Boost performance with Gehl’s R Series radial-lift skid-steer loaders, which includes three models – the R190, R220 and R260 – with operating capacities ranging from 1,900 to 2,600 pounds.

When equipped with optional counterweights, the range is 2,110 to 2,780 pounds. Lift heights range from 120.5 to 123 inches.

Yanmar Tier 4 engines with diesel particulate filters eliminate the need for fuel after-treatments and deliver torque ratings from 173 to 206 foot-pounds. Auxiliary hydraulics enable 31.5 to 35 gpm flow rates with the high-flow configuration. The auxiliary hydraulic controls are located on the joystick, and a customizable digital display provides machine information.

The operator’s cab has a cab forward design and lowered rear towers to improve visibility. The cab features a side-folding restraint bar and multiple adjustment armrests, and the joystick and hand/foot control towers are fully adjustable.

An optional pressurized sealed cab enclosure is available, which offers sound reduction material and a rear mounted air filter. The machines feature wide rear doors and engine hoods for easy component serviceability.
