Gradall's storm recovery series aims to help contractors in wake of hurricanes and tornadoes

Gradall has introduced a Storm Recovery Series collection of  machines designed to help municipalities, counties and contractors handle multiple challenges in the wake of hurricanes, tornadoes and other weather disasters.

"The summer and fall of 2020 is predicted to be a busier-than-normal hurricane season, from the Gulf Coast, around Florida, and continuing up into New England," said Mike Popovich, Gradall vice president of excavator products. "We are working closely with our distributor network, especially in these areas, to make these Storm Recovery Series machines readily available to help first responders access and clean up disaster areas very quickly."

Highway speed Gradall excavators can be driven over highways at 60 mph, without the need for a lowboy trailer, enabling them to get to disaster sites quickly and remove fallen trees and debris to create access for other emergency vehicles.
 
Once on a disaster site, and during the recovery process, the excavators can be equipped with a wide range of useful attachments including fixed-thumb grapples, tree limb shears, boom extensions and buckets, enabling them to collect and load tree limbs and trunks, rocks, household debris and building materials into trucks, as well as open drainage ditches and waterways.
 
Gradall's highway speed machine collection also includes Discovery Series models, developed in collaboration with Freightliner. The industry's first crossover excavator models, with a Gradall upperstructure integrated into a Freightliner truck chassis, Discovery Series models are designed to fit into tight municipal equipment budgets. Two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive Discovery Series models weigh from 32,200 to 34,500 lbs. and have a boom reach up to 24 feet, 11 inches.
 
All Gradall machines are equipped with a telescoping, fully tilting boom, enabling operators to correctly position attachments for faster debris removal. The low working profile boom design enables Gradalls to work under bridges and tree limbs, reaching into piles of debris and handling work that conventional knuckle boom excavators cannot.

LOAD 60 TONS IN JUST FOUR PASSES WITH VOLVO

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.     

When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
