Brand new to the Gehl product line, compact-articulated-loader models 140, 340 and 540 have rated operating capacities from 950 to more than 2,550 pounds. The machines can run virtually all universal-type attachments, and articulated steering allows for turns up to 45 degrees, the company says. Powered by Yanmar Interim Tier IV diesel engines, the units range in horsepower from 23 to 47. Narrow machine widths are said to allow access to confined spaces that most skid steers with comparable operating capacities can’t access.
