S K I D S T E E R S M ustang began in the 19th century as the Owatonna Mfg. Co., an agricultural implement manufacturer that has since grown into a 21st century compact equipment powerhouse. Mustang is the second-oldest skid steer loader manu- facturer in the world, building its first skid steer in 1965 — the Mustang Series 1000. Mustang currently offers a broad range of 10 skid steer loader models. Raw power, which is considered a Mustang hallmark, is provided by high-output, high-torque engines on every model. Hundreds of attachments are easily interchangeable to expand the uses of a Mustang skid steer loader. The small- to medium-frame Mustang skid steer models include the 1050R, 1350R, 1500R and 1650R. With rated operating capacities ranging from 1,050 to 1,650 lbs, these radial-lift skid steer loaders are characterized by their high performance in a compact frame. With engines rated from 33.1 to 68.4 hp, there is ample power to complete the most demanding applications. Mustang 1900R, 2200R, 2600R, 2700V NXT2, 3300V NXT2 and 4200V large-frame models complete the skid steer loader range. These workhorses are loaded with features that other manufacturers consider optional, says Mustang. Standard hydraulic self-leveling for performance and mechanical suspension seats for comfort are two examples of many. Mustang models 1900R, 2200R and 2600R are radial-lift- path models, while the 2700V NXT2, 3300V NXT2 and 4200V are vertical-lift- path models. The 4200V is the newest and most powerful Mustang skid loader. With an operating weight of 11,665 lbs, it is the largest skid loader offered on the market today. A vertical-lift path of almost 12 ft provides dumping and loading performance. While Mustang's patented Hydraglide system delivers a smoother ride with less material spillage. Performance is enhanced with high-flow auxiliary hydraulics that offer hydraulic flows up to 41 gpm. The Mustang 4200V is the ultimate tool carrier — coming standard with the features needed to operate attachments such as mulching heads, cold planers, rock wheels and much more, says the company. All Mustang loaders are equipped with universal, mechanical, quick- attach plates for accepting a range of attachments. A hydraulic Power-A- Tach system is optional to facilitate easy change-overs. Auxiliary hydraulic flow is standard, as is self-leveling on many models. Operator comfort and safety are provided through a standard Level 2 ROPS structure. The roomy, quiet operator area can be configured to operator preference through a variety of options, including heat and air conditioning. With a wide variety of Edge attachments available, Mustang skid loaders are easily transformed for any project need. 33 S K I D S T E E R S Mustang Building High-Performance Skid Steers for More than 50 Years Advice to Buyers "Skid steer applications vary widely and will drive your model and option selection, so have your current and po- tential future needs in mind when you begin shopping around," says Nathan Ryan, product manager of Mustang skid and track loaders. "For example, for use in urban con- struction, mining or ship trim- ming, level 2 FOPS protection is an important option."
