Vertical lift skid-steer loaders are handy to have around and two new models from Mustang are ready to work. The new 2700V NXT2 and the 3300V NXT2 are powered by Tier 4 Yanmar 72hp diesel engines and meet the latest regulations.
A key feature of the new machines is a selectable self-leveling option and an upgraded cab. These two machines fall into the large-frame category. The 2700V NXT2 has a rated operating capacity of 2,700 pounds and the 3300V NXT2 is rated at 3,300 pounds. Lift height for the 2700V NXT2 is 10-feet, 10-inches, and for the 3300 NXT2 lift height is 10-feet, 11-inches.
The new Yanmar engines feature diesel particulate filter technology which does not require additional fluids for operation. Maximum torque is 217 ft.-lbs. The new machines also feature a fully-customizable digital in-cab display that provides coolant, fuel, battery, environmental, engine regeneration and other system information in real time. And that self-leveling option offers an in-cab on-off switch.
The forward cab placement and the roomy design offer operator comfort, and provides the operator with a solid view of the work to be done. Joystick and hand/foot control towers are also fully adjustable. Learn more by visiting www.mustangmfg.com or call 262-334-6612.
