Gradall’s XL 4100 IV excavators have a host of mobility advantages including highway travel speed capability up to 60 mph, which eliminate the expense, time and manpower needed by excavators that require an extra truck and a lowboy trailer.

The XL 4100 IV models also can be quickly driven back to the safety of the equipment yard. The excavator’s ease and speed of mobility is one feature of the Gradall AutoDrive package that includes a push-button automatic transmission – standard equipment that makes travel easier with either a 6×4 or 6×6 undercarriage on city streets, interstate highways or on off-the-grid roads.

The AutoDrive system also has transfer case – the heart of the unique remote drive design that enables an operator in the upper cab to reposition the machine around job sites or over the length of a culvert or ditch at speeds up to 5 mph. The XL 4100 IV generates power for all mobility and productivity functions with a single 245-hp engine. The excavator models have a total unit weight of about 49,684 lbs. They have a 24-volt electrical system as well as high-visibility LED lighting and a compact tail swing for productivity on roadside jobs without obstructing traffic. Cabs are roomy and comfortable with standard features like air conditioning and ergonomically designed seating modules. More than 80 percent of the service parts on each Gradall machine are interchangeable.
