Gehl comes back to the market with the world’s largest skid loader – the V420. This machine features a Tier IV certified Deutz 120 hp engine and 4,200 lbs. (1905 kg) of rated operating capacity. This is an increase of 21.7 hp and 200 lbs. in operating capacity over the V400, Gehl’s previous model in this size range. For added performance for large jobs, the V420 offers 354 ft.-lbs. of torque.

With an operating weight of 11,665 lbs. the V420 is the largest skid loader that is offered on the market today. The large skid steer loader comes standard with cab, heat and air-conditioning; 14- pin connector for easy attachment use; two-speed for travel around the jobsite; and Gehl’s patented hydraglideTM for a smoother ride and less material spillage from the attachment. A vertical lift path of almost 12 feet allows for excellent dumping and loading performance.

The V420 skid steer is configured to be a true tool carrier – coming standard with the features needed to operate attachments such as mulching heads, cold planers, rock wheels and many more. High flow auxiliary hydraulics are standard equipment and offer hydraulic flows up to 41 gpm for optimal performance. Five easily accessible auxiliary hydraulic lines with flat-face couplers are available on the front of the machine near the operator’s station for easy access.

The V420 cab is spacious and comfortable for the operator with a suspension seat and pilot joystick controls. Excellent visibility is possible through a large, domed glass front door and wide side windows that can be opened for added ventilation or talk to co-workers. A foot throttle or hand throttle allows the operator to easily increase travel speed or machine functions. An optional rear view back up camera provides increased visibility to the rear of the machine. Available in February, a radio with hands-free Bluetooth allows for the operator to make calls or easily stream music from another device for a customized environment.

Optional features include, but are not limited to; impact resistant door, 3” seatbelt and shoulder strap, rear view camera, brake release, and rotating beacon.
