Gehl designed its new 7810E skid loader for high productivity. The skid loader is powered by a Cummins 99-hp turbocharged diesel engine with exceptionally high (305 ft.-lbs.) torque. It has an SAE rated load capacity of 3,850 lbs., a lift height of nearly 12 ft. and a bucket breakout force of 8,340 lbs. due to its 3,300-psi hydraulic system relief pressure. The 7810E has 360° visibility.

A two-speed drive is available, which offers ground speeds up to 12.5 mph. Buyers can choose from four types of controls: joystick, dual-hand, hand-foot and T-bar “hands-only.” An optional factory-installed air-conditioning and heating system is also available.

Price: $49,700. Contact Gehl Co., Dept. FIN, Box 179, West Bend, WI 53095-0179, 800/628-0491, or visit [2].
