WEST BEND, WISCONSIN Gehl Company is pleased to announce increased load capacities to the DL Series Dynalift® Telescopic Handlers. The 2008 DL Series Telescopic Handlers are available with lift capacities from 7,000 to 12,000 pounds and with lift heights from 40 to 55 feet. These models are designed with a high-profile boom configuration to provide maximum visibility in any working environment. In addition to a new standard of maneuverability, stability, versatility and serviceability, the new Gehl Dynalift® Telescopic Handlers now feature powerful Tier III engines with cleaner emissions to ensure compliance with stringent environmental laws.
These units offer unsurpassed control in tight confines due to a 12″2″ turning radius and an overall height of only 7″8″. Each model features a rear axle stabilization system for improved stability in all working environments. In addition, the Gehl Dynalift® Telescopic Handlers do not require fluid-filled tires to meet stability requirements, and outriggers are optional.
Two attachment mounting systems provide the DL Series Dynalift® Telescopic Handlers more versatility. The Dynattach® System is optimal for standard lifting applications, and the Dynacarrier® System has the digging capacity of a loader, making it ideal in more heavy-duty applications. A growing list of toolâ€‘type attachments deliver even more jobsite applications
Serviceability is outstanding on Gehl Dynalift® Telescopic Handlers with the sideâ€‘mounted engine compartment and drivetrain configuration. The entire engine is accessible under an easyâ€‘lift engine cover, and a midâ€‘frame cover provides access to the transmission, transfer case, electrical and hydraulic components.
DL Series Dynalift® Telescopic Handlers offer a large operator™s compartment, ergonomically tailored to suit any operator™s needs. Choose the standard canopy or optional fullyâ€‘enclosed cab with heat and optional air conditioning.
Precise control has never been easier thanks to a single joystick, available in dual- or tri-function option. The dual-function joystick allows for proportional control of attachments and auxiliary hydraulics rated at 43gpm. The tri-function joystick allows the operator to preset a preferred flow to the attachment for optimum performance, yet with the squeeze of a trigger to activate full flow for faster cycle times.
Options on the models include the innovative, exclusive Personnel Work Platform Safety System and the Radio Remote Boom Control System.
