Case Marks 40 Years of Skid Steer Production

In 2009 Case Construction Equipment celebrates 40 years of manufacturing skid-steer loaders, a highly versatile type of construction equipment that has consistently grown in popularity since its inception. The company began producing skid steers under the Case name in 1969 after acquiring the Uni-Loader line from Universal Industries.

In addition to the 40th anniversary milestone, Case is on track to manufacture its 250,000th skid steer in 2009.

“In terms of size, performance, productivity, serviceability, operator comfort and control, hydraulics and lift capacity, Case has always pushed the envelope with its skid-steer line,” said Jim Hughes, Case brand marketing manager. “From the original Case 1530 Uniloader skid steer, to the 1800 Series, the XT Series and the new 400 Series 3, you can track the evolution of features that have put Case skid steers in a class of their own.”
