Case/Ram Laramie tractor

by David Zatz on


CASE Construction Equipment unveiled a Ram Laramie Longhorn-inspired 580 Super N Wide Track backhoe loader at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014. The backhoe is a one-off concept, and will tour the country at Ram- and CASE-sponsored events with a new Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn Crew Cab 4×4 truck. The machine has a cab to match the Ram Laramie Longhorn interior, and  chrome detailing and badges to give the backhoe the distinctive Ram appearance.

The 580 Super N Wide Track’s diesel burns cleanly and efficiently, with the company claiming to outlift competitive backhoes by up to 39% at low RPMs, with increases in breakout force, lift and reach when compared to previous models.


The Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn is among the most luxurious and most powerful pickup trucks ever produced by the Ram Truck brand. The truck claims a 30,000-pound trailer capacity thanks to a class-exclusive 50,000 pounds-per-square-inch high-strength steel frame, upgraded Cummins engine with a best-in-class 850 foot-pounds of torque, and other driveline upgrades. The Ram 3500’s Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) (the maximum combined weight of the truck, payload, and trailer) has been raised to 37,600 pounds, which surpasses the closest competitor’s 30,500-pound GCWR.

Case is a brand of CNH, a sister company to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
