Construction Equipment magazine editors have selected two Gradall excavator models for its list of the 100 most significant products introduced to North American governments and contractors during 2017.
• XL 3200 V Lo Pro crawler excavator, designed specifically
for extra low - overhead jobs including "top-down"
construction projects where excavation work must be completed beneath a 10 - foot ceiling.
• XL 3300 V excavator, with rubber tire undercarriage mobility both on and off pavement. The excavator is distinguished by its stability, able to use its telescoping, tilting boom at the front, rear or sides of the machine without requiring outriggers.
"Our Top 100 New Products of 2017 Awards serve to emphasize innovations, highlighting manufacturers who are investing in research and development," said Rod Sutton, editorial director of Construction Equipment. "Their investments pay off for equipment users in the form of greater productivity, efficiency and safety. They also ensure a competitive marketplace."
Sutten noted that several hundred product introductions were considered in a process that led to the selection of winners. "Our editors made selections independently, drawing upon our own experience with equipment technology and the equipment marketplace," he said.Winners will appear in the December 2017 issue of the magazine.
