In addition to the upgrading of its three established models with Tier-3 engines, the last year has produced the addition of an entirely new compact track loader to the Gehl offering. At a width of less than 60 inches, the 51-horsepower CTL55 weighs in at 6,129 pounds, with a rated operating load of 1,246 pounds. As with its larger siblings, the CTL55 features proportional-controlled auxiliary hydraulics, a foot throttle and a two-speed drive system. Gehl compact track loaders, including the larger CTL65, CTL75 and CTL85, use a standard pilot joystick control system.
