Gehl is breaking new ground with its range of versatile, innovative and efficient backhoe loaders. Designed to increase your productivity and profitability, these powerful workhorses have a host of new features aimed at enhancing comfort, reducing driver fatigue and aiding productivity.


Gehl BL818S  Performance



The BL844-CM is built with a robust lift arm that incorporates performance and durability.

  • A heavy duty machine needs a transmission and axels to match.
  • Gehl backhoe loaders use a 4 speed synchro-shuttle transmission with a modulated clutch pack which delivers excellent traction and smooth forward & reverse shifting during laoading.
  • Front axle that allows for 16 degrees of oscillation and sealed king pins, you have a highly durable machine that delivers lower maintenance costs.

Power with Fuel Efficiency

  • Standard 92hp Perkins or 90hp KOEL turbo charged engines delivers outstanding power, torque and fuel efficiency without wasting fuel.
  • Low fuel and maintenance costs ultimately mean higher earnings with our products.

Better Bucket Mean Greater Performance

  • The backhoe buckets offer durability and productivity.
  • Our buckets have a maximum rotation of 194 degrees  that allow operators to pick up more material with less pillage.
  • Self-leveling buckets improve stability, lessen spillage and come in a range of sizes including the popular 7-in-1 bucket that allows you to tackle a wide range of jobsites tasks.

Standard and Extended Dipper

  • Users have the opportunity to choose between a standard and optional extended dipper.
  • Standard dipper has a 4.74 m maximum dig depth
  • Optional extended dipper increases the dig depth by 1 m, thereby allowing the operator to dig faster with less repositioning and resulting in a better ROI.

Side Mount and Center Mount Models

  • Side shift models allow for a greater reach and lesser amount of machine repositioning.
  • Center mount models come with butterfly stabilizers for deeper penetration
