Performance

Gehl RT215 Compact Track Loader Performance

The Gehl RT215 Compact Track Loader was designed from the ground up...

  • Tier IV-certified Yanmar diesel engines provide 72 hp (53.7 kW)
  • Designed from the ground up, the welded chassis aids in superior weight distribution, which further enhances stability, grading, tractive effort and provides a smoother ride.
  • Flush rear door and angled rear towers provide tight rear clearance radius and excellent visibility.
  • Optional rear bumper/counterweight provides additional protection and towing capability.
  • Thick steel plating and heavy-duty pins and bushing strengthen the loader for extreme-duty work.
  • Electronic engine control and foot throttle allow operation at partial throttle, reducing sound levels and fuel consumption.
Height to Hinge Pin - Fully Raised (mm) 128" (3251)

Operator's Cabin

The extra-large, state-of-the art operator’s station on the RT215 Track Loader is designed for optimal operator comfort resulting in more productivity.

  • Cab forward design enhances the view to the bucket.
  • Level II FOPS is standard equipment.
  • New, side-folding restraint bars and armrests with multiple adjustments enhance operator safety and comfort.
  • Fully adjustable controls mounted to a standard mechanical suspension seat or an optional air-ride seat deliver outstanding comfort and precision control by moving with the operator during operation.
  • Complicated gauges and cluttered dash readouts are eliminated with a customizable, easy-to-use multi-function display that incorporates all warning/operation lights and machine configuration screens.
  • Optional pressurized sealed cab enclosure with heat/AC, sound reduction material and rear-mounted air filter provide a comfortable, clean and quiet operating environment.

Controls

Gehl RT215 Track Loader Controls

Controls on the Gehl RT215 Compact Track Loader are ergonomically designed to reduce operator fatigue, increase productivity and improve versatility.

  • Pilot controls provides the operator true 1:1 proportional control over the drive system.
  • All-New seat-mounted pilot control system - redesigned cab mount the controls to the seat, providing added leg room and less arm fatigue during operation.
  • Hydraloc™ system applies the parking brake whenever the operator raises the restraint bars, leaves the operator's seat, opens the door or switches off the ignition.
  • Standard, selectable 2-speed drive motors, horn and backup alarm.
  • Optional speed control adds ability to tailor machine operating speeds to application, independent of engine rotation.
  • Standard ISO drive pattern, optional selectable ISO and dual hand (H-pattern) controls.
  • Multi-purpose LCD display provides easy readout during operation.
  • Single button allows simple scrolling and selection of various display functions.
  • Optional HydraGlide™ system allows the lift arm to "float" when transporting loads, minimizing loss of material and providing a smoother ride at faster transport speeds.

Engine

The RT215 engine is packed with plenty of low-end torque, just what a track loader needs to power through the toughest jobs.

  • Automatic glow module engine intake heating system provides superior cold-weather starting.
  • Engine warranty, parts and service are handled through dealership servicing in conjunction with Gehl parts and service support.

Hydraulics

The RT215 Compact Track Loader hydraulic system is engineered to push more material, lift heavier loads and power demanding attachments.

  • Standard and optional high-flow auxiliary hydraulics are designed to handle virtually every flow/high performance attachment.
  • New cast-iron pump design delivers efficient flow at higher temperatures.
  • Lift cylinders incorporate cushioning for smoother operation when lowering the lift arm.
  • Pilot Hydraulic transmission with direct engine coupling provides high operating efficiency while AntiStall technology keeps the power flowing.
  • Power track drive motors deliver superior pushing power.
  • Auxiliary hydraulic quick couplers easily connect under pressure for fast, efficient attachment changes.

Attachment System

The RT215 Compact Track Loader is available with your choice of two attachment mounting systems designed to enhance jobsite efficiency.

  • All-Tach® system manually engages and disengages with a single lever.
  • Power-A-Tach® system allows for attachment changes electronically at the push of a button, further enhancing jobsite productivity.
  • Both systems are compatible with all universal-style track loader attachments.

Lift Arm

The robust lift-arm on the RT215 Compact Track Loader is designed for optimal strength, visibility and capacity.

  • Additional reach and increased dump height result in more efficient load placement and overall performance.
  • Low-profile design provides outstanding forward, rear and side visibility.
  • Simple "in-line" design increases structural integrity by eliminating the complex geometry and welding found on many competitive "offset" lift arm designs.
  • Front channel support and large diameter pivot pins provide exceptional lateral strength and rigidity.
  • Lift-arm incorporates dual bucket cylinders and two lift-arm stop blocks on the front of the main frame to evenly distribute digging forces.
Height to Hinge Pin - Fully Raised (mm) 128" (3251)
Reach - Fully Raised (mm) 34.5" (876)

Serviceability

Serviceability is very important to our customers. The RT215 is sure to exceed your service expectations.

  • Large, gas-spring assisted engine cover and over-sized, flush-mounted rear door allows full access on the rear of the machine for servicing and maintenance.
  • Lockable compartments on the rear towers open to reveal the battery on the left and hydraulic tank on the right.
  • Entire ROPS/FOPS assembly tilts rearward with large gas-springs for easy internal service access.
  • Track rollers and idlers are sealed and require no maintenance.
  • Patented tilt-out foot pod allows for best-in-class foot well cleanout and provides perfect access to the fuel tank and other components under the cab.
  • Coded wiring takes the guesswork out of electrical system identification.
