Volvo Penta diesels are the power unit of choice for Gradall in its Tier 4 Final/Stage IV tracked and wheeled Series V excavators. The tracked XL3200 V, XL 4200 V and XL 5200 V, and wheeled XL 3300 V, XL 4300 V and XL 5300 V machines will be available later this year, with the Series V highway speed wheeled following on. “Volvo Penta engines are ideal for us because they’re robust enough to power excavators that work off-highway in tough conditions,” said Mike Popovich, vice president of sales and marketing for excavators at Gradall. In addition to the compliance they provide, the company said that an improvement in fuel efficiency of up to 5% can be achieved.

Along with the new engine, Series V excavators include an upgraded high-performance, high-reliability 24-volt electrical system, creating a better power source. An operator safety option provides rollover protection that meets safety test requirements and is integrated within the existing cab structure, without external support.

The design of the boom and chassis of the Series V models create a compact, low working profile, allowing machines to work under bridges, in tunnels, beneath trees, and construction and roadside sites without obstructing traffic
