The Man­i­tou Group has an­nounced it will be bring­ing the Gehl back­hoe loader range in Ocea­nia, start­ing with the Gehl BL818S 4WD

There are five mod­els in the Gehl back­hoe range and Man­i­tou says they’ve been tai­lored to the con­di­tions ex­pe­ri­enced in the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion. The first model to go on sale in Aus­tralia will be the Gehl BL818S 4WD, which ex­pected to ar­rive in the very near fu­ture.

“The Gehl back­hoe loader is a no-frills back­hoe that is proven in the world’s harsh­est tem­per­a­tures and en­vi­ron­ments,” Man­i­tou Aus­tralia man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Stu­art Walker says.

“It’s a ma­chine that is de­pend­able, of­fers high level of per­for­mance and, when it comes to value, it blows the mar­ket away.”

The 7.5-tonne BL818S is pow­ered by a 67kW Tier 3A Perkins en­gine. The loader has a side shift­mounted back­hoe with an ex­tend­able arm, and a max­i­mum dig depth of 2602mm. The BL818 uses a Car­raro power shut­tle transmission with four for­ward and four re­verse gears.

Hy­draulic power is sup­plied through a

142L/min Cas­s­apa pump which de­liv­ers around 225 bar of pres­sure to the bucket, which trans­lates to around 4756kgf of break­out force. The hy­draulic sys­tem has two work modes – econ­omy and power – that are se­lectable by choos­ing sin­gle or twin pumps re­spec­tively.

The back­hoe has a fully ROPS/FOPS op­er­a­tors’ cab with air-con­di­tion­ing and sus­pen­sion seat. Hy­drauli­cally as­sisted steer­ing helps the BL818S achieve a turn­ing cir­cle of 11.1 me­tres, mak­ing it suit­able for mid-sized work sites.

The 2235mm-wide loader and back­hoe buck­ets have a heaped ca­pac­ity of around one cu­bic me­tre each.
