The Gradall - A Story of American Ingenuity

Written by Jim Grant, this book traces the evolution of the Gradall from the early "Sloper", to the current product line of agile, versatile, and powerful hydraulic excavators and industrial maintenance machines. The signature of the Gradall, the hydraulic telescopic triangular boom, symbolizes the innovation of Gradall Industries Inc. Since 1946 Gradall Industries has evolved into a recognized global leader credited with the design and manufacture of hydraulic earth moving, construction, and industrial maintenance machinery. Along with the growth of Gradall Industries came the acquisition and development of new and innovative products to meet the technology demands for equipment within the growing earth moving and construction industries. All of these machines and other proprietary products developed by the company are well illustrated and profiled within the detailed text of this book. For the first time, this published historical chronicle provides the reader with unique understanding of the company and the Gradall product line which only the experience of former employees and distributor personnel can provide. The 256 page text of the book is supported with a colorful collection of over 250 photographs and an appendix with 26 illustrations and charts.
