New RS Series Telehandlers from Gehl

Gehl is introducing its Tier 4 final RS Series GEN:2  telescopic handlers to the North American market, offering performance, reliability, ease of operation and serviceability, the company says. The six new models are powered by turbocharged 120 hp Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier IV engines that provide a 4 percent increase in horsepower and 6 percent increase in peak engine torque, compared to their Interim Tier IV predecessors.

The machine systems are monitored with an in-cab digital color display that shows real time fluid levels, engine RPM, machine hours, engine diagnostic codes, warning indicators and more.

The new RS Series include welded box-section booms that can handle rated capacities from 5,500 lbs. to 12,000 lbs. and lift heights from 19-ft, 1-in. to 55-ft., 1-in.  Other features includea a rear axle stabilization system that  locks the rear axle to improve stability whenever the boom is raised 60 degrees, or the parking brake is applied. Self-leveling forks are standard and eliminate the need for manual adjustments. Outriggers, standard on the RS10-55 GEN:2 and optional on other models, add stability and increase capacity when lifting to full height.Selective steering is standard, allowing the operator to choose between three steering modes: four-wheel, two-wheel and crab. Changing modes is as easy as flipping a switch in the operator's station.

Open concept frame design with high-mounted boom provides a 360 degree view of the job at hand, increasing both precision and safety. Dual joystick controls for all hydraulic boom functions are standard, with an optional tri-function joystick which incorporates the boom control functions into a single joystick control.

Easy-to-access, tool-free panels within the cab and on the outer perimeter provide easy access for maintenance. A diagnostic plug is located under the right-hand arm rest for quick engine diagnostics. A wide variety of attachments are available. The Dynattach Quick-Attach system allows for quick attachment changes, with the operator leaving the seat only to disengage the attachment.
