Operator's Cab

Operators world-wide will find state-of-the-art ergonomics, unsurpassed visibility and ease of operation.

Visibility

  • Fully adjustable steering column with center-mount instrumentation for easy operator reference.
  • A seven-way adjustable seat providing a comfortable ride for the operator.
  • Excellent 360-degree visibility is achieved by positioning the operator above instead of behind the load for safe operation and excellent view of the attachment.
  • Models feature comfortable and easy-to-access grab handles to assist entry and exit.
  • A complete cab enclosure option provides enhanced comfort and safety for all-day-long operation.
  • Cab doors have an extended-latch design, which allows latching in a slightly-open position for limited ventilation, per operator preference.
  • Standard cab models equipment includes heat, four working lights, wipers on front and rear windows, a cup holder and adjustable side mirrors.
  • Spacious surface window area offers excellent all-around visibility.
  • Generous sound absorbing material between the cab and engine compartment is standard with cab enclosure and suppresses sound levels.

Controls

The Mustang 608 Articulated Loader features simple-to-use controls at your finger tips. Even the most un-accustomed operator will be comfortable operating these loaders.

Steering

  • Multi-function joystick lever controls the lift arm, bucket, float, travel direction, differential lock and auxiliary hydraulic functions
  • Inching pedal allows operators to vary the ground speed while maintaining a fixed engine speed, to optimally run attachments while enabling precise control.
  • Engine speed can be conveniently controlled two ways: (1) with the right foot throttle or (2) with the convenient hand throttle, which also allows the ground speed to be controlled independently of engine speed.
  • Differential lock button on joystick increases traction for 100% effective engagement of axles.
  • 2-speed hydrostatic drive can be activated “on the go” by a switch on the joystick.

Engine

Mustang Articulated Loaders are equipped with industry-proven Yanmar diesel engines.

Engine

Make Yanmar
Model 4TNV98CT
Number of Cylinders 4
Power @ 2800 rpm 48 kW
Displacement 3.3 L





  • Powerful, quiet and efficient Tier IV-certified Yanmar diesel engines with excellent performance for all applications.
  • Excellent reputation for reliable cold-starting and smooth operation.

Maneuverability

Get into the tightest spaces with ease. The 650 goes anywhere and does almost everything.

608 Grapple

  • A heavy-duty articulating joint offers 45-degree turning angles each way and provides optimal maneuverability with a tight turning radius. Articulated steering has minimal affect on turf and ground surfaces and extends the life of the tires.
  • Chassis oscillates 10 degrees each way, for 20 degrees of total oscillation, to maintain traction by keeping the wheels on the ground on uneven terrain.
  • The tail follows where the front leads, providing excellent maneuverability. The bucket and tires follow a constant turn radius, so the rear of the loader follows the path of the front tires.
  • Narrow machine width allows access to tight, confined spaces that most skid loaders with comparable operating capacities cannot access.
  • High ground clearance allows the loaders to pass over objects in the work-path with ease.

Lift Arm

The lift arm on the 608 is designed to achieve maximum strength, excellent visibility and fast cycle times.

Mustang 608 Dirt

  • Linkage becomes recessed in the lift arm at full lift heights for protection when dumping into trucks/trailers and provides excellent forward visibility.
  • Linkage design allows for mechanical self-leveling action in both up and down directions.
  • Nitro-steel rods on the hydraulic cylinders resist abrasion, pitting, scratching and corrosion.
  • Excellent bucket dump angles at the mid- and top-ranges of the lift path as well as outstanding forward reach at mid-range.

Hydraulics

Power, performance and precision. Achieve this and more with superior hydraulics and handy time-saving features.

608 Sweeper

Work Hydraulic System Flow STD 70 L/min
High-Flow Auxiliary Hydraulics - optional  98.4 L/min
Work Hydraulic System Pressure 200 bar
Drive Hydraulic System Pressure 420 bar
Drive Hydraulic Reservoir Capacity 73.8 L




  • Two auxiliary hydraulic lines with flat-faced couplers power a variety of tools and make attachment changes easy.
  • Hydraulic hoses are nestled within the lift arms, keeping them out of the loader linkage “damage zone” during lifting and dumping operations.
  • Lift arm and bucket float features allow for “floating” of the lift arm for light scraping or rear-ward leveling actions. Bucket float is a special feature that adds control and more operator flexibility for operating certain attachments with only bucket float.

Serviceability

Reduced downtime is made possible by intelligent engineering and advanced design.

Service

  • Perform daily service checks with ease through the rear engine cover, which provides access to the engine, hydraulic reservoir filler and filter, radiator, and more.
  • Hydraulic components are provided with diagnostic test ports for easy access when required.
  • LCD display has menu screens with light indicators for electrical diagnostic checking.
