Utility vehicles at the crossroad of electrification, automation and connectivity

A little over a year ago, National Grid and AVANGRID announced they were the first utilities in the United States “to incorporate fully electric backhoe loaders in their fleets.”

CASE Construction Equipment built the all-electric backhoe loader by using its 580 diesel-powered version as a foundation. To develop the 580 EV, CASE worked with both utilities, battery experts and my employer, Moog Inc, which designs and manufacturers electric and hydraulic motion control products.
