The replacements

Printer-friendly version

Four compact excavator models—the 5003ZT, 6003, 7503ZT and 8003 (Circle 904)—have recently been introduced by Mustang Manufacturing Co. of Owatonna, Minn. The new Mustang excavators will replace former models 5002, 6002 and 8002, while the model 7503ZT is new to the Mustang product line. The 5003ZT and 7503ZT models feature a zero-tail-swing design, creating improved maneuverability and better sight lines for the operator. The 6003 and 8003 models boast a short-tail design that helps maneuverability and sight lines while maintaining superior lifting capacity.
The new side-mounted engine compartment on each model was designed with a built-in barrier that limits the engine noise and vibration that can sometimes reach the cab. In addition to increased comfort, the new models have been built to ease maintenance—lubrication points on the machines are color-coded to indicate how frequently the operator needs to grease those points.
