Gehl Company is a United States-based corporation headquartered in West Bend, Wisconsin, USA. Founded by Louis Lucas in 1859, Gehl is a manufacturer of heavy equipment used worldwide in construction and agricultural markets. Their product line includes skid steer loaders, as well as asphalt pavers, compact excavators and telehandlers.[2] Gehl is also North America's largest non-tractor maker of agricultural machinery. [3] The Gehl Company also owns the rights to manufacture Mustang skid steer loaders, and distributes Takeuchi Compact Track Loaders under the names Gehl and Mustang. Gehl was acquired in September 2008 for $30 a share by the French equipment maker Manitou.[4] This allows the company to expand its telehandler market into the US and enter several new equipment markets.[2][5] The company was delisted from NASDAQ under its ticker symbol GEHL.

In 2017, Gehl began marketing Backhoe loaders under their brand after parent company Manitou purchased the Indian-Terex Vectra line from Terex.
