Manitou Group has released the Mustang vertical-lift 4000V Skid-Steer Loader and the Gehl vertical-lift V400 Skid Loader.
The V400 and 4000V provide maximum capacity and a breakout force at 9,150 lbs.
The V 4000 and 4000V boast a rated operating capacity of 4,000 lbs. (1814 kg) and a true vertical lift height of 144” (3647 mm). The 4000V gets 99 hp (74 kW) from its Cummins engines.
The V4000 and 4000V come 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.
The V4000 and 4000V’s High system pressure, with optional high-flow of up to 40.8 gpm (154 L/min), are designed to handle virtually every high performance attachment. Standard Hydraglide ride control allows the lift arm to “float” when transporting loads, minimizing loss of material and offering increased operator comfort.
There is also new operator compartment features for both models. 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. An optional pressurized cab enclosure with sound reduction material and a rear mounted air filter provides a cleaner and quieter operating environment.
