Mustang has released the all-new mid-frame R Series Radial-Lift Skid Steer Loaders. These include three new models – the 1350R (replacing the 2041), the 1500R (replacing the 2044), and the 1650R (replacing the 2054).
These skid loaders feature an all-new operator station with an integrated digital display, new load arm design with increased visibility, Yanmar-powered Tier IV engines and several serviceability enhancements. While we are sad to see the end of the T-Bar, the machines are available in hand/foot and joystick configurations with excellent controllability. They feature thumb controlled auxiliary hydraulics for maximum precision and infinitely adjustable flow control. Pressure-relieving hydraulic couplers make attachment changes simple and safe.
A cab-forward design and lowered rear towers deliver unmatched visibility to the bucket edge and rear of the machine. The optional pressurized cab enclosure, with sound reduction material and a rear-mounted air filter, provides a cleaner, quieter, climate-controlled working environment.
The Yanmar engines incorporate DPF (diesel particulate filter) technology which does not require fuel after-treatments, such as urea. With maximum torque ratings from 146 Nm on the 1350R and 1500R to 241 Nm on the 1650R, these machines are equipped with the power needed to tackle the most demanding jobs. Mustang has confirmed that the new models have as much if not more breakout than their predecessor models. These legendary breakout forces deliver optimal digging and lifting performance. Faster cycle times further enhance productivity on the jobsite.
