Mustang introduced the all-new, vertical-lift 4000V skid-steer loader. The 4000V boasts a rated operating capacity of 4,000 pounds, a true vertical lift height of 144 inches, and 99 hp. 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 offered by competitive vertical-lift models. Lifting up to 144 inches, the 4000V can easily load high trailers and trucks. With an unmatched rated operating capacity, there are few jobs this powerful machine cannot handle.


“Mustang is excited to take the reigns as the world’s most powerful skid steer loader,” said Sean Bifani, product manager. “The 4000V allows Mustang to fulfill its customer’s needs for high powered, high capacity skid steers. 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. 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 demanding attachments, the 4000V skid-steer loader is equipped with the tools to get the job done right. High system pressure, with optional high-flow of up to 40.8 gpm (154 L/min), is 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.


The new state-of-the-art operator’s compartment features unsurpassed ergonomics and superior 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. An optional pressurized cab enclosure with sound reduction material and a rear-mounted air filter provides a cleaner and quieter operating environment.
