CASE Construction Equipment, a brand of CNH Industrial, celebrated a ground-breaking achievement recently with the delivery of its 10,000th vibratory compactor for the Indian market, the only company to have achieved this milestone in India.
CASE handed over the key to PD Agrawal, Chairman, PD Agrawal Infrastructure, Indore, at an official ceremony held at CASE India’s Pithampur manufacturing plant. Agrawal commented, “CASE products feature advanced technologies with the latest upgrades to meet customer requirements.

CASE compactors are the No. 1 in India. They offer unmatched reliability, high centrifugal forces, and 360o visibility. They are easy to operate and to maintain and offer excellent operator comfort. With dual-drum drive technology, multiple amplitude and frequency combinations and impressive maneuverability, the CASE compaction product range is of the top class quality and perfectly suited for various applications.
Abhijit Gupta, Brand Leader, CASE Construction Equipment India, said, “CASE compactors really stand out from competition for their world-class performance, productivity, and fuel-efficiency.

CASE India recently upgraded the CASE 1107EX soil compactor featuring a new FPT Industrial S8000 3.9 litre engine that delivers 100 hp at 2,200 rpm and torque of 435 Nm at 1300 rpm. The turbo after-cooled engine with internal exhaust gas recirculation ensures best-in-class fuel economy. More than 2 million S8000 engines at work across the world are testament to the reliability of this proven power plant. The maximum applied force in the range of 34 tonne is among the best in the industry. The hydrostatic variable speed control ensures the CASE 1107EX travels at the perfect speed for every type of soil, resulting in a uniform compaction.
This high productivity comes with high reliability and serviceability. The easy to open engine hood provides excellent access to service points. The pump group located at the rear of the machine is extremely easy to service. The outstanding all round visibility, together with the 90o rotating seat, makes it easy for the operator to control the rear wheel and front drum, operating productively and safely. The CASE 1107EX is also available with advanced features such as the compaction meter and Eagle Eye Telematics solution.
