    I stopped and got to take a look at the Mustang 2700V today. I didn't get a chance to try it out but definitely would like to sometime. I thought the cab was nice and the specs look pretty good. What do you think?

    I think they put the hydraulic ports on the wrong side of the loader arms, or do they just appear to be sticking up too high?

    I like the looks of the machine, but I agree with Ron on the hydraulic couplers. You shoudn't have to step over hoses to get in the door.

    With High flow it puts them on both sides. They do the same thing with Gehl which is the same thing. If you look close you can see on the close side the silver just sticking up above the arm.

    Stuve what is the operating weight on this? Gehl came out with the V270 last year and begining of Feb rolled out the larger V330 so I would think mustand will roll out a v3300?

    I like the vertical lift of these.

    Last night I just couldn't get the other pictures of it to load but will try again. I think the 2700V is around 8000 pounds? I wonder how much difference the 2700V is to the 3300V? Probably not enough to justify the extra they want.

    I still can't get the picture of the front to load but this machine had high flow so the hookups were on both sides.

    the 3300V/ v330 (Gehl) is 1000lbs more operating weight and 600lbs more ROC than the 2700V/ V270

    I like the setup. I am gonna look at trading in for the V270 in a year. My 5640 is oil cooled and the year after I bought mine they went to liquid cooled that I hear runs a bit better and I like the vertical lift. Seems like a long machine atleast longer than mine so my VTS might not switch over.

    The VTS is really long, I forget how much longer it is compared to my Case but it has a lot of track on the ground. It was 78.5" wide track to track so you could fit on a regular trailer. The lap bar was interesting, it tipped down and had some adjustments. Overall I thought it was a machine I would like to try out given the chance.

    Newswede, the 330/3300 is that much heavier? I had looked real quick at the dimensions and lift height and thought it was the same but should have looked at all the specs. :)

    the 330/ 3300 is 9010lbs operating weight and 3300 ROC I noticed the lap bar different and I noticed the speaker for a radio are moved down to either side of the seat. The rounded front window is nice too and must be the HVAC on the back of the cab. Best of all an integrated cup holder!
    I have to say some nice changes and development on a brand that gets picked on because it isn't one of the "popular" brands.

    We bought a 2700v new 3 years ago,it now has 2050hr on. its been the worst investment I ever made. Broke front cylinder once mustang didn't stand good for it there 600 bucks .had lots of trouble with emissions, and censors turbo blew. Dumped a lot of money in this machine. Bought a JD just so we can keep going while mustang in the in-law bought new mustang around the same time. And had same issues they look nice and drive nice.... But what is that when there down half the time
