Gehl RS5-19 Telescopic Handler Receives Engine Upgrade

Construction Equipment Guide

Gehl’s RS5-19 telescopic handler has had an engine upgrade. The EPA certified Interim Tier IV Yanmar 68 hp (50.7 kW) naturally-aspirated engine provides the power needed for demanding job sites, while providing reduced fuel consumption, according to the manufacturer.

The upgraded Interim Tier IV engine meets the latest emissions standards.

The Gehl RS5-19 is designed with a compact frame and tight turning radius of 11 ft. (3.35 m), allowing it to maneuver in low buildings and confined job sites. The RS5-19 is a low-profile machine with an overall height of 6 ft. 4 in. (1.93 m), for operating in buildings, under parking garages and in confined areas. The boom reaches to a height of 19 ft. 1 in. (5.8 m) and features the same welded box-section design that is on the Gehl Dynalift telescopic handlers.

The RS5-19 telescopic handler was designed to meet the growing needs of contractors, builders and rental firms for a 5,500 lb. (2,495 kg) lift capacity machine. All the features and benefits of the Gehl RS Series and DL Series telescopic handlers are incorporated in the RS5-19 telescopic handler.

Internal wet disc service brakes are standard equipment, for better stopping capability and longer life, along with a SAHR (spring-applied, hydraulic-release) parking brake, which is automatically applied when the engine is shut off, or manually engaged by pressing a rocker switch. This design eliminates the cable stretch and adjustments associated with many other telescopic handlers.

The view from the ROPS/FOPS canopy is a full 360 degrees. An enclosed cab is optional with front and top windows, a door and a heater/defroster for use in areas where operators need protection from the weather. Optional air-conditioning also is available for further climate control.

Two direct mechanical joystick controls for boom and fork tilt functions are standard. They are easy to reach and smooth to operate, optimizing operator precision and productivity. A deluxe suspension seat is optional. A work light package can be added to further increase the productivity of this machine.

Engine accessibility is made simple with a large, hinged hood on the side of the machine. The hood lifts fully out of the way, allowing plenty of room to access maintenance points, including the battery and oil fill. Underneath the unit Gehl has added a bolted belly pan to protect all engine and hydraulic components. A hinged access door provides easy access to the engine oil drain.

Hydraulic flow is up to 22 gpm (83 Lpm). Optional auxiliary lines are available to power a variety of available attachments, including, truss booms, jib booms, buckets and multiple types of carriages and forks. The Dynattach quick-attach system allows quick attachment changes. The hydraulic hoses are routed inside the boom protecting them from job site hazards.
