The RT175 and RT210 compact track loaders have industry-exclusive features that result from more than 10 years of market experience, Gehl says. For example, the patented HydraTrac Automatic Track Tensioning System eliminates the need for manually tensioning the tracks on the loader before operation. When the machine is started, the hydraulic system automatically pressurizes a load device that provides the ideal tension for the track system. The RT Series also includes turbo-diesel engines that deliver increased torque. Model RT175 engine produces up to 179 ft.lb. of torque; RT210 engine produces 206 ft.lb. Engines also feature AntiStall technology. The extra-large operator’s station is designed for operator comfort. The joystick controls are mounted directly to the suspension seat frame, allowing them to move with the operator as the machine travels. Standard Electro-Hydraulic “5x5” Drive Control System gives the operator the option to choose from five drivability settings that change five control settings.
