I can give you some basic information. Powered by a Perkins 4 cylinder diesel engine, mechanical self leveling. About 1200 pound rated lift capacity. Controls were Gehl's T-Bar, hands only controls. Left T-Bar controls all drive and steering functions, right T-Bar controls The boom and bucket. The final few years had some major revisions. A different Perkins engine and Hydraulic Servo assist on the steering. The last year of production is 1991. They were replaced by the 25 series. Good basic loaders. Can't speak for your local dealer but Gehl tries very hard to support their products. Hope this helps.
