Compact solutions from Gehl

17 February 2011

Gehl will use ConExpo to add three models of European-style articulated wheeled loaders to its range in the shape of the 140, 340 and 540 models. They feature tipping loads from 1900 to 5100 lbs (0.86 to 2.31 tonnes) and can work with a wide variety of attachments.

Engine power ranges from 23 to 47 hp (17 to 35 kW), while the smallest model is just 41 in (1.04 m) wide, which combines with a 45° articulation angle to make them suitable for extremely tight spaces.

Sister company Mustang meanwhile will be introducing the 519 compact telehandlers. The unit offers a 19 ft (5.8 m) lift height and a maximum lift capacity of 5500 lbs (2.5 tonnes) on a frame that is just 148 in (3.76 m) long by 71 in (1.80 m) wide and 76 in (1.93 m) high.

Power comes from a 63 hp (47 kW) Deutz engine and the maximum travel speed is 15 mph (24 km/h). Like other Mustang telehandlers, the unit has three steering modes - 2-wheel, 4-wheel and crab.
