Unveiled at Equip Expo 2023, the new Axis 100 series from Gravely offers a gas-powered alternative to their previously released diesel-powered models. Running on a Kohler Command PRO CH730 engine, the Axis 100 series boasts a powerful performance with its 23.5-horsepower output.
Despite the difference in engines, both track and wheel options of the Axis 100 series still offer similar features as their diesel counterparts: the Axis 200 DT, Axis 200 DW, and Axis 200 DTN. These include a self-leveling boom/bucket, universal attachment plate, adjustable hydraulics for efficient power distribution, and two auxiliary hydraulic ports for motor- and cylinder-driven attachments.
Designed with user-friendliness in mind, all models in the Axis series come equipped with intuitive controls such as two steering levers and a single joystick for easy boom control. Additionally, each model has an impressive lift height of approximately forty-eight inches when angled at forty-five degrees.
With a weight of just over two thousand pounds and tip loads ranging from one thousand to twelve hundred pounds depending on the model type (track or wheel), these compact utility loaders are perfect for professionals looking to expand their services without adding extra labor costs.
Grant Wilson from AriensCo is excited about how this new addition will benefit customers during times of drought or reduced business opportunities. He states that “the Gravely Axis 100 provides a cost-friendly solution that can open up multiple revenue streams by efficiently handling tasks like scooping materials or digging trenches.” And with its compact size allowing it to fit onto most trailers easily, this versatile machine truly lives up to being compared to a trusty Swiss Army knife.
