Case CX55B Compact Excavator
March 24, 2011


With a large boom and arm for greater reach, the Case CX55B compact excavator delivers 11,240 lbf (50 kN) of bucket digging force. Its 39.3-hp (29-kW) engine, operating weight of 12,295 lb (5577 kg) and dig depth of 12 ft 10 in (3.9 m) give the CX55B enough size and power for tackling a variety of utility, commercial and residential construction applications. Plus, its compact size and cab height of 8 ft 4 in (2.55 m) make the Case CX55B excavator as easy to trailer between jobsites as a skid steer. Case designed the CX55B with the operator in mind. The full-size cab design is 10-percent larger and 7 inches (178 mm) wider than other Case B Series compact excavator cabs. Large front and rear windows improve operator visibility. A new slide-up front window improves air flow and helps the operator communicate more effectively with coworkers near the machine.
