Mustang’s 2109 Skid Steer Offers 5 Percent More Torque

Tue March 27, 2007 - National Edition

Mustang has added a new feature to its 2109 skid steer — a 99-hp (74 kW) Cummins diesel engine. The Tier II emissions-certified, turbo-charged engine offers 305 ft. lbs. of torque — nearly 5 percent more than the previous 2109 engine.

In addition to more torque and performance, the Cummins B4.5T direct-injected engine offers easier access to important maintenance points, including the dipstick, oil fill and air cleaner.

The conventional liquid-cooled design requires oil/filter changes at 500-hour intervals after the initial 50-hour service. Service on the Cummins engine is widely available through the Cummins engine support network.

A grid-heater glow system provides easy preheat capabilities, helping operators in cold environments get to work quickly even on the coldest of days, according to the manufacturer.

“This model has enjoyed great success since its launch in 2004,” said Mustang marketing manager Doug Snorek. “This additional component is expected to amplify customer satisfaction by increasing muscle on what is already today’s most powerful machine.”
