THE GEHL Company will no longer manufacture hay and forage tools or feed-making equipment at its plant in West Bend, WI. Gehl recently announced plans to discontinue its agricultural implement lines, due to the declining number of traditional dairy farms. Gehl does promise to provide parts and service support for the ag implement product lines. It will close its implement manufacturing operations by this summer.

Gehl now will focus on its growing compact equipment lines that include skid loaders, track loaders, compact excavators, all-wheel steer loaders and the CT series telescopic handlers. For more information, contact Gehl at 262/334-9461 or visit
