Terex 860 vs Case 580 comparison

The Terex 860 and Case 580 backhoe loaders are 4x4 2-axle 4x4 machines designed for a wide range of excavation and industrial applications. They are used in various fields: from construction and municipal services, to work in quarries and at industrial facilities.

Both machines have comparable technical characteristics and functionality, and are highly popular in the domestic market. Due to their balanced characteristics and relatively low cost, they are considered one of the best solutions in their class.

Features and differences between Terex 860 and Case 580 backhoe loaders

Considering both models of backhoe loaders, it is worth noting that the Case 580 is the development of a French brand (a full-fledged model in the line since 2000). Terex 860 is a classic American, which is produced at a Russian plant, has several modifications designed to perform specialized tasks.

Comparison of Terex 860 and Case 580 engines and transmissions

The Case 580 wheel excavator-loader is equipped with a powerful four-cylinder, 4, 4 liter diesel engine, rated power 97 h.p. (71 kW), with a torque of 1400 rpm. The engine works in conjunction with an automatic Powershuttle transmission, which has 6 or 8 gears (depending on the configuration).

The American Terex 860 is powered by a Perkins turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine. It has a volume of 4.4 liters and a rated power of 101 h.p. (74.5 kW), with a base speed of 1400 rpm. Works in conjunction with a hydromechanical transmission, four forward and four reverse gears.

Comparison of dimensions, weight and carrying capacity

Despite the fact that both backhoe loaders are direct competitors in the market, occupying the same niche, they have a rather large difference in overall dimensions. This parameter can play a significant role in the process of choosing machine for performing tasks of one type or another.

The French Case 580 backhoe loader has a length of 5.77 m, a width (along the wheels) - 2.23 m, a height (along the cabin) - 3.9 m. The American Terex 860 has a length of 7.33 m, a width (along the wheels ) - 2.3 m, height (in the cabin) - 2.77 m.

The basic configuration of the Terex 860 weighs 8.12 tonnes, with a lifting capacity of 3.46 tonnes. Case 580 weighs 8.1 tons with a rated lifting capacity of 1.05 tons. With comparable dimensions / weight, the Terex 860 has an increased payload.

Comparison of tank volume and fuel consumption

The Terex 860 has a 130 liter metal tank while the Case 580 has a 145 liter tank. Case 580 fuel consumption - 14-17 l / h (depending on the selected operating mode), Terex 860 fuel consumption - 10-15 liters (taking into account the selected operating mode).

Despite the larger tank capacity, the Case 580's fuel consumption is slightly higher than that of the Terex 860, so the battery life is approximately the same for both machines.

Complexity of maintenance and repair

Backhoe loaders Terex 860 and Case 580 were designed for identical tasks, therefore they are very similar in design. They have a traditional modular design, providing quick access for maintenance and repair of major components / assemblies.

Both models use sophisticated technical solutions. In the event of breakdowns of medium and high complexity, repairs should be carried out only at a service center. Only minor problems can be fixed in the field.
