Mustang Introduces 4000V Skid Steer Loader
Mustang introduced the all-new, vertical-lift 4000V Skid Steer Loader. The 4000V has a rated operating capacity of 4,000 lbs. (1814 kg), a vertical lift height of 144-inches (3647 mm), and an industry leading 99 hp (74 kW) from its Cummins engines.
The all-new 4000V is a true vertical lift machine, which means the lift path follows a vertical line as opposed to an “S” shaped path. Lifting up to 144 inches (3647 mm), the 4000V can easily load high trailers and trucks.
“The 4000V allows Mustang to fulfill its customer’s needs for high powered, high capacity skid steers,” said Sean Bifani, product manager. “Paired with its high lifting height, the 4000V enters the high-end of the skid steer loader market, where product options are minimal. The 4000V provides maximum capacity and the industry’s largest breakout force at 9,150 lbs.”
The 4000V comes equipped with a powerful Cummins diesel engine providing 326 ft-lbs. (442 Nm) of torque and 99 gross horsepower (74 kW). The hydraulic fan with swing-out cooler reduces fuel consumption, reduces noise levels and provides improved service access. All daily maintenance and service checks can be performed through the large rear engine hood.
When maximum hydraulic power is needed to run attachments, the high system pressure, with optional high-flow of up to 40.8 gpm (154 L/min), is designed to handle virtually every attachment. Standard Hydraglide ride control allows the lift arm to “float” when transporting loads, minimizing loss of material and offering increased operator comfort.
The new state-of-the-art operator’s compartment features ergonomics and comfort. The standard level II ROPS/FOPS cab-forward design optimizes the view to the bucket; a side-folding restraint bar with adjustable armrests increases operator safety and comfort; and an optional pressurized cab enclosure with sound reduction material and a rear-mounted air filter provides a cleaner and quieter operating environment.
