Gradall XL 3100 V Hydraulic Excavator Now Features the Tier 4-Final Compliant Volvo Penta Diesel engine

The Gradall XL 3100 V hydraulic excavator, featuring the Tier 4-Final compliant Volvo Penta diesel engine, meets the highest global standards including the demanding Stage IV (EU) and Tier 4 Final (U.S.) emission requirements.
The single engine, with fuel efficiency improved by up to 5 percent, is designed to power the excavator up to 60 mph on highways, or 5 mph for repositioning around job sites from the upperstructure cab.

The same engine also powers the upperstructure boom, including swing motions, and famous Gradall telescoping, tiling boom movements. The advanced hydraulic system has pressure-compensated, load-sensing valves with reliefs on all circuits. This system delivers the right amount of hydraulic power to the boom to perform conventional excavator digging, demolition and barrier placement as well as sloping, finishing, storm and canal cleanup, tree trimming, and many other jobs using a host of attachments.

Along with the new engine, the XL 3100 V hydraulic excavator includes an upgraded high-performance, high-reliability 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 3100 V has a host of mobility advantages including highway travel speed capability up to 60 mph, eliminating the expense, time and manpower needed by excavators that require an extra truck and a lowboy trailer. At the end of the day, the XL 3100 V models also can be quickly driven back to the safety of the equipment yard.
At 40,930 lbs. (18,566 kg), the XL 3100 V model has a full-tilting boom with a maximum reach of 27 feet, 3 inches (8.3 m) at grade. The telescoping boom design maintains maximum boom force throughout the dig cycle, and the full boom tilt is able to position attachments exactly where they are needed without losing power. That’s a huge advantage over conventional booms that cannot deliver full power during the entire dig cycle, and sacrifice attachment power if they use a boom-end tilting mechanism.
Rated bucket force is 17,990 lbs (80 kN) while the telescoping boom crowd force is 21,940 lbs (97.6 kN). Maximum dig depth is 18 feet, 4 inches (5.6 m). Loading height maximum is 15 feet, 5 inches (4.7 m).
With the extra boom power, XL 3100 V models maximize their utilization of excavating buckets, trenching buckets, ditching buckets, dredging buckets, pavement removal buckets, fixed thumb grapples, boom extensions, tree limb shears, grading blades and more. As a result, governments and contractors are able to use one machine to complete work that used to require many machines.
Series V machines have almost 70 percent parts commonality, simplifying the task of maintaining inventories to complete common service functions. These machines also have longer routine service intervals, and most service locations can be reached from ground level. A global network of authorized distributors supports all Gradall excavators, supplying service advice and authorized Gradall parts.

All Gradall excavators are designed, built and supported by Gradall Industries, Inc., with processes that meet ISO 9001-2008 standards. Gradall Industries is wholly owned by the Alamo Group.
