The CASE Minotaur DL550 helps you dominate the jobsite with true dozing performance, massive power and unrelenting hydraulics--all in a single platform that's compatible with hundreds of attachments. It all comes down to providing you ways to work smarter to increase productivity and improve your profitability.

This exciting new product works very intuitively. It operates as a compact dozer when equipped with the fully chassis-integrated C-frame and six-way blade. That C-frame then can be dropped with a few easy steps, and then the machine serves as a loader with a 1.25-cubic-yard bucket — or it can be run with any of the hundreds of attachments equipment owners already have for their current loaders.

Key features of the new CASE Minotaur DL550 compact dozer loader:

  • Industry-exclusive chassis-integrated C-frame with six-way blade delivers true dozer performance
  • Industry-exclusive fully integrated rear ripper for tearing tough soils (optional)
  • Standard 1.25-cubic-yard bucket for heavy-duty loading and material handling
  • Compatible with hundreds of attachments — enhanced high-flow comes standard
  • Choice of steel tracks (two options) or rubber tracks to match jobsite profiles
  • Powerful collaborative fleet management with CASE SiteWatch telematics (standard) and remote machine access for diagnostics and software uploads


Sitting still isn’t what we do at CASE Construction. So, we’ve updated some features in the CASE Minotaur DL550 to offer a better operator experience. We have added new features and functionality on the LCD display. An improved menu screen now gives you easy, fingertip access to new features like advanced user codes and security, automatic engine idle and reverse/forward creep disable. In the cabin, armrest adjustability has been improved for easier use and the air ride seat can be reclined providing greater operator comfort.


The fully chassis-integrated C-frame with six-way blade—¬the same blade featured on the CASE 650M dozer—delivers smooth dozing performance and 25,826 pounds of drawbar pull*. Whether cutting or fine grading, the CASE Minotaur DL550 is a true compact dozer unlike anything the industry has ever seen.


Fully Chassis-Integrated C-Frame

The C-frame of the machine fully connects and couples back into the body of the machine, as well as at the front coupler. This provides the stability and smooth operating plane of a small dozer to ensure that all operating power is channeled through the whole body of the machine.

Six-Way Blade

Available in either 90- or 96-inch widths, the six-way-blade on the CASE Minotaur DL550 eatures the same full range of motions for cutting, carrying and windrowing material.

Adjustable Electro-Hydraulic Controls

The machine’s adjustable electro-hydraulic controls dial in blade, steering and shuttle sensitivity to smooth, moderate or aggressive to meet the operator’s preference. Blade responsiveness can also be dialed to operator preference by independently setting the speed of the blade tilt, lift and angle.

Dozer Grip

Dozer operators will appreciate the true dozer-style grips and joystick, delivering familiar feel and responsiveness in a compact platform.

Blade Shake & Fine Grading

The CASE Minotaur DL550 offers many of the most popular features from the CASE line of full-sized dozers, including blade shake for shedding sticky material from the blade, and fine grading for added control when it matters the most.

CASE Universal Machine Control

Outfit the machine for added precision, productivity and efficiency with machine control from any of the three major providers** with CASE Universal Machine Control.
