CASE Construction Equipment, a brand of CNH Industrial, has launched its much-awaited CX220C crawler excavator in the Indian market. With the introduction of this new product, the brand has further strengthened its leading position in the country’s construction industry. The excavator is made in India at CASE’s state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Pithampur (Madhya Pradesh).
Especially designed for the toughest applications, the machine is equipped with FPT Industrial engine to ensure high productivity with low fuel consumption. It is ideally suited for stone quarries, road works, general construction and earthworks. The product will be commercialised in the Indian sub-continent and across Asian and African markets from the launch.
“CASE India embarks on a new journey with its Made in India excavator. With the launch of our new product today, we have expanded our offering to include the largest segment in the Indian equipment market.

Speaking at the launch, Sandeep Mathur, Brand Leader, CASE India said, “At CASE India, we have always endeavoured to provide innovative machines and the new CX220C excavator is another step in this direction. With our range of compactors, graders, backhoe loaders and dozers, we are already in a strong position in the construction segment and the new excavator will help to consolidate CASE India’s competitiveness in the crawler excavator segment as well.”
The CX220C crawler excavator is specifically designed for tough applications. It is a machine built for Indian terrain and delivers maximum productivity with lower fuel costs and faster cycle times. Having an operating weight of 22 tonne and equipped with a new 6-cylinder fuel-efficient electronically controlled FPT Industrial engine, the new excavator delivers gross power of 117 kW (157 hp) and peak torque of 622 Nm at 1,800 rpm. Additionally, the excavator features five energy saving controls and ECO gauge function which enables continuous fuel consumption monitoring to help reduce fuel costs.
The robust design with 33 per cent stronger heavy-duty arm, boom and undercarriage structures improves the machine’s durability. The design also facilitates easy maintenance from ground level for user comfort and faster service times. It features the CASE Intelligent Hydraulic System (CIHS), which provides machine control with power and fuel savings across all cycle phases. The excavator comes with three power modes: Auto, Heavy and Super. Operators can also store up to 10 auxiliary hydraulic flow and pressure settings to easily switch between different attachments with no need for any mechanical adjustment. This customised operation renders the machine highly versatile while maintaining power output. The CX 220C is equipped with CASE India’s Telematics system for real time updates.
The brand has also announced a rental service for its customers who want to try the equipment for a short period of time before purchase.
