Before resetting
Case Construction Equipment has won a USD15.5 million contract to refurbish more than 200 US Army forklifts over the next three years.

The US Army Tank, Automotive & Armaments Command selected Case to "reset"  Case MK4 rough-terrain forklifts that have been deployed with the army since the 1980s.

Reset is a military term defining a level of refurbishing needed to restore older equipment to mission-capable condition. Case Construction Equipment's defence products group manager Bill Thompson said the reset involved complete disassembly, inspecting and repairing or replacing damaged components, reassembly and testing.

He said the Case MK4 was unique because it could stack pallets two-high and four-wide inside military shipping containers.

Case currently has three other contracts with the US military, including supply of 500 engine "re-power" kits for Case forklifts. A recently completed reset contract of 50 Case forklifts had resulted in the current reset contract.

The reset work is being completed at the Case Remanufacturing Centre, in Fort McCoy, Wisconsin, USA. Thompson said the work was expected to boost the region’s economy by USD2.5 million a year.

Case Construction Equipment is a unit of CNH Global NV.
