WEST BEND, WISCONSIN Gehl Company, a leading manufacturer of compact equipment for agriculture and construction markets, is pleased to announce the new Gehl DL-Series Dynalift® Telescopic Handlers with lift capacities from 7,000 to 12,000 pounds, with lift heights from 40 to 55 feet. Models are available 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 that controls all boom and carriage functions and a powerful hydraulic system rated at 43 gpm. Based on engineering ergonomics, the instrumentation and controls are easy to view, reach and operate.
Options on the models include the much-heralded and innovative Personnel Work Platform Safety System and the Radio Remote Boom Control System.
