Construction Equipment Guide

The Case Tier IV Final TR270 Alpha Series compact track loader is an updated 74 hp (55 kW) model that increases bucket breakout force (7,270 lbs.), torque (232 ft.-lbs.) and hydraulic flow (standard: 24.2 gallons-per-minute [gpm]; high-flow: 32.4 gpm) compared to the previous model. Ideal for landscaping, residential construction and agricultural work due to its light weight (8,200 lbs. [3,719 kg]), low ground pressure, narrow design (less than 66 in. [167 cm]) and attachment versatility, the TR270 offers enhanced performance in a package designed for easy transportation and minimal impact on the job site, according to the manufacturer.

The updated TR270 weighs in at 8,270 lbs. (3,751 kg) with a rated operating capacity of 2,700 lbs. (1,224 kg) — 2,800 lbs. (1,270 kg) with optional counterweight. The weight of the machine is perfect for most landscaping trailers. The radial-lift arm design is ideal for digging and pushing, and the machine’s hinge-pin height is ideal for loading and unloading trucks. A 19.5-gal. (73.8 L) fuel tank extends runtimes and ensures that the machine can work the entire day without refueling.

Achieving Maintenance-Free Tier IV Final

The TR270 features a cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) engine with a particulate matter catalyst, which is made up of a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and a high-efficiency flow-through filter. This solution is efficient and maintenance free as it does not require manual regeneration or filter replacement (compared to a diesel particulate filter). The DOC converts emissions into neutral gasses. The remaining particulate matter then passes through to the high-efficiency flow-through filter where it is stored and burned off through passive regeneration powered by the heat of the exhaust gas.

EZ EH Controls Provide Options and Flexibility

The TR270 offers a new EZ EH (electro-hydraulic) setup menu that features nine preset speed and control settings that can be adjusted on the fly. This allows the operator to match controls to their preference for comfort and greater productivity. A single rocker switch allows operators to switch between the CASE “H” operating pattern and ISO pattern controls. New handles with additional “feel points” improve controllability and feathering.

Dozer-Style Undercarriage Offers Stability and Performance

All Case Alpha Series compact track loaders feature a dozer-style undercarriage, designed for stability on steep slopes and performance in muddy and sandy terrain. The rigid track frame features fewer moving parts than suspension track systems, making it more durable and easier to maintain.

Comfort for the Operator

The TR270 offers one of the widest cabs in the industry at nearly 3 ft. (.9 m), and comes with an optional enclosed cab that is fully sealed and pressurized against noise, dust and fumes. The cab-forward design provides increased visibility with excellent site lines down to the bucket edge and curb lines, and to the rear of the machine. Ultra-narrow wire side screens, side lighting and a skylight further improve visibility. The low step and entry threshold makes it easy for the operator to get in and out of the cab.

Easy to Use and Maintain

The engine, filters and fill points are all located at the rear of the machine for quick access. The TR270 features Case’s easy-tilt cab for convenient access to the drivetrain compartment. Hydraulic quick couplers allow operators to quickly change attachments from the comfort of the cab, while connect under pressure (CUP) manifolds require no tools to connect or disconnect hydraulic lines.
