    Gehl Skid Steers

    I was wondering if any of you had any experiences (good or bad) with Gehl skid steers. I am considering them but I would like to get some feedback before I make my decision. Thanks in advance.

    First off, make sure you have a good dealer. I do and I love my machine. They are alittle more bare bones then a bobcat, but they are strong. I am starting to shop for a 7810 to add to my 4635.

    With gehl, later is better, they have the 35 and 40 series figgured out. The 7810e even had a 4 cyl cummings, hp @ 115. The machine is a beast, I dunno if it sould be in the same class as everyone else. You should be happy with a 4840e maybe a 5640e. Salopez, who is your dealer?

    I work on SALOPEZ gehl 4635 when it has needed work. I will tell you this. Its a complete bitch to change out a starter. Otherwise its a Ok machine. But I am also looking at a Gehl 7810 with the cummins to push a 12' protech snow pusher.

    I can only speak to the tracked machines but the CTL80 is quite popular around here...not as much power as the asv but they definitely hold their own..the hydraulic controls seem alot more snappy and more responsive than the ASV RC100...going from one to the other makes for a few minutes of learning curve

    The Gehl compact track loaders are made by Takeuchi. So are the Mustang.

    This I know..In the Northern Va market you will see very few Cat/Asv tracked machines. They hold a very low market value, mainly becuase of the undercarriage.

    We have a 7810 and it spends more time in the shop than in the woods. It probably a good dirt machine but in the woods their no good.

    I may have spoken to soon about the power differences between the RC100 and the CTL80 as there is only 2.5hp difference....however ours is great in the woods...second only I would think to a steel tracked machine like John has..we have 1500hrs of heavy brush cutting and clearing with ours and havent had one serious issue yet maybe we are just lucky?

    Exclamation Gehl Skid Steers

    We have a Gehl 5635 that has been a real workhorse . We also bought three (count'em 3) Gehl 7810s. They have been a problem from almost the very beginning. The main problem we have had is that the lift arms develop slack and rub the cab and the hoses.

    I definitely WOULD NOT( ) reccommend the Gehl 7810 !!!!!

    Has anyone else had this kind of problem with the 7810?
