Gehl releases ALT950 large capacity telescopic articulated loader

By Megan Hoegler   



Gehl has announced the release of its ALT950 telescopic articulated loader.

The loader debuted at this year’s National Farm and Machinery Show, which took place last month in Louisville, KY.

The ALT950 is a full-sized wheel loader capable of adding up to 17 feet of telescopic lift height. It has a tipping capacity of 10,974 lbs (4,978 kg) and is the largest telescopic articulated loader in the Gehl product line up.

A sharp turning radius allows the ALT950 to perform U-turns in confined job sites, making 44-degree turns in either direction. A selection of hydraulic options such as active boom suspension and intelligent hydraulics provide more versatility, allowing the operator to automate multiple movements and increase productivity.

The configuration of this wheel loader offers increased visibility and comfort, particularly with handling operations requiring 360-degree visibility around the machine. The position of the roof grid provides enhanced views at maximum lift height.

Operators can enter the cab on both sides with dual-door access. The multi-function JSM joystick is located on a floating armrest inside the cab, which controls the telescopic boom, hydraulic and directional drive functions. Due to its unique CVT transmission and Eco Mode, the ALT950 has optimized fuel consumption.
