Gehl V420 Skid Loader
The Gehl V420 skid loader is a shining example of Gehl’s superior innovation and well thought-out product development.
  • The re-designed chassis aids in superior weight distribution, which further enhances stability.
  • Thick steel plating and heavy-duty pins and bushings strengthen the loader for heavy-duty work.
  • Electronic engine control and electronic foot and electronic hand throttles allow operation at partial throttle, reducing sound levels and fuel consumption (not available with hand/foot controls).

Operator's Cabin
