The XL 4330 V Gradall excavator is the industry’s only on/off highway excavator that can work at the front, rear, or either side of the undercarriage without the need for outriggers. This design allows for greater efficiency — no need to stop work to lower outriggers — and provides stable operation, enabling it to pick and carry cargo around job sites.

Weighing 43,580 lbs., the XL 4300 V model has a maximum speed of 18 mph both on and off pavement.

Designed and built by Gradall Industries, Inc., the XL 4300 V also features the new Tier-4 Final compliant Volvo Penta diesel engine, which meets Tier 4 Final emission reduction requirements. With 173 hp @ 2200 RPM, the XL 4300 V's fuel efficiency is improved by up to 5%.

Along with the new engine, Series V excavators include an upgraded 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 at grade and a maximum dig depth of 21 feet, 3 inches. The model’s rated bucket breakout force is 25,405 lbs. and the rated boom force is 22,075 lbs.

Steady both on and off pavement, the rubber tire undercarriage provides a stable work platform and will not damage concrete or asphalt surfaces. Although rarely needed, options include outriggers and a grading blade for further stability.

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 excavating and demolition attachments without losing power — an advantage over conventional models with boom-end tilting mechanisms. The Gradall boom design also creates a low working profile, enabling the machine to work under bridges, in tunnels, and under overhead obstructions. A short tail swing allows the machine to work in tight spaces and along highways with minimal traffic interruption.

Over 80% of the service parts on all current Gradall machines are interchangeable, simplifying inventory processes. Optional equipment includes vandalism protection kit, intake air pre-cleaner, strobe light, block heater, and auxiliary hydraulics.
