The Gradall XL 5200 V crawler excavator is the largest model in the Gradall fleet of machines designed for highway construction, high-productivity excavation, demolition and material movement as well as finished grading and sloping.
The XL 5200 V features the new Tier 4-Final compliant Volvo Penta diesel engine, which meets the highest global standards including the demanding Stage IV and Tier 4 Final emission reduction requirements. In addition, fuel efficiency is improved by up to 5 percent.
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 cab safety option provides rollover protection that meets safety test requirements and is integrated within the existing cab structure, without external support.
The XL 5200 V has a Gradall telescoping tilting boom, which requires only minimal overhead clearance that allows it to work in tunnels, under bridges, on the ground floors of multi-story buildings and other places where conventional excavators with knuckle booms simply will not fit.
Another unique advantage is the ability of the entire boom to tilt 220 degrees for precise attachment positioning without losing boom power. The XL 5200 V has excellent boom force at 24,941 lbs.) and bucket breakout force at 25,405 lbs. When switching from high production digging to finishing work, the load-sensing high-pressure hydraulics system adjusts automatically to save fuel, eliminating the need for operating mode selection.
The all-weather operator cab is roomy and comfortable, with rubber mounts that limit shock and vibration when the machine is digging. The seating module can be adjusted eight different ways, while the left and right arm pods contain electronic joysticks that control the 220-degree tilt and other boom functions.
The XL 5200 V boom can telescope to 33 feet, 11 inches at ground line, or dig to a depth of 25 feet, 4 inches. Using an in-cab switch, the operator can quickly select the Gradall, Deere or SAE joystick pattern a feature that can shorten the learning curve for new operators. Operators also appreciate standard air conditioning, heater, acoustic lining and a removable overhead skylight and removable front window for fresh air.
Easy-to-see gauges monitor critical machine functions including engine RPM, oil pressure, battery voltage, hydraulic oil and coolant temperatures. Some other handy controls include a dig mode switch for fine grading control or maximum performance digging and a joystick lock for safe travel during transport.
