The four new 80-Series all-wheel-steer loaders in the Gehl lineup use what the company calls “intelligent drive” technology. This automatically reduces speed and boosts tractive effort when the loader is driven into the pile without the operator having to change gears. The all-wheel-steering design helps maneuverability in tight spaces, and since the machine’s center of gravity does not move during a steering cycle, load capacities are not reduced while turning. The loaders come in operating weights from 7,055 to 12,015 pounds with engines from 38 to 76 horsepower. Bucket capacities go from 1.44 to 2.35 cubic yards, and operating loads range from 4,055 to 5,700 pounds.
