Low profile and compact boom add stability to excavator

The Gradall XL 4300 V on/off pavement excavator is designed with a lower center of gravity and working profile, thanks to a compact, full-tilt telescoping boom. These features, plus oscillation lock cylinders, create a stable, balanced working platform that makes these models extremely productive and versatile.

Weighing 43,580 lb (19,768 kg), the XL 4300 V has a 4 x 4 wheeled undercarriage that can be driven up to 20 mph both on and off pavement. The exclusive design allows the XL 4300 to work at the front, rear or either side of the machine without the need to lower its optional outriggers or optional grading blade for extra stability. 

The XL 4300 V features the new Tier 4-Final compliant Volvo Penta diesel engine, which meets the highest global standards including the demanding Stage IV (EU) and Tier 4 Final (US) emission reduction requirements. In addition, fuel efficiency is improved by up to 5 percent.

Along with the new engine, Series V excavators include an upgraded high-performance, high-reliability 24-volt electrical system, creating a better power source. An operator cab safety option provides rollover protection that meets safety test requirements and is integrated within the existing cab structure, without external support.

The XL 4300 V has a maximum reach of 30 feet, 4 inches (9.2 m) at grade and a maximum dig depth of 21 feet, 3 inches (8.5 m). Its rated bucket breakout force is 25,405 lbs. (113 kN) and the rated boom force is 22,075 lbs (98.2 kN).

Steady both on and off pavement, the rubber tire undercarriage will not damage concrete or asphalt surfaces while providing an exceptionally stable work platform. 

Mobility is enhanced by a design utilizing a full-time, 4-wheel drive transfer case that delivers power from the hydraulic drive motor to the drive axles. Both axles have wet-disc brakes.

The famous Gradall telescoping, full-tilting boom can precisely position buckets, hammers, grapples, shears and other attachments without losing power - an advantage over conventional models with boom-end tilting mechanisms.  A short tail swing allows the big machine to work in tight spaces and along highways with minimal traffic interruption. 

Operator efficiency and safety can be impacted with several advantages, including a full view of the entire boom during the complete dig cycle. The operator cab offers increased comfort with sound-deadening capabilities, a large seat with built-in joysticks and a convenient switch that allows the operator to select the Gradall, Deere or SAE joystick pattern. Repositioning is accomplished with foot pedals.

A host of attachments are available for the XL 4300 V, including excavating buckets, grading blades, boom extensions, trenching buckets, pavement removal buckets, limb shearers, ditching buckets, fixed thumb grapple, live booms and dredging buckets.
