Gravely rolled out its Axis 100 series of gasoline-powered compact utility loaders, designed to provide a low-barrier-of-entry opportunity to landscape contractors and lawn maintenance professionals ready to grow their businesses.
“In years of drought or reduced business, the Gravely Axis 100 gives more professionals a cost-friendly solution to expand their range of services,” said AriensCo Director of Commercial Product Grant Wilson. “With a universal attachment mounting plate that supports interchangeable attachments, the AXIS 100 is a Swiss Army Knife. It scoops, lifts and transports supplies and material, digs, trenches, and opens multiple new revenue streams without adding labor.”
The Axis 100GT and Axis 100GW, which represent track and wheel-drive models, feature many of the same unique-to-market features as their diesel-powered counterparts.
The product includes::
- It's powered by a 23.5-hp Kohler Command PRO CH730 engine.
- Additional features self-leveling boom/bucket, universal attachment plate, adjustable hydraulics to supply power where needed, track and wheel options, two auxiliary hydraulic ports to drive motor- and cylinder-driven attachments and a common controls layout.
- The compact size and lightweight footprint of the AXIS 100 is also a welcome characteristic for smaller companies. At 40 inches wide and 60.5 inches long (without attachment), both track and wheel models can fit on most open and enclosed trailers, preventing the need for additional investments in new transportation vehicles.
- Weighing only 2,189 pounds, the AXIS 100GT track model floats over work areas with minimal impact to manicured turf
The Gravely AXIS 100 is made in America at AriensCo’s Fayetteville, Tenn., manufacturing facility and will be available at select independently owned and operated Gravely dealers in the U.S. and Canada beginning in spring 2024.
