Would you just look at that majestic beauty? The new Case 580 EV is a new all-electric backhoe loader that can allegedly compete pound-for-pound with its diesel counterparts for a full day of construction site work on a single charge. Isn’t it a beauty? I wonder if it qualifies for an HOV lane exemption. And damn does it look good in that copper metallic. Does it come in a wagon?

I dream of buying a farm. Doesn’t need to be big by modern farming standards. I just want a field full of heavy equipment to play with and a private rallycross track along with a barn to store and work on fun stuff.
