Gehl 7810E skid-steer loaderThe 7810E skid-steer loader has an SAE rated load capacity of 3,850 pounds, which, according to Gehl, is tops in the industry. The new loader uses a 99-hp Cummins diesel engine that develops 305 pounds-feet of torque. The 7810E features a vertical-lift loader mechanism that provides nearly 12 feet of lift height, and the loader is equipped with the company’s Power-A-Tach universal-type coupler. The implement hydraulic system operates at a pressure of 3,300 psi, and the standard auxiliary circuit delivers a flow of 29 gpm; the optional high-flow system is rated at 41 gpm. An available two-speed travel system provides a top speed of 12.5 mph, and the machine, with a 55-inch wheelbase, also can be fitted with Gehl’s optional Hydraglide ride-control system. Four control choices include joystick, dual-hand, hand-foot and the hands-only T-bar.
