careertrend article image

The Case 1845C is a powerful skid steer loader that can be equipped with a variety of buckets to handle different jobs. It can be upgraded with a horn, a noise-suppression system, front and rear lift brackets, and high-flow auxiliary hydraulics, among other options.


The Case 1845C skid steer loader packs a fuel injected four-cylinder diesel engine with a displacement of 3.92 liters. At 2,200 RPM, the engine puts out a gross horsepower of 60 and a net horsepower of 57. Gross horsepower is essentially the ideal engine output, while net horsepower takes into account belt-driven accessories such as cooling systems that gross horsepower ignores. The peak torque of the engine is 179 foot-pounds at 1,300 RPM.


The maximum rated operating load of the Case 1845C is 1,750 lbs., and the tipping load is 3,545 lbs. The breakout force of the bucket and lift arm is the maximum force that the machine is able to exert. The breakout force of the lift cylinder is 3,450 lbs., and the breakout force of the bucket cylinder is 4,690 lbs. With the bucket loaded it takes 4.3 seconds to raise the lift, 2.9 seconds to lower it, 2 seconds to dump the bucket and 1.4 seconds to roll back the bucket.


The height of the loader from the ground to the roof of the cab is 6 feet 8 inches, and with the bucket fully raised the overall height of the machine is 12 feet. The maximum rollback angle of the bucket is 30 degrees at ground level and 62 degrees at full height. The overall length of the loader, including the bucket at ground level, is 11 feet. The operating weight, including the driver and a full tank of fuel, is about 6,185 lbs.

Hydraulic System

The Case 1845C's hydraulic control system operates at 16 gallons per minute. The main relief valve is set at 2,300 PSI. The auxiliary hydraulics are mounted on the loader arm, and also operate at 16 gallons per minute with a 2,300 PSI relief valve. For additional hydraulic power, high-flow auxiliary hydraulics are available that operate at 30 gallons per minute.
