* 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" (3647)

Travel Speed with Standard Two-Speed (km/hr) 11.2 mph (18)


Operator's Cabin

The operator’s compartment on the V400 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.



Controls on the Gehl V400 skid loader are ergonomically designed to reduce operator fatigue and increase productivity.

* Infinitely adjustable proportional auxiliary hydraulics.

* Hydraloc™ system applies brakes whenever the operator raises restraint bar, leaves the operator’s seat or switches off the ignition.



The Gehl V400 skid loader comes equipped with the power to tackle virtually any job.

* Hydraulic fan with swing-out cooler reduces fuel consumption, reduces noise levels, and provides improved service access.

* Automatic grid heater engine intake heating system provides superior cold-weather starting.

* Engine has conventional water/ethylene glycol liquid-cooled design.

* Engine servicing points are readily accessible.

* Dual element filter and pre cleaner are standard.
