Gehl introduces its largest skid-steer — the V400 — which features a rated operating capacity of 4,000 pounds and a vertical lift height of 144 inches, making it the largest skid-steer loader in the world, according to its maker.

The all-new V400 is a true vertical lift machine, which means the lift path follows a vertical line as opposed to the ‘s’-shaped path offered by competitive vertical-lift models. Equipped with a 99-hp Cummins diesel engine, the V400 offers 326 foot-pounds of torque. The hydraulic fan with swing-out cooler is designed to reduce fuel consumption and noise levels, while providing improved service access. All daily maintenance and service checks can be performed through the large rear engine hood.

“With the superior maneuvering characteristics of a skid-steer loader platform, the V400 is equally productive in a constricted building handling heavy loads, or on a congested road worksite operating a cold planer,” says Sean Bifani, Gehl product manager. “A user-friendly operator environment provides comfort, safety and intuitive machine control for professional operators and less-experienced users alike.”

The V400 features high system pressure, with optional high-flow of up to 40.8 gpm, which is designed to handle high-performance attachments. Standard Hydraglide ride control allows the lift arm to float when transporting loads, minimizing loss of material and improving operator comfort.
