New Holland Construction expands its compact track loader offering to include an all-new model, the C362. Also, the company has announced the launch of its economy class solution loader backhoe, the B75D.
The C362 is New Holland’s largest, most powerful track loader to date, offering power, durability and performance.
On the other hand, the new B75D loader backhoe is a more scaled-down solution, suited for operations looking for a small loader backhoe. However, according to New Holland, the B75D still offers competitive power.
C362 compact track loader
To further support customer needs, New Holland Construction launches the C362, its largest and most powerful compact track loader. With 114 gross horsepower, a rated operating capacity of 6,200 lbs., and a breakout force of 12,900 lbs.
“New Holland has never built a loader -wheel or track- this large or powerful, or with so much capacity as the new C362 compact track loader,” says Tyler Mills, Director of New Holland Construction. “This machine redefines best-in-class performance in key areas, giving you the confidence to tackle jobs you hadn’t considered before. Customers can do more and operate longer thanks to the C362’s power, strength, and stability.”
Starting from the outside, the C362’s new frame design is built with a heavy-duty steel rear door and rear hood. Bucket cylinders are mounted on the front of the boom arms to increase ingress clearance and add even more pounds of bucket breakout force.
According to New Holland, its patented Super Boom® vertical lift design optimizes the C362 for lift-and-carry operations. With greater dump reach and height, customers can easily load high-sided truck boxes or hoppers.
Full 360-degree visibility comes with the C362’s low-profile Super Boom arm and shoulder design, an integrated rear camera and new LED front work lights.
New Holland claims that operators will be able to see even more with the C362’s large glass door, lower front-door threshold and see-through area on the cab roof.
The low-profile undercarriage is designed for ease of cleanout, noise reduction and increased durability. Also, it can provide an extended track life and smoother ride due to the steel-embedded tracks rolling on the rubber instead of steel.
The in-cab 8-inch LCD display shows engine settings and performance information. The EZ EH custom screen settings allows operators access to navigation and quick operation adjustments.
The C362 is built with electro-hydraulic controls featuring multiple speed and sensitivity settings, including creep mode and automatic straight-line tracking.
Creep mode, a slow-speed option, gives the operator greater control for slow-speed operations such as trenching and cold-planing with speed thresholds of one to 100 increments.
Automatic straight-line tracking can improve productivity and precision as it keeps a straight working and traveling path in uneven terrain.
In terms of maintenance, New Holland claims that the C362 allows for easy access to the engine. The rear door and hood provide quick service entry for daily and periodic maintenance. All major service points can be accessed by tilting the cab forward.
B75D loader backhoe
The B75D boasts 74 gross horsepower, over 18 feet of maximum digging depth and standard 4WD.
“Adding the economy level B75D loader backhoe is the new solution for diverse operations,” says Ryan Anderson, construction product marketing manager, New Holland North America. “Its high-performing lift capacity, comfortable operator’s platform and outstanding digging depth will increase productivity in a wide range of work. The B75D is fit for operations needing something a bit smaller, but still looking for competitive and productive power.”
The 74-HP, the 3.4-liter FPT engine features a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) for increased fuel efficiency and faster response times.
According to New Holland, the standard 4WD and a power shuttle synchromesh transmission with four forward and four reverse gears puts the operator in complete control in nearly any job or terrain.
The operator environment of the B75D keeps safety at the forefront with a ROPS/FOPS certified canopy. Also, four front and two rear halogen work lights can keep the operation running into the night.
