    It appears that it was rode hard and put up wet every day it was ever used. It looks like it was never taken care, probably was not serviced when it needed it.

    I did not feel like registering but I have operated and worked on a couple of Gehl machines and they seemed well built and relativly trouble free.

    Just to sum it up, 4 year old Mustang, 1300 hours:

    Doesn't give much testament to Mustangs reliability.

    Gehl/Mustang excavators are made in Austria I believe. I think it is an example of abuse rather than poor quality at least I would hope so. If you don't buy grease and keep up with preventive maintenance your excavator could look like that one no matter what brand it is.
