Mustang by Manitou small-frame compact track loader is ideal for confined jobsites
"Mustang by Manitou offers solutions for even more applications with the introduction of the 1350RT track loader," said Aaron Haynes, global product manager for track loaders, Manitou Group. "It's great for confined jobsites, and the pilot control joystick provides operators with true one-to-one control for a highly responsive compact machine."
The Mustang by Manitou 1350RT has an overall width of 57 inches (1,448 mm), height of 76 inches (1,930 mm) and lift capacity of 1,350 pounds (612 kg) at 35 percent tipping load. It features a 46.6-hp Yanmar engine that utilizes automatic regeneration and zero fuel additives.
This new model is built on the design of the Mustang by Manitou 1350R skid loader, and the company says that it provides superior weight distribution, stability and tractive effort. In addition, the cab-forward design has a Level II FOPS and excellent visibility on all sides of the machine.
The IdealTrax track tensioning system on the 1350RT saves on maintenance and track replacement costs by automatically tensioning the tracks when the engine is on. This process eliminates over-tensioning and the company says that it extends the life of the tracks up to 15 percent. Track tension is released when the engine is turned off, reducing strain on sprockets and bearings. With IdealTrax there is no need to manually tension the tracks and changes on the jobsite are quick and simple.
In addition, the Mustang by Manitou 1350RT track loader provides versatility on the jobsite with an exclusive Multi-Tach attachment mounting system that is compatible with most allied track loader attachments. The Mustang by Manitou 1350RT is customizable with additional features including a fully integrated backup camera and a HydraGlide system for a smoother ride and less material loss. An additional self-levelling option keeps the attachment level while the unit is performing the lift function.
The addition of the Mustang by Manitou 1350RT brings the full track loader offering for North America up to ten models that range from a small to large frame with operating capacities up to 3,200 pounds.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
