Operator's Cabin

Gehl R220 Skid Loader
The new R220 has a spacious operator station with plenty of adjustability and enhanced comfort features that users have come to expect from Gehl.
  • Large Level II ROPS/FOPS is standard equipment.
  • New side-folding restraint bar and adjustable armrests enhance operator safety and comfort.
  • Adjustable control pods (joystick and hand/foot configurations) and an optional air-ride seat deliver outstanding comfort.
  • Cab forward design enhances view to the bucket edge. Lowered rear towers improve visibility to the rear of the machine.
  • Extra-large side screens combined with Gehl PowerView® low-profile lift arm design provide a wide field-of-view to the side work areas.
  • Optional pressurized sealed cab enclosure with sound reduction material and rear-mounted air filter provide a cleaner, quieter, climate controlled operating environment.


Gehl R220 Skid Loader Controls
Controls on the R220 incorporate intuitive design, state-of-the-art technology and plenty of options to suit the preference of any operator.
  • Four control options include T-Bar, Joystick, Dual-Hand, and Hand/Foot.
  • Auxiliary controls are located on the control grip in all control configurations for easy access.
  • Customizable integrated digital display provides coolant, fuel, battery, environmental and engine regeneration, and more information in real time.
  • Adjustable joystick control pods provide ease of operator control with minimal effort, reducing fatigue.
  • New upper-left and upper-right instrument panels provide easy readout and switch access.
  • Hydraloc™ system applies brakes whenever the operator raises the restraint bar, leaves the operator’s seat or switches off the ignition.


Gehl R220 Skid Loader Engine
The R220 is equipped with a top-of-the-line Yanmar Tier IV engine that meets emissions standards and provides the muscle needed to tackle demanding jobs with ease.
  • The DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) system provides clean emissions without the need for additional fuel after-treatment additives.
  • The DPF requires regeneration to maintain optimal running conditions. This occurs passively as the machine is operated, but also requires occasional manual regeneration by the operator.
  • Regeneration is intuitively managed through the digital display and a clearly labeled rocker switch.


Gehl R220 Skid Loader Hydraulics
The R220 is equipped with a top-of-the-line Yanmar Tier IV engine that meets emissions standards and provides the muscle needed to tackle demanding jobs with ease.
  • Impressive breakout forces deliver optimal digging and lifting performance.
  • Improved cycle times increase productivity on the jobsite.
  • Excellent ease of operation and proportionate flow adjustability are achieved with the auxiliary flow control rocker switch located on the control grip.
  • HydraGlide™ option helps keep material in the bucket and provides a smoother ride by allowing the bucket to float when travelling over rough terrain.
  • Hardened chrome cylinder rods resist pitting, rusting and scratching, extending the life of the cylinders.

Lift Arm

Gehl R220 Skid Loader Lift Arm
The R220 is built with a robust, radial lift arm that incorporates performance and durability.
  • Radial lift path offers enhanced performance in excavating, grading and digging below grade applications.
  • Selectable hydraulic self-leveling option keeps the bucket level throughout the lift cycle.
  • Between the tire design keeps the machine length short and compact.
  • Gehl PowerView® low-profile boom design offers optimal side-to-side visibility.
