and hydraulic pumps to optimise power output.

The flow and pressure to the attachments is easy to adjust and up to 12 settings for different attachments can be memorised
