WEST BEND, Wis. -- Gehl, a leading manufacturer of compact equipment for agriculture and construction markets, announces the all-new model V330 Skid Loader with more than 131" of near-vertical lift height. With a powerful 84-hp turbo-diesel engine and a rated operating capacity of 3,300 lb., the V330 Skid Loader is among the strongest in its class.
"This loader provides the exceptional lift height and performance customers demand from a machine this size," says Kelly Moore, product manager for Gehl Skid Loaders.
The V330 Skid Loader achieves near-vertical lift with a state-of-the-art lift arm design that provides extended reach and lift height for easy truck and material loading. With more than 131" of lift height, this loader makes material handling and truck loading simple. The lift arm design provides optimal views to the sides of the loader and a direct line of sight to the bucket cutting edge. Thick steel plating braces the lift arm, providing additional strength and durability.
The V330 Skid Loader features a powerful Yanmar turbocharged diesel engine with 215 lb.-ft. peak torque. Horsepower and torque are enhanced with a high-performance drivetrain. Equipped with electronic engine control and a foot throttle, the V330 can be operated at partial throttle as the workload allows for lower sound levels and reduced fuel consumption.
Superior comfort is provided in an all-new, ergonomic cab design for the V330 Skid Loader. The optional, pressurized sealed cab enclosure provides a cleaner and quieter operating environment. Fully adjustable joystick controls and an optional air-ride seat deliver outstanding operator comfort.
Extra-large side screens and an optional wide-view front glass door provide unsurpassed visibility to the bucket cutting edge and front work area. The new side-folding restraint bar and armrests feature multiple adjustments to enhance operator comfort and safety.
When maximum power is needed to run demanding attachments, the V330 Skid Loader is equipped with the tools to get the job done right. The infinitely adjustable proportional auxiliary hydraulic control gives the operator the ability to adjust attachment speeds for optimum performance and efficiency. The system detent allows the operator to set the system for continuous flow. A 36.3-gpm high-flow auxiliary hydraulics option is designed to handle virtually every high-performance attachment. And the Hydraglide Ride Control System, unique to the V330 Skid Loader, is featured as standard equipment.
Serviceability on the V330 Skid Loader is a snap. The large engine cover is hinged and positioned by a gas-spring to assist lifting and holding it in place, and easily returns to the closed/operating position. The large rear door opens on hinges on the right side, allowing full access to regular maintenance points. The entire ROPS/FOPS assembly on the V330 Skid Loader tips rearward on a hydraulic lift for easy internal service access.
