    Nice I have a Gehl 5640 great machines and easy to service and great pricing. Did you look at the new V270? I am looking at one of those for next year. I like the vertical lift.

    Defintely post more pics.

    I will get some more pictures up later. I did not look at the V270, mainly because I dont think you can backdrag with a push box with the vertical lift.

    Why not? just works on 2 pivot points as opposed to one to make it easier on loading trucks. Don't see why back dragging would be a problem?

    Two years ago I had to rent a New Holland for a week while are gehl was in for repairs, and we could not use the back drag blade on the pusher, so I am assuming that this would be the same for Gehl's vertical lift machine. I could be wrong though, as I never really asked about it.
