Gehl Introduces The V400, The Largest Skid Loader In The World, To North America

Gehl, a leader in compact equipment for agriculture and construction markets, is pleased to introduce the all-new, vertical-lift V400 Skid Loader; the largest skid loader in the world. The V400 boasts a rated operating capacity of 4,000 lbs. (1814 kg) and a true vertical lift height of 144” (3647 mm). As the king of all skid loaders, this machine reigns over the largest jobs.

The all-new V400 is a true vertical lift machine, which means the lift path follows a vertical line as opposed to an ‘s’ shaped path offered by competitive vertical-lift models. Lifting up to 144” (3647 mm), the V400 can easily load high trailers and trucks. With an unmatched rated operating capacity, there are few jobs this powerful machine cannot handle.

“Gehl is excited to regain the throne as the world’s largest skid loader,” said Sean Bifani, product manager. “The V400 fulfills the market’s demand for a high capacity skid loader. Paired with its high lifting height, the V400 enters the high-end of the skid loader market, where product options are minimal. The V400 provides maximum capacity and the industry’s largest breakout force at 9,150 lbs.”

The V400 comes equipped with a powerful Cummins diesel engine providing 326 ft-lbs. (442 Nm) of torque and 99 gross horsepower (74 kW). The hydraulic fan with swing-out cooler reduces fuel consumption and noise levels, and provides improved service access. All daily maintenance and service checks can be performed through the large rear engine hood.

When maximum hydraulic power is needed to run demanding attachments, the V400 skid loader is equipped with the tools to get the job done right. High system pressure, with optional high-flow of up to 40.8 gpm (154 L/min), is designed to handle virtually every highperformance attachment. Standard Hydraglide™ ride control allows the lift arm to “float” when transporting loads, minimizing loss of material and offering increased operator comfort.

The new state-of-the-art operator’s compartment features unsurpassed ergonomics and superior comfort. The standard level II ROPS/FOPS cab-forward design optimizes the view to the bucket. A side-folding restraint bar with adjustable armrests increases operator safety and comfort. An optional pressurized cab enclosure with sound reduction material and a rearmounted air filter provides a cleaner and quieter operating environment. The exciting new Gehl V400 skid loader is now available in the North American market.
