Gehl Company, a leading manufacturer of compact equipment for agriculture and construction markets, is really turning people’s heads with brand-new additions to their product lines: Gehl compact articulated loader models 140, 340 and 540. These exciting new machines have caught the eye of landscapers, farmers, ranchers, stable operators, fertilizer and feed plants, municipalities and grounds maintenance crews world-wide.
“We are very excited to offer this new and innovative product line to our dealer network and customers world-wide,” said Daniel Keyes, Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Customer Support. “The new Gehl articulated loaders fill a very important niche in the compact equipment market. With these new models and the Gehl dealer network to support them, Gehl Company is confident these new loaders will become a vital product for our customers and dealer network.”
Three all-new, uniquely different sized loaders are designed to fit both the budget and the application at hand. Gehl articulated loaders feature tipping loads ranging from 1,900 to more than 5,100 pounds (when not articulated) and rated operating capacities from 950 to more than 2,550 pounds. These multi-talented machines can run virtually all universal-type attachments, putting tools customers already own to good use. Compact sizes from as narrow as 41 inches on the model 140 allow easy access to extremely tight spaces. Articulated steering allows for turns up to 45 degrees, which further enables these compact loaders to navigate confined spaces while minimizing damage to sensitive surfaces and reducing tire wear.
Gehl articulated loaders come equipped with industry-proven Yanmar diesel engines. These quiet and efficient powerhouses feature Interim Tier IV-certified emission technology with excellent performance in all applications. Horsepowers range from 23 hp on the model 140 to 47 hp on the model 540.
Gehl articulated loaders are designed to go almost anywhere and do almost anything. A heavy-duty oscillating joint offers 45-degree turning angles to the left and right and 10 degrees of oscillation in both directions for optimal stability and maneuverability. The bucket and tires follow a constant turn radius, so the rear tires of the loader follow the path of the front tires. Narrow machine widths allow access to tight, confined spaces that most skid-steer loaders with comparable operating capacities cannot access.
