Three new mid frame skid steer loaders weighing in at 2,327 kg (5,130 lb), 2,690 kg (5,930 lb) and 2,796 kg (6,165 lb) have been launched that will be available under the both Gehl and Mustang brand names.
Under the Gehl brand, the three machines are designated as the R135 (replacing the 4240E), the R150 (a new addition to the line) and the R165 (replacing the 4640E Power2). In Mustang livery, the machines are designated as the 1350R (replacing the 2014), 1500R (replacing the 2044) and the 1650R (replacing the 2054).
The new machines feature a new cab with integrated digital display, a new load arm design that provides increased visibility, Yanmar Tier IV engines and several serviceability enhancements. Excellent service access is achieved through the extra-wide rear door and engine hood. A swing out rear door and new swing out cooler provide unparalleled access to filter, fluid reservoirs and the engine bay area. The level II FOPS structure tilts back with the aid of gas springs, providing easy internal access to the pumps, hydraulic valve bank and drive motors. Finally, all high-rotation pins have grease points for ease of maintenance and quiet operation.
