About Gehl Company
Gehl Company is an American manufacturer of compact construction machinery. Based in Wisconsin, Gehl designs and produces skid steer loaders, track loaders, articulated loaders, compact excavators and telescopic handlers, along with an array of attachments for each category. The company also offers parts and services.
Established in 1859 as a small supplier of farm implements, Gehl has evolved into one of the world’s foremost names in the global construction machinery market. In 1988, Gehl acquired Dynalift, which produces telescoping-boom forklifts, and in 1997, it acquired Mustang Manufacturing Company Inc.
Gehl announced a partnership with French manufacturing company Manitou Group in 2004; four years later, Gehl became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Manitou.
The company maintains manufacturing facilities in the states of Wisconsin, South Dakota, Texas and Illinois.
Gehl offers both radial-lift and vertical-lift skid steer loaders. Billing the radial-lift loaders as “the next revolution,” the company’s website states:
“The versatile Gehl Radial-Lift Skid Loaders are designed to meet the demanding needs of contractors, municipalities, landscapers, mining, dairies and agricultural operations. These skid loaders also excel in excavating, grading and digging below grade applications. Due to the radial-lift path, the maximum reach is greater at the middle of the lift height. This is highly beneficial for loading flatbed trucks, backfilling or dumping over a wall.”
Gehl’s track loaders feature its patented IdealTrax Automatic Track Tensioning System, which “eliminates the need for manually tensioning the tracks on the loader before operation.”
Its compact articulated loaders boast operating capacities up to 1161 kg and articulated steering angles up to 45 degrees. Their ability to accommodate a wide variety of attachments make them among the most versatile articulated loaders on the market.
