Gradall’s XL 5100 IV highway-speed excavator delivers superior performance
Better Roads Staff | March 23, 2012
Gradall Industries’ XL 5100 IV is a more versatile, productive, highway-speed excavator than any other in its weight class. At 57,670 pounds, it allows for faster travel than ever before, from jobsite to jobsite, and back to the equipment yard at the end of the day.
With a six-speed AutoDrive Allison automatic transmission and transfer-case system, the operator can drive the excavator at highway speeds up to 60 mph and easily reposition the machine around jobsites and over roadside ditches from the upper cab. Models are available with either a 6 x 4 or 6 x 6 drivetrain.
Attachments include the following: excavating buckets, trenching buckets, ditching buckets, dredging buckets, pavement removal buckets, fixed thumb grapple, Telestick, tree limb shear, boom extensions and grading blade.
The XL 5100 IV has a maximum reach of 33 feet, 9 inches (10.3 m) at grade. The boom has full-tilting power for versatility on jobsites, versus using a boom and tilt attachment. Maximum dig depth is 24 feet, 5 inches (7.4m). Loading height maximum is 18 feet (5.8 m).
Rated bucket force is 24,900 lbs 111 kN) while the telescoping boom crowd force is 24,500 lbs (109 kN). Unlike conventional excavators, the telescoping boom forces are constant through the entire dig cycle.
XL 5100 IV models also have high-performance, high-reliability 24-volt electrical system and new high-visibility LED lighting and a compact tail swing that allows the machine to be more productive than ever on roadside jobs, while decreasing obstruction of traffic.
Over 80 percent of the service parts on all current Gradall machines are interchangeable, simplifying inventory processes to assure normal service parts are available. Optional equipment includes: bucket carrier, grid heater strobe light, block heater, tilt steering wheel and auxiliary hydraulics.
All machines manufactured by Gradall Industries meet or exceed ISO 9001-2008 standards for quality. For information, go to www.gradallindustries.com or call 330-339-2211.
