    Wow, I didn't know Mustang had a factory in Waco. Loader looks really nice, with nice capacity. Hope it sells well.

    It's been a Manitou Factory for a long long time, with the acquisition of Mustang they have moved quite a few models of articulating wheel loader production there, they build a 54" wide small one too, but it's export only, The 608/708 are for USA sales as well as for export. MADE IN TEXAS !!!!!!
