Case Construction Equipment recently celebrated production of its 250,000th skid steer loader.

A special ceremony was held at the company’s global skid steer manufacturing facility in Wichita, Kan. Case presented the 250,000th skid steer to its new owner, Dino Folino of A. Folino Construction, a paving contractor from Oakmont, Pa. The milestone unit — a Case 430 Series 3 model — is Folino’s fourth Case skid steer in a fleet of equipment that includes a total of nine Case machines.

Case began producing skid steers in 1969 with the 1530 Uni-Loader model, and has been innovating ever since with Case-exclusive features like ride control and side lighting. Last year, the company marked its 40th anniversary of manufacturing skid steers with Case Rockin’ Block Parties [especially themed dealer open houses] at Case dealerships across North America.

“In 2000, we manufactured our 100,000th skid steer. Then, just 10 years later, we more than doubled our sales,” said Curtis Goettel, skid steer marketing manager. “Today’s achievement testifies that customers around the world prefer Case skid steers. With more than 75 attachments available, you’ll find Case skid steers digging, hauling, pushing and loading material on job sites in more than 150 countries around the globe.”

A. Folino Construction is a major paving contractor in the Pittsburgh area. The company was founded by Dino’s father, Anthony, in 1972 and operates a large equipment fleet, including Case wheel loaders, excavators, loader/backhoes and skid steers for a total of nine products, including the new skid steer.

“We’re honored to take delivery of this machine, and we appreciate the attention that comes with owning the 250,000th Case skid steer,” said Dino Folino. “We’ll put it to work right away, like all of our other Case equipment. We have Case skid steers on all of our crews — they’re versatile, dependable and the operators love them. We’ve been very pleased with all of our Case equipment, and with our Case dealer, Groff Tractor.”

The Case 400 Series 3 skid steer loader line includes eight models, ranging from 57 to 83 net hp (42 to 62 kW) and 1,500 to 3,000 lb. (680 to 1361 kg) rated operating loads.
