Case 480D Backhoe Loader

The Case 480D backhoe loader was manufactured from 1980 to 1987. The components of Case 480D driveline system: J.I. Case G188D 4-cylinder liquid-cooled diesel engine, and 4x4 Power Shuttle partially synchronized transmission with single stage torque converter.

A 188 cubic inches (3.1 L) engine has a cylinder bore of 3.81" (97 mm), piston stroke of 4.13" (105 mm), and rated power of 52 hp (38.8 kW). The max forward speed - 20.9 mph (33.6 kph), a max reverse speed - 18.2 mph (29.3 kph).

The open center hydraulic system includes a gear pump with fluid flow rate of 23.9 gpm (90.8 lpm). The hydraulic pressure is 2200 psi (150 bar). The Case 480D backhoe loader was equipped with a hydrostatic power steering system, hydraulic band and disc brakes, 7.50x16 or 8.00x16 front tires, and 14.9x24 or 16.9x24 rear tires. The wheel base is 80 in (2030 mm).

The loader’s max lift height is 127.5 in (3230 mm) at pin and clearance with bucket dumped is 102.5 in (2600 mm). The lifting capacity is 3000 lbs (1360 kg) at max. height (bucket pin), and a breakout force (bucket on ground) is 5700 lbs (2585 kg). The raising time is 3.7 sec from ground level to max height, and bucket dumping time is 3 seconds. The loader is compatible with a 64 in (1620 mm) long lip bucket, or 74 in (1870 mm) and 82 in (2075 mm) short lip buckets.

The backhoe can dig to maximum depth of 144 in (3650 mm) for standard backhoe and 145.8 in (3700 mm) for extendahoe. The backhoe has a digging force of 4510 lbs (2045 kg) for dipper cylinder or 4605 lbs (2090 kg) for dipper extension cylinder, and 7750 lbs (3515 kg) for extendahoe bucket cylinder. The reach from swing pivot at ground line is 224.2 in (5690 mm) for extendahoe. The backhoe is available with a 12", 18", 24", 30" and 36" buckets.
