Compact Loaders

Level the playing field on uneven ground. Take advantage of the improved performance of the GEHL RT255 track loader to increase your productivity. A standard feature for all of our track loaders is IdealTrax, an automatic track tensioning system that reduces maintenance, increases track life and saves you money. Tree removal, snow management, trenching or even excavating are all possible with the high flow hydraulics of the RT255. This unit comes standard with HydraGlide ride control, making for smoother travels when carrying a load.
