XL 4100 IV HYDRAULIC EXCAVATOR
AN EASIER DRIVE ON HIGHWAYS WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
The new Gradall XL 4100 IV hydraulic excavator is easier than ever to drive to jobsites and back to equipment yards, thanks to its new AutoDrive system featuring an automatic transmission.
The six-speed Allison transmission uses push-button controls in the undercarriage truck cab, a big advantage for new and even veteran Gradall operators who also appreciate an in-cab switch to select either the Gradall, Deere or SAE joystick pattern.
“For years, Gradall has been the leader in combining excavator mobility, versatility and productivity advantages,” said Bill Thomas, vice president of Gradall excavator products. “Governments and contractors appreciate the advantages of an excavator that can travel at speeds up to 60 mph, eliminating the need for a lowboy trailer and enabling them to get to jobsites faster. The addition of an automatic transmission has received a very positive reaction.”
