Tier 4 telehandler from Gehl debuted
By Lindsey Anderson23 July 2013
Gehl has released its RS5-19 telehandler with a Tier IV Yanmar 69 hp (51.5 kW) engine. The updated model is geared toward the North American markets.
The Gehl RS5-19 is designed with a compact frame and tight turning radius of 11 feet (3.35 m). The RS5-19 is a low-profile machine with an overall height of 6 feet, 4 inches (1.93 m). The telehandler's boom reaches to a height of 19 feet, 1 inch (5.8 m) and features the same welded box-section design that is on the Gehl Dynalift telescopic handlers.
Internal wet disc service brakes are standard as is a SAHR (Spring-Applied, Hydraulic-Release) parking brake, which is automatically applied when the engine is shut off, or manually engaged by pressing a rocker switch.
An enclosed cab is optional with front and top windows, a door and a heater/defroster for use in areas where operators need protection from the weather. Optional air-conditioning is also available. A deluxe suspension seat is optional. A work light package can be added, as well.
