CASE Construction Equipment has scooped a top design award for its G-Series wheel loaders.

The manufacturer picked up the Good Design Award in the industrial category from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.

Case said the latest generation of the brand’s range, which introduced a windscreen design, “raised the bar” on operator comfort when it was launched last year.

This recognition comes in the 50th year of the award.

Carl Gustaf Göransson, brand president for CNH Industrial’s construction equipment businesses said, “We have been judged against the very best in the world and the G-Series has emerged as a winner: this prestigious accolade crowns Case wheel loaders’ long history of excellence as we prepare to celebrate this product line’s 60th Anniversary.”

Case said the cabin of the G-Series wheel loaders “sets new standards” in comfort and safety, with every element designed to provide an “automotive feel with industrial performance”.

The one-piece windshield is described as offering an unobstructed panoramic view to the front, while “multiple rear view convex mirrors, rear view display, slim engine hood and rear grid defroster offer excellent rear visibility”.

The cabin interior has been designed to maximise operator space.
