Describing its XL 4300 V excavator, Gradall mentions what it calls its “famous” telescoping, full-tilting boom. The company’s representative said the boom can precisely position excavating and demolition attachments without losing power.
The boom is one advantage the XL 4300 V provides to governmental entities, said Michael Norman, Gradall Industries’ director of sales and marketing.
“Our telescoping boom has been a mainstay for vegetation control, ditch maintenance, and water control, so the way our machine operates with our telescoping and full tilting boom gives these governmental bodies and departments of transportation the ability to do this work very easily on a daily basis,” Norman said.
The boom is one of several features of the XL 4300 V, which is an on/off highway excavator. It can work at the front, rear, or either side of the undercarriage without the need for outriggers. Not having to stop work to lower outriggers means greater efficiency.
It also provides stable operation as it picks and carries cargo around jobsites.
Volvo Penta Diesel Engine, Upgraded Electrical
The XL 4300 V features the new Volvo Penta diesel engine, which meets global standards including the Stage IV (EU) and Tier 4 Final (U.S.) emission-reduction requirements.
The excavator also includes an upgraded 24-volt electrical system to create a better power source. An operator cab safety option provides rollover protection that is integrated within the existing cab structure, without external support.
As for the machine’s boom design, it creates a low-working profile so the machine can work under bridges, in tunnels, and under overhead obstructions. With a short tail swing, the machine can work in tight spaces and along highways with little traffic interruption.
