Operator’s Cabin

  • Gehl Z80 Cabin
  • The Z80 comes with a fully enclosed cab as standard equipment providing ultimate in operator comfort.

    • Standard cab enclosure with heat or heat/air-conditioning system provides protection in extreme weather conditions.
    • Adjustable suspension seat and armrests provide personalized comfort.
    • Excellent visibility in all directions allows safe and efficient operation. Rear mirror provides a view of the back and side of the machine for additional safety.
    • Work lights and integrated boom light enhances the operator’s view after dark.
    • The cab is mounted on five silicon oil filled iso-mounts, which reduce cab noise and vibration to the operator.


  • Gehl Z80 Controls
  • The controls on the Z80 are ergonomically designed and easy to use.

    • Large travelling pedals are easy to press and allow confident, reliable work.
    • Pilot operated joystick controls are operated by simple wrist movements, reducing fatigue during a long workday.
    • One-way auxiliary functions can be controlled by joystick buttons, allowing optimal control of high-flow attachments such as compactors or breakers.
    • The proportional control mechanism switch vastly enhances attachment performance, allowing the operator to set the flow for optimal attachment performance.
    • The operator can easily select from ISO or standard operating control patterns with the flip of a mechanical lever.


  • Gehl Z80 Boom
  • Rugged, high-strength boom incorporates features to protect and extend the life of moving parts and components.

    • Precision welded boom is constructed with thick side plates that are reinforced by contoured transition plates.
    • Heavy-duty sliding cylinder guards protect exposed cylinder rods from damage.
    • Integrated boom light illuminates the work area and allows for safe and effective operation after dark.
    • Reliable single pin boom mount design for optimal durability and component life.


  • Gehl Z80 Undercarriage
  • The undercarriage of the Z80 was designed with serviceability and longevity in mind.

    • Wide track gauge and an offset track drive system increase stability without adding to overall track width.
    • Staggered tread and mandrel design combined with shorter track pitch reduces vibration.
    • Long tracks provide a smoother ride over rough terrain.
    • Tracks are short-pitched to reduce wear, fatigue and damage.
    • Angled crawler frame reduces soil buildup on the undercarriage, extending the life of rollers and tracks.


  • Gehl Z80 Engine
  • The Z80 is built around a powerful, reliable emission-certified Yanmar diesel engine.

    • Proven technology provides reliable operation and a fuel efficient system.
    • ECO mode reduces engine RPM by 10% without sacrificing power when activated, saving fuel when full speed is not necessary.
    • Easy-starting, even in cold weather without the need for block heaters or starting fluid.
    • Auto deceleration improves fuel economy and lowers noise and emissions levels when activated by reducing engine speed to idle after four seconds without hydraulic movement.
