Lift Arm

Gehl RT165 Compact Track Loader Hydraulics

The robust lift-arm on the RT165 Compact Track Loader is designed for optimal strength, visibility and capacity.

  • Additional reach and increased dump height result in more efficient load placement and overall performance.
  • Low-profile design provides outstanding forward, rear and side visibility.
  • Simple "in-line" design increases structural integrity by eliminating the complex geometry and welding found on many competitive "offset" lift arm designs.
  • Front channel support and large diameter pivot pins provide exceptional lateral strength and rigidity.
  • Lift-arm incorporates dual bucket cylinders and two lift-arm stop blocks on the front of the main frame to evenly distribute digging forces.
Height to Hinge Pin - Fully Raised (mm) 119.6" (3038)
Reach - Fully Raised (mm) 25.3" (641)


Serviceability is very important to our customers. The RT165 is sure to exceed your service expectations.

  • Large, gas-spring assisted engine cover and over-sized, flush-mounted rear door allows full access on the rear of the machine for servicing and maintenance
  • Lockable compartments on the rear towers open to reveal the battery on the left and hydraulic tank on the right.
  • Entire ROPS/FOPS assembly tilts rearward with large gas-springs for easy internal service access.
  • Track rollers and idlers are sealed and require no maintenance.
  • Coded wiring takes the guesswork out of electrical system identification.
