but what if you get on the side of the highway? i have enough trouble with the 4100's reach! or what if your one engine has a break down and your in a bad spot and need to move? I supose it comes down to what you are mostly going to do with it.
I find my XL series 1 Gradall to be very good reliable machines. The manufacturer should have kept to the two engine Cummins powered design which saves you on fuel. Like to try a boom extension to extend the reach.
I have owned gradalls since 2000 and love them. I currently own a xl4100 on a truck chassis and a xl4200 on tracks. both with very little trouble. I had a g3wd it was a nice versitale machine but I had a lot of problems and sold it for a g660c and loved it.
Welcome to the Forums cwestfall!
I am a Gradall fan myself but of the blue kind. Some of the best telehandlers made IMO.
hi....both of my gradalls are series 1 machines. One helpful purchase was a technical servece manual for these machines. It explains how many of the systems work and helps me troubleshoot problems.
