To answer the demand for a larger wheel loader for farms, Gehl has released the 750 articulated. The AL 750 represents an expansion into the 44 to 59kW (60-80hp) power category where this model is expected to dominate. It offers clean Tier IV-certified emissions technology from a Deutz 54kW (74hp) engine that uses a diesel oxidation catalyst after treatment system.

Weighing in at 4-5 tonnes it’s the largest wheel loader in the Gehl product line and includes as standard a digital instrumentation display, a handy Power-A-Tach attachment mounting system and a multi-function joystick. Digging and scraping performance is maximised through some of the highest breakout forces in their respective classes and front and rear locking differentials.

A heavy-duty, oscillating articulation joint offers 45-deg turning angles to the left and right and 10-deg of oscillation in both directions giving the AL 750 optimal traction and manoeuvrability. The bucket and tyres follow a constant turning radius, so the rear tyres of the loader follow the path of the front tyres.

With a narrow machine width from 1736mm it allow access to confined spaces that many skid steer loaders with comparable operating capacities cannot reach. The Z bar-type linkage allows for mechanical self-levelling action in both the up and down directions, excellent bucket dump angles at the mid- and top-ranges of the lift path, mechanical return to dig, as well as outstanding forward reach.

An open canopy ROPS is standard but a complete cab enclosure is also available as an option. Full 360-deg visibility is achieved by positioning the operator above the load for safe operation and excellent view of the attachment. A multi-function joystick controls the lift arm, bucket, float, travel direction, differential lock and auxiliary hydraulic functions. An inching pedal allows operators to vary ground speed while maintaining a fixed engine speed to optimally run attachments while enabling precise machine speed control.
