Gehl Increases Load Capacities for DL Series Telehandlers

Gehl Company, West Bend, Wis., recently announced that it has increased load capacities on its DL Series Dynalift telescopic handlers. The 2008 DL Series telehandlers are available with lift capacities from 7,000 to 12,000 pounds and with lift heights from 40 to 55 feet. Gehl will have the telehandlers on display at ConExpo in March.

The models are designed with a high-profile boom configuration to provide maximum visibility in any working environment. In addition, the new machines now feature Tier 3 engines to ensure compliance with environmental standards. The Dynalift units have 12'2” turning radius and an overall height of 7'8”, giving maneuverability in confined spaces. Each model features a rear axle stabilization system for improved stability. The telehandlers do not require fluid-filled tires to meet stability requirements, and outriggers are optional.

Two attachment mounting systems provide the DL Series units more versatility. The Dynattach System is designed for standard lifting applications and the Dynacarrier System has the digging capacity of a loader, for more heavy-duty applications.

The machines were also designed with serviceability in mind. The side-mounted engine is accessible under an easy-lift engine cover, and a mid-frame cover provides access to other transmission, transfer, case, electrical and hydraulic components.

DL Series units offer a large operator's compartment, ergonomically tailored to suit operator needs. Customers can choose the standard canopy or optional fully enclosed cab with heat and optional air conditioning.

The single joystick is available in dual- or tri-function options. The dual-function joystick allows for proportional control of attachments and auxiliary hydraulics rated at 43 gpm. 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 Personnel Work Platform Safety System and the Radio Remote Control System.
