Gehl Telescopic Handler - RS10-55 GEN:2

Max Lift Capacity - 10,000 lbs., Max Lift Height - 55' 0", Horsepower - 120 hp

The model RS10-55 GEN:2 is built with high quality components, which enhance performance on all levels. The telescopic handler is similar to a forklift, but it comes with a boom to allow the machine to reach new heights. Perfect for an agriculture or industry project, the RS10-55 GEN:2 can reach up to 55'.


  • Boom tip lift hook option is now available as a factory-installed option or field installed option.
  • Proven welded box-section boom design makes the boom stronger than competitive models.
  • Well-thought-out cylinder design provides one of the fastest cycle times in the industry.
  • Strong frame with reinforced C-channels performs well under heavy lifting conditions.
  • Frame leveling feature adjusts 10-degrees to the left and right, enhancing performance on uneven terrain.
  • Internal wet disc brakes provide excellent stopping ability and long life.
  • Dual-element air filter protects the engine from airborne contaminants, increasing engine performance and longevity.


Safety and efficiency are two of the most important factors on the jobsite. The RS10-55 GEN:2 provides the tools to achieve both effectively.

  • Three steering modes – 4-wheel, 2-wheel and crab – enhance maneuverability and are easily changed by the flip of a switch.
  • Tight turning radius of only 13’ 10” (4.22 m) is one of the tightest in its class.
  • SAHR (spring-applied, hydraulic-release) parking brake is applied automatically when the engine is shut off, or by pressing a rocker switch.

Remote Boom Control

The Remote Boom Control option allows operators to control boom and engine functions from outside the cab.

  • Remote Boom Control can raise/lower and extend/retract the boom, as well as start/stop the engine from the work platform or outside the cab.
  • Personnel Work Platform System allows the use of ANSI/ITSDF B56.6-compliant personnel work platforms for safety and efficiency.


The RS10-55 GEN:2 Telescopic Handlers provides the power to get work done effectively and efficiently.

  • Dana four-speed power-shift transmission(4-forward/3-reverse speeds) is easy to maintain.
  • Limited-slip differential in the front axle provides additional traction in muddy and unimproved surfaces.
  • Transmission clutch cut-out is switchable, and when activated allows faster engine acceleration and more power to the hydraulic system when the brake pedal is depressed.


The model RS10-55 GEN:2 makes no exceptions when it comes to hydraulic performance. These machines can take virtually anything.

  • Dual-function, pilot-assisted joystick is standard equipment.
  • Optional tri-function, pilot-assisted joystick allows the operator to set variable tilt and auxiliary function speeds.
  • Auto-leveling feature keeps loads level when raising/lowering the boom.
