Case 580L Backhoe Loader

The Case 580L is a 2WD or 4WD backhoe loader. This model was manufactured from 1996 to 2003. The Case 580L drivetrain consists of a 239.3 cu.in (3.9L) Case 4-390 4-cylinder direct injection naturally aspirated liquid-cooled diesel engine with a rated power of 75 hp (55.5 kW), and fully synchronised shuttle transmission with 4 forward and 4 reverse gear.

The max travel speed (forward/reverse): 25.5 mph (40.8 km/h) and 30.8 mph (49.3 km/h). The open center hydraulic system used a positive displacement gear type pump with a flow rate of 28.5 gpm (108.3 lpm).

The hydraulic pressure is 207 bar (3000 psi). The Case 580L backhoe loader was equipped with a hydrostatic power steering, wet disc brakes, 11Lx16 (2WD) or 12x16.5 (4WD) front tires, and 17.5Lx24 (2WD) or 19.5Lx24 (4WD) rear tires. The wheelbase is 84" (2130 mm) for models with 2-wheel drive, and 84.5" (2145 mm) for models with 4-wheel drive.

The front end loader has a lifting capacity (at pin) of 5293 lbs (2406 kg) to full height of 134" (3405 mm) and boom breakout force of 7955 lbs (3615 kg). The bucket dump clearance with a 46-degree maximum dump angle is 104" (2640 mm). The front-end loader is compatible with a 82" (2080 mm) standard material bucket with a rated capacity of 28.1 cu.ft (0.80 cu.m).

The standard backhoe operational data includes a bucket dig force of 10976 lbs (4990 kg) and dipper arm dig force of 7049 lbs (3205 kg). The max digging depth is 14 ft 3 in (4343 mm), and overall reach from swing pivot is 17 ft 10 in (5435 mm) at ground line. The backhoe is equipped with 12, 16", 18", 24", 30", or 36" buckets.
