mustang/gehl track loaders

We are looking at getting another ctl, currently have tl 150, like a 130 size. I m looking at gehl or mustang because of shorter cab height. I have heard that the ac and heater or not up to par in these machines. Anybody running these with ac and heaters? how do they perform?

The Tak, Gehls and Mustangs all have the same cab height?

I don't know how the different height in cab makes for less of an HVAC system, I find my Takeuchi A/C to be a few degrees colder than an arctic outflow wind and the heater to be just shy of death valley.

They list all of them at 84 inches height but they say the TL130 with cab is 88 inches without cab 84 inches?

What is your height on yours Ron.

90" to the top of the cab.

More people own the Gehl/ Mustangs around here than the Tak's. Never heard a issue with the A/C in them. When I bought my TL140 in 07 the Gehl 70 with the swing out door was a few inches shorter

Honestly if you can get past the ride, they are a nice unit. Seeing Swanny's videos with the NextGen tracks and hearing from my Mustang salesman's experience with other guys running some different tracks is they are great. I used the Mtl16(It's also for sale ) this fall when it was cold and I think it heated up great, it has vents under the seat so my feat were nice without wearing boots. I can't say how the air was, just dropped the side windows and ran the fan and was fine. Didn't Bobcat Ron re-charge his air and it was all good?

Yup, had it recharged just before the Summer heat wave. Damn coldest A/C by far, even Cat's excavators don't have cold air that chilly. I swear sometimes my hairy nipples felt like they were going to freeze and crack open.
