2024 GRADALL D172 Highway Speed Wheeled Excavator

Gradalls’ most economical highway speed excavator , the Discovery Series D172 4×2 excavator is coming to Amaco!

This unit is mounted on a 2019 Freightliner M2 chassis – taking Gradall back to it’s roots!

Gradall’s full-tilting, telescoping, triangular boom is a legend in the industry, precisely positioning attachments to duplicate the work of a backhoe, grader, excavator, crane and many other machines. The entire boom tilts 220°, to precisely create grades and position material, or demolish bridges and foundations. Because the entire boom tilts, there’s no loss of power typical with boom-end tilt devices.

The unique boom design also delivers full crowd force power throughout the entire dig cycle – a huge advantage over knuckle booms that suffer from a severe reduction in force at stick angles over 90°. The Gradall boom delivers full power at every angle, while conventional knuckle booms have full power only in the middle of a dig cycle.

The unit comes equipped with a pin-on 60″ ditching bucket with bolt-on replaceable edge.

With a low profile, Gradall excavators can work in tunnels, under bridges, beneath tree branches and on the ground floors of multi-story buildings where knuckle booms just won’t fit.

Productivity on Wheels is what a Gradall excavator gives you due to the exclusive highway speed 4×2 undercarriage – why float your machine when you can drive there yourself!
