Gradall XL 4300 V excavator features a low profile and compact boom

Weighing 43,580 pounds (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. 

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.

Improve utilization with mower attachment

Gradall’s wheeled and railway maintenance excavator models can use mower attachments to clear away brush, long grass and weeds and other vegetation along highway boundaries and railway tracks.

On/off highway excavators have greater capacity

The new XL 5300 III excavator is the largest model in the Gradall excavator family of on/off highway machines – with greater capacity as well as the ability to work efficiently in any direction.
It has an operating weight of 51,216 pounds (23,231 kg) with a maximum lift capacity of 13,508 pounds (6,217 kg). Rated boom force is an impressive 24,941 pounds (111 kN) while bucket breakout force is rated at 25,405 pounds (113 kN).
New operators can become more comfortable with this model faster thanks to a switch in the cab which provides a choice of SAE, Deere or Gradall joystick control patterns.
A standard “bucket shake” mode, controlled with a joystick button, allows operators to more evenly distribute fill dirt and rip-rap.
A single Detroit Diesel Mercedes engine delivers 173 horsepower to the upperstructure as well as the carrier. The chassis features the new Series III counterweight design that creates a shorter tail swing – a big plus when working in tight quarters or along highways. But even with a compact counterweight design, the machine has excellent working boom reach to 33 feet, 10 inches (10.3 m) and digging depth of 24 feet, 7 inches (7.5 m).

Tree limb shear attachment

Gradall excavator versatility takes a giant step forward with a unique tree limb shear attachment. The full tilting action of the Gradall boom allows an operator to put the attachment at the correct angle to productively trim branches and limbs that extend over roadways. The low working profile of the Gradall telescoping boom also allows an operator to position the carrier and work under tree limb obstructions – something that is not possible with a conventional knuckle boom.

Vacuum/hydro excavator has more power and features

The VacAll AT vacuum/hydro excavator benefits from the performance advantages of the VacAll Industrial vacuum loader and high pressure water sewer cleaning machines, providing contractors and municipalities with a high productivity solution to remove material for holes and ditches, and to excavate around sensitive underground utilities quickly and efficiently.

Gradall introduces major changes with XL 5100-III excavator

Gradall’s largest production model for construction markets, the new XL 5100 III, provides advantages over the model it replaces, the XL 5100. It is shorter for easier highway mobility, has a shorter rear swing and weighs just over 55,000 pounds. Unlike the XL 5100 that used two Cummins engines, the XL 5100 III uses just one Detroit Diesel Mercedes engine. Conserving fuel while producing greater horsepower, the new engine operates both the truck carrier and the upperstructure and boom. Plus, the concept reduces maintenance costs with only one electrical system, one radiator, one set of filters and other non-redundant features.

Telescoping-boom excavator has on- and off-road mobility

Gradall’s job-proven, tilting, telescoping boom creates a low working profile, enabling the 166-hp, 45,000-pound-class XL 4300-II to work in places where a conventional knuckle boom cannot – under bridges, beneath tree limbs or in tunnels. Consistent boom power is achieved with the telescoping action, unlike conventional knuckle booms, which cannot maintain constant power throughout the full digging cycle. Maximum digging depth for the Model XL 4300-II is 20 feet, 11 inches (6.4 m), while boom radius at groundline is 30 feet (9.1 m). The rated boom force is 22,075 pounds (98.2 kN). Bucket breakout force is 25,449 pounds (113.2 kN). A range of attachments and boom extensions, including a Gradall Telestick, are available.
