Gradall Industries Introduces Xl 5300 III, Largest Model In On/Off Pavement Wheeled Excavator Group

Weighing 51,216 lbs, the XL 5300 III introduced by Gradall Industries is the largest model in the Gradall collection of excavators with wheeled undercarriages designed for high productivity jobs on every terrain.

The XL 5300 III, with the new yellow Gradall color scheme, has a maximum reach of 33 feet, 10 inches at grade and a maximum dig depth of 24 feet, 7 inches. Its rated bucket breakout force is 25,405 lbs. and the rated boom force is 24,941 lbs.

Sure-footed both on and off pavement, the rubber tire undercarriage will not damage concrete or asphalt surfaces while providing an exceptionally stable work platform. In fact, the XL 5300 III can work at the front, rear or either side of the undercarriage without the need to lower its optional outriggers or optional grading blade for extra stability.

Mobility is enhanced by a design using 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 Gradall telescoping, full-tilting boom can precisely position buckets, hammers, grapples, shears and other attachments without losing power – an advantage over conventional models with boom-end tilting mechanisms.  A short tail swing allows the big machine to work in tight spaces and along highways with minimal traffic interruption.

Operator efficiency and safety can be impacted with several advantages, including a full view of the entire boom during the complete dig cycle. The operator cab offers increased comfort with sound-deadening capabilities, a large seat with built-in joysticks and a convenient switch that allows the operator to select the Gradall, Deere or SAE joystick pattern. Repositioning is accomplished with foot pedals.

A host of attachments are available for the XL 5300 III, including excavating buckets, grading blades, boom extensions, trenching buckets, pavement removal buckets, limb shearers, ditching buckets, fixed thumb grapple, live booms and dredging buckets.

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

All machines manufactured by Gradall Industries meet or exceed ISO 9001-2008 standards for quality. For information, visit www.gradallindustries.com.

Off-Road Equipment Manufacturers Meet With Gov. Romney To Discuss Strengthening The Economy, Exports

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and leaders of four equipment manufacturing companies today joined former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at a manufacturing plant in Pataskala, Ohio to discuss ways to strengthen U.S. manufacturing in the global marketplace.

AEM member company business leaders from Ohio and Iowa shared their perspectives with Gov. Romney about the need for new manufacturing policies that would rebuild deteriorating roads, bridges and highways and help American manufacturers and farmers export their products to new and expanded markets around the world.

Gov. Romney spoke to employees at Screen Machine Industries (SMI), an American, family-owned manufacturing business that produces heavy equipment. SMI is a member of AEM and participates in the I Make America campaign to support manufacturing jobs.

In its effort to support America’s manufacturing sector, AEM launched a national grassroots campaign in 2010 called I Make America to give a voice to the men and women across the nation who work in manufacturing and agriculture. Thousands of people across the country have signed up to support this campaign, recognizing that infrastructure investment and export-friendly policies are two fundamental ways to generate economic growth and create jobs.

AEM member company leaders who participated with AEM in the discussion with Gov. Romney included:
