Gehl Company, a manufacturer of compact equipment for agriculture and construction markets, unveiled a new model Gehl 7810E skid loader.
The 7810E skid loader is powered by a Cummins 99-hp (74 kW) turbo-charged diesel engine with 305-ft./lb. (414 Nm) torque. It has an increased SAE rated load capacity of 3,850 lbs. (1,746 kg).
“This new model skid loader was designed to be the ultimate in digging and lifting performance,” said Kelly Moore, skid loader product manager of Gehl. “The 7810E has features, including true vertical-lift linkage, which provides consistent forward reach throughout the entire lift cycle. A lift height of approximately 12 feet is the highest in the industry.”
With a 3,300 psi hydraulic system relief pressure, the new 7810E skid loader delivers a force of 8,340-lbs. (37.1 kN). The auxiliary hydraulic system, provides standard 29 gpm adjustable flow (110 Lpm) and up to 41 gpm (155 Lpm) with optional high-flow.
Additionally, a two-speed drive is available, which offers ground speeds up to 12.5 mph. The 55-in. wheelbase, combined with the optional Hydraglide ride control system, with a special lift arm suspension system that allows the lift arm to “float,” provides a smooth ride at fast ground speeds.
The cab provides more head, shoulder and leg room, resulting in operator comfort. An optional suspension seat adjusts to fight fatigue, and a choice of servo-controlled low-effort controls deliver precise responses for productivity. Four choices of controls are available: joystick, dual-hand, hand-foot, and T-bar “hands-only.” An optional factory-installed air-conditioning and heating system adds comfort, while 360-degree visibility makes working in cramped environments safer and easier.
The Power-A-Tach universal-type quick-attach system option makes changing attachments fast and easy. Users can connect and disconnect attachments without leaving the operator’s seat.
The new 7810E skid loader offers easy access for routine service. The engine cover has a gas-spring assist for easy lifting, and the rear door, radiator and oil cooler swing out for easy access. The ROPS/FOPS cab structure is easily pivoted up and out of the way with a built-in hydraulic pump, or with a new optional electric pump.
A newly designed fan has been incorporated for more air flow, improving cooling ability and quieter sound levels. Improved fuel tank design with increased capacity of 30.5 gal. (115 L) has been incorporated to accommodate long operating days.
In addition to the new 7810E skid loader, Gehl offers a complete line of E-series skid loader models with SAE operating load ratings from 1,050 to 3,850 lbs. All Gehl skid loaders are designed with enhanced performance, and operator comfort, and are designed to use multiple attachments for added versatility.
