With a rated operating capacity of 2,700 pounds, Gehl says its V270 skid loader is the strongest in its class. It is powered by an 84-horsepower Yanmar turbo diesel engine with 215 lb.ft. peak torque. The loader is said to achieve "near-vertical lift" and provide more than 130 inches of lift height — higher than any competitor in its weight class, according to Gehl. It also features the Hydraglide Ride Control System as standard. When maximum power is required, a 36.9-gpm high-flow auxiliary hydraulics option can handle most every attachment.
