Gehl Introduces the New RS10 Telescopic Handler
The boom of the new RS10 telescopic handler has a welded box-section design, which it shares with the proven Gehl DL Series telescopic handlers, which means it is stronger than comparable competitive models. The 10,000 pound operating capacity is achieved without the use of outriggers or fluid-filled tires, although outriggers are optional for added stability.
The patented Personnel Work Platform (PWP) Safety System is available as an option on the new RS10 model. The PWP System allows the use of ANSI/ITSDF B56.6 - compliant personnel work platforms, which are commonly used by framers, roofers and siding contractors. The PWP System adds versatility, making many jobs almost as easy as working at ground level.
A rear axle stabilizer system improves stability by locking the rear axle in position whenever the boom is raised more than 60 degrees, the parking brake is applied, or the PWP System is activated. Other design features include a strong frame with reinforced C-channels, internal wet disc brakes for better stopping ability and longer life, and a SAHR (Spring-Applied, Hydraulic-Release) parking brake, which automatically applies the parking brake when the engine is shut off, or manually by pressing a rocker switch.
The ROPS/FOPS canopy and cab provides a spacious operator's environment with pilot-assisted controls that are easy-to-reach and easy-to-operate, allowing the operator to perform precise placements and increase productivity. The view from the cab is a full 360 degrees. For applications that require operator protection from the weather, the RS10 can be equipped with the optional glass-enclosed cab with heater/defroster. A suspension seat is another option. To further increase the productivity of this machine, a transmission declutch feature and a work light package can be added.
The new RS10 telescopic handler is powered by a turbocharged diesel engine with 115 horsepower (86 kW). The RS10 is equipped with a four-speed power-shift transmission, three steering modes and a quick-attach work tool-mounting system.
The Gehl RS Series telescopic handlers are positioned in the North American market to provide excellent return on investment for independent rental operations and telescopic handler buyers.
