Gehl Introduces the V400, the Largest Skid Loader in the World, to Mexico, Central and South America

WEST BEND, WISCONSIN - 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, to Mexican, Central and South American markets. 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 Brian Rabe, Manager of Product Development. "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."
