The 550Z from Mustang-Gehl Company comes with a 47.6 hp Yanmar Tier 4-certified, turbocharged diesel engine with an electronic throttle for precise control. Cost savings are made possible with the eco mode and auto deceleration features. When activated by the flip of a switch inside the cab, eco mode will reduce the engine speed by 10 percent without sacrificing power, while auto deceleration decreases the engine speed to idle after four seconds without hydraulic movement. These two features provide a combined result of a 20 percent reduction in fuel consumption. An angle blade with float and bolt-on cutting edge is a factory-installed option. Using the rocker switch on the blade lever, the hydraulic angle blade can be angled 25 degrees to push material aside as the machine moves forward, eliminating the need for repetitive repositioning. The blade can be simultaneously angled and raised or lowered to reduce the amount of time backfilling. 262/334-9461; www.mustangmfg.com.
