V420 Skid Loader


Gehl V420

The Gehl V420 skid loader is a shining example of Gehl’s superior innovation and well thought-out product development.

  • The re-designed chassis aids in superior weight distribution, which further enhances stability.
  • Thick steel plating and heavy-duty pins and bushings strengthen the loader for heavy-duty work.
  • Electronic engine control and electronic foot and electronic hand throttles allow operation at partial throttle, reducing sound levels and fuel consumption (not available with hand/foot controls).
Height to Hinge Pin - Fully Raised (mm) 144" (3653)
Travel Speed with Standard Two-Speed (km/hr) 10.7 mph (17.3)

Operator's Cabin

The operator’s compartment on the V420 skid loader provides a safe and comfortable working environment for operators of all sizes.

  • Cab forward design enhances the view to the bucket. Level II FOPS is standard equipment.
  • Standard mechanical suspension seat and optional air-ride suspension seat provide enhanced levels of comfort.
  • New side-folding restraint bar and armrests with multiple adjustments enhance operator safety and comfort.
  • Extra-large side screens combined with a low-profile lift arm design provide a wide field-of-view to the side work areas.
  • Optional pressurized sealed cab enclosure with sound reduction material and rear-mounted air filter provide a cleaner and quieter operating environment.
  • Domed, wide-view glass door option reduces glare and provides optimal visibility to the lift arm, work tool and front work area. Large top, front window provides a clear view of the lift arm in its higher lift positions.
  • Dome light, cup holder, 12-volt socket and storage tray.
  • LCD display replaces gauges and is customizable to user preference.

Gehl V420 Hydraulics

When maximum hydraulic power is needed to run demanding attachments, the V420 Skid Loader is equipped with the tools to get the job done right.

  • High system pressure delivers more hydraulic muscle to power demanding attachments and deliver superior lifting and breakout forces.
  • 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.
  • Standard Hydraglide™ ride control system allows the lift arm to “float” when transporting loads, minimizing loss of material, and increased operator comfort.
  • Lift cylinders incorporate cushioning for smoother operation when lowering the lift arm.
  • Pilot-controlled hydrostatic transmission with direct engine coupling provides high operating efficiency.
High-Flow Hydraulics - Option (L/min) 40.8 gpm (185.5)

Lift Arm

Gehl V420 Vertical Lift Arm

The V420 skid loader vertical-lift arm design was created for maximum reach, superior strength and optimal operator visibility.

  • Low-profile lift arm design provides outstanding forward and side visibility.
  • Single-plane lift arm design features a heavy-duty timing link, upper-rear channel support and large diameter pivot pins, providing best-in-class vertical and lateral strength and rigidity, as well as 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.

  • Swing-out cooler provides improved access to engine bay area.
  • Entire cabin structure tilts rearward with a gas strut/spring 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.
  • Cabin filter is located on the top of the operator structure allowing it to pull more clean, fresh air and less debris.
  • Rear side panels can be removed with the lift arm in the raised or lowered position.
  • Hydraulic tank dipstick allows for simple and fast hydraulic fluid checks.
  • Check engine coolant quickly through the handy sight gauge.
