High-Flow Auxiliary Hydraulics (L/min) 35 gpm (132.5)

Operator’s Cabin

The R260 has spacious operator stations with plenty of adjustability and enhanced comfort features that users have come to expect from Gehl.

  • Large Level II ROPS/FOPS is standard equipment.
  • New side-folding restraint bar and adjustable armrests enhance operator safety and comfort.
  • Adjustable control pods (joystick and hand/foot configurations) and an optional air-ride seat deliver outstanding comfort.
  • Cab forward design enhances view to the bucket edge. Lowered rear towers improve visibility to the rear of the machine.
  • Extra-large side screens, combined with the Gehl PowerView® 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, provides a cleaner, quieter, climate controlled operating environment.

Controls on the R260 incorporates intuitive design, state-of-the-art technology and plenty of options to suit the preference of any operator.

  • Four control options include T-Bar, Joystick, Dual-Hand, and Hand/Foot.
  • Auxiliary controls are located on the control grip in all control configurations for easy access.
  • Customizable integrated digital display provides coolant, fuel, battery, environmental and engine regeneration, and more information in real time.
  • Adjustable joystick control pods provide ease of operator control with minimal effort, reducing fatigue.
  • New upper-left and upper-right instrument panels provide easy readout and switch access.
  • Hydraloc™ system applies brakes whenever the operator raises the restraint bar, leaves the operator’s seat or switches off the ignition.


The R260 is equipped with a top-of-the-line Yanmar Tier IV engine that meets emissions standards and provides the muscle needed to tackle demanding jobs with ease.

  • The DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) system provides clean emissions without the need for additional fuel after-treatment additives.
  • The DPF requires regeneration to maintain optimal running conditions. This occurs passively as the machine is operated, but also requires occasional manual regeneration by the operator.
  • Regeneration is intuitively managed through the digital display and a clearly labeled rocker switch.
