Gehl Company has loaned a new Gehl 6640E skid steer loader to the Milwaukee Brewers to assist with snow removal and general maintenance at Miller Park.

“We are pleased to be able to assist Miller Park with Gehl equipment,” said Dan Keyes, Gehl’s vice president of sales and marketing. “With the record-breaking snow in Milwaukee already this year, we thought that this would be the perfect time to deliver a skid loader to assist the Brewers’ maintenance crew in clearing the parking lots and sidewalks for visitors to Miller Park during the holiday season and for their upcoming events.”

The skid loader has a fully enclosed cab with heating and defrosting and the Gehl PowerView lift arm.

Attachments included a 74-in. (187 cm) bucket and a 72-in. (182 cm) hydraulic-powered angle broom for cleaning sidewalks and parking lots.

“Not only will the Gehl equipment help us out through the heavy snowfall this holiday season, it will be an asset to our grounds crew all year long,” said Rick Schlesinger, executive vice president of business operations, Milwaukee Brewers. “We appreciate the Gehl partnership and look forward to a terrific 2008.”
