Articulated loaders are available in various lifting capacities of up to 1 161 kgs, with a wide range of accredited accessories and attachments, making operations highly profitable and flexible. Designed with durability and safety in mind, Gehl articulated loaders carry a series of both international and locally-recognised certifications and accreditation.

Dynamic design to get the job done faster!

  • Lifting capacities of up to 1 161 kgs
  • Variable ground speed while keeping a fixed engine speed
  • Oscillating chassis for uneven terrain
  • Quick change attachments
  • Ideally suited for the mining, construction, or agriculture industry.

While loaders are inherently manoeuvrable vehicles, the articulated versions enhance navigation in tight places with chassis angles of up to 45 degrees, while causing minimal ground disturbance and damage, delivering powerful lift functionality for confined material handling applications.

These machines can be equipped with a wide range of over 100 standard and customisable attachments to offer exceptional, versatile utility in construction, mining, agriculture, warehousing, logistics, general industry and forestry.
