A Trio of Units Including the Telescoping 750T
Gehl began manufacturing agricultural implements out of West Bend, Wis., in 1859. From those humble beginnings in a blacksmith shop, the Gehl brand has become a major force in the compact equipment industry worldwide. Today, Gehl’s leading edge research and design facility is still located in West Bend with North American manufacturing operations in Yankton, S.D., Madison, S.D., Waco, Texas, and Belvidere, Ill.
The full Gehl articulated loader line includes three models, the 650, 750 and all-new telescoping 750T. Gehl says these machines deliver ultimate performance and maneuverability. With a heavy-duty oscillating articulation joint, they can turn up to 45 degrees to the left or right and oscillate 10 degrees in both directions. Front and rear locking differentials provide maximum tractive effort for pushing into the pile, and bucket breakout forces that reach up to 13,020 lbs allow the bucket to be filled to the max with each scoop.
Gehl articulated loaders are ideal for agriculture, construction, rental or landscape applications. They have fast work cycles with travel speeds up to 19 mph and powerful engines that reach up to 74 hp. The maximum lift height of the 650 is 130.5 in., 750 is 136.8 in. and the new Gehl 750T telescopic articulated loader has the added benefit of a telescoping arm that gives an extra 44 in. of reach, bringing the hinge pin height up to 198 in. at full bucket extension.
Gehl designed these articulated loader cabins with operator comfort in mind, offering a seven-way adjustable seat, fully-adjustable steering column, cup holder, adjustable armrest and a multi-function single joystick for easy operation. Wide openings in the front and side of the machine provide 360-degree operator visibility of job surroundings and bystanders.
The Gehl 650, 750 and 750T articulated wheel loaders also include many standard features such as a digital instrumentation display, Power-A-Tach hydraulic attachment system, proportional auxiliary hydraulics and Z-bar-type linkage with mechanical self-leveling. Compatible with most allied loader attachments, articulated loaders from Gehl provide loader functionality while minimizing damage to ground surfaces, says the company. A universal-type attachment bracket fits most skid steer loader attachments, expanding the work tool selection that can be utilized. To learn more about these three models and their varients, be sure to visit a local Gehl dealer to discuss and test operate a loader or two.
Advice to Buyers
“When buying a compact loader, the customer often has overall height or width restrictions. Different tire options can change both of these in the operator’s best interest,” says Frederik Crul, global product manager for Gehl wheel loaders. “Making the right tire choice can increase productivity and customer satisfaction.”
