Hydraulics

Gehl Vertical Lift Skid Steer Loader Hydraulics V270

When maximum hydraulic power is needed to run demanding attachments, the V270 GEN:2 Skid Loader is equipped with the tools to get the job done right.

  • Standard proportional auxiliary hydraulic control gives the operator the ability to adjust attachment speeds with infinitely adjustable flow control.
  • Standard auxiliary detent allows the operator to set attachment for continuous operation.
  • Hydraglide™ system allows the lift arm to “float” when transporting loads, minimizing loss of material at faster transport speeds.
  • Lift cylinders incorporate cushioning for smoother operation when lowering the lift arm.
  • Pilot-controlled hydrostatic transmission with direct engine coupling provides high operating efficiency.

Lift Arm

Gehl V270 Vertical Lift Arm

The V270 GEN:2 Skid Loader does not use the ordinary vertical-lift design. This loader’s lift arm is designed with the operator in mind.

  • Low-profile lift arm design provides outstanding forward and side visibility.
  • Self-leveling lift action provides better control of lifting loads.
  • Heavy-duty timing link design, upper-rear channel support and large diameter pivot pins provide extra strength and rigidity to the lift arm, and exceptional rear visibility.
  • Four-point support through dual bucket cylinders and two lift arm stop blocks on the front of the main frame evenly distribute digging forces.

Dump Reach at Full Height (mm) 32" (813)

Serviceability

As with any Gehl loader, serviceability on the V270 GEN:2 Skid Loader is a snap.

  • Large engine cover is hinged and positioned by gas-springs to assist lifting and holding in place, and allows for easy return to closed/operating position.
  • Featured cab safety restraint bar for lifting ROPS/FOPS.
  • Large rear door easily opens on hinges on right side, allowing full access for servicing and maintenance.
  • Remote engine oil filter is on left side; easy access to hydraulic oil filter on right side.
  • Entire ROPS/FOPS assembly tilts rearward with a hydraulic lift for easy internal service access.
  • Drive chains and axle bearings are sealed systems that require no maintenance.
  • Coded wiring takes the guesswork out of electrical system identification.
