OWATONNA, Minn. (March 3, 2008) ” Mustang today announced the addition of a fourth compact track loader to its product portfolio the most diversified compact equipment lineup in today™s market.
The new compact track loader, Model MTL312, is the most compact of the Mustang track loader lineup, which also includes models MTL16, MTL20 and MTL25. The agile MTL312 shares the durable, comfortable and serviceable characteristics of its big brothers.
As with all Mustang track loaders, the MTL312 has a dedicated track design, meaning the unit is built as a track loader with a heavy-duty undercarriage system versus being built as a skid-steer loader with a bolt-on undercarriage. The result of this exclusive engineering is a stronger track loader. With an operating weight of 5,952 lbs. and a width of just under 58 inches, the MTL312 gives operators the tight squeeze they need… outside the operator”s compartment.
Inside is a different story because this compact Mustang track loader offers operators a spacious, not to mention comfortable, work station. A finger tip-control joystick system promises a fatigue-free, high-productivity day on the job.
For operators in dusty environments or extreme climates, an optional, pressurized cab enclosure, complete with air-conditioning and heater, is available. The enclosed cab includes a swing-out door with a wiper/washer system and sliding side windows. An emergency engine shutdown system and tilt-back ROPS/FOPS combine to prevent unnecessary or excessive downtime for owners of the MTL312.
Mustang Manufacturing Company currently markets a product portfolio consisting of eight skid-steer loaders, twelve compact excavators, eight telehandlers, four all-wheel-steer loaders and three compact track loaders. Mustang distributes the entire range of these products throughout North and South America, and exports skid-steer loaders to 39 countries worldwide.
