Gradall Discovery Series excavators are the construction equipment industry’s first crossover hydraulic excavators. Designed to deliver "more dig for the dollar" this cost-effective machine allows governments and contractors to get more jobs done with fewer machines and less money. The Discovery Series is a complete construction project package, combining Gradall’s renowned full-tilting, telescoping boom and the reliable over-the-road mobility of the Freightliner truck chassis.

Available in two models, the two-wheel-drive D152 and four-wheel-drive D154, the machines have a 220-degree full boom attachment rotation and 25-foot reach to handle grading, culvert replacement, landscaping, mowing, vegetation control, removal and replacement of curbs, gutters and sidewalks, and more. This excavator can also be driven easily on and off pavement. With a two-axle chassis and an automatic transmission, the Discovery Series excavators can be driven to one or more job sites by achieving highway speeds for fast over-the-road travel. On jobsites, it can be repositioned from the upper structure cab.
