Gehl American Built Wheel Loaders Deliver Convenience and Cost Savings Advice to Buyers "North America's compact wheel loader manufacturers have now been through years of learning the customer's needs and the key applica- tions for this industry," says Brian Rabe, regional training manager for Gehl "With nu- merous application driven auxiliary hydraulics options, customer requested cab con- figurations and transmission options, it's critical that buy- ers review the detailed equip- ment specifications and fully understand the advantages before making a purchase." G ehl 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 cutting-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. Weighing in at 4- to 5-metric tons, the Gehl 650 and 750 articulated loaders are the largest wheel loaders in the Gehl product offering. With articulated steering and speeds up to 19 mph, these powerhouses deliver maneuverability and fast work cycles. Powerful engines rated up to 74 gross hp, in concert with industry-leading horsepower management technology and planetary final drive, contribute to the high tractive effort and fuel efficiency of these machines, says the company. The Gehl 650 and 750 articulated loaders may be compact in design but not in strength. Tipping capacities reach 7,907 lbs and bucket breakout forces are up to 13,020 lbs. With some of the highest breakout forces in their respective class and rear locking differentials, operators are able to fill the bucket to the max with each scoop and maximize digging and scraping applications, says Gehl. A heavy-duty oscillat- ing articulation joint offers 45-degree turning angles to the left and right, with 10 degrees of oscillation in both directions for optimal traction and maneuverability. The operator cabin is designed for com- fort with 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 ma- chine provide 360-de- gree operator visibili- ty of job surroundings and bystanders. The Gehl 650 and 750 articulated wheel loaders also include standard features such as a digital in- strumentation 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 loader attachments, expanding the work tool selection that can be utilized. These articulated loaders may be compact in design but not in strength. Rated operating capacities up to 2,560 lbs bring major power to jobs in tight confines and on sensitive surfaces. Gehl articulated loaders are ideal for landscape, agriculture, construction or rental. 116 Compact Equipment JULY/AUGUST 2018 *Lift capacity at full height retracted.
