A smooth operator

When it comes to the latest in farm machinery, "comfort" is the key word. Willmar Manufacturing claims that its Wrangler 4300 is no exception. The company has redesigned its loader to put the driver in comfortable control and increase the machine's efficiency on the job.

Power up. The engine has been replaced with an 83-hp Deutz diesel engine with a reconfigured hydrostatic drive system, which the manufacturer claims is smoother running and cleaner. The machine has a 2,250-lb. operating capacity with 19-gal./min. auxiliary hydraulic flow. Its versatility is obvious with its 101-ft. dump clearance, 35-ft. reach and standard quick-attach system.

The 4-wd machine with its two-piece frame features articulated steering for a tighter turning radius.

Redesigned controls. The redesigned operator platform has new four-post ROPS for strength, im-proved visibility and operator comfort.

The platform features a fully adjustable seat, ergonomically de-signed controls and open view to help ease operator fatigue. The joystick controls, located at the operator's right hand, offer precise control of loader and power-out functions.

The Wrangler comes with a standard light package that includes two halogen driving lights, two clearance lights, four amber flashers and one rear flood light.

Option packed. Options abound on the Wrangler and include standard 42-in. pallet forks. Buyers can choose a 26-cu.-ft. bucket for dirt and general purposes, a 36-cu.-ft. bucket for vegetables, or a 39- or 45-cu.-ft. bucket for light material.

Buyers also have the option of purchasing an enclosed cab featuring integral ROPS, heater/defroster, front and rear wipers and the standard light package.

Retail price for the Wrangler 4300, equipped with the 26-cu.-ft. utility bucket, is $34,400. A package deal that includes the 26-cu.-ft. utility bucket and pallet fork is $34,981.

The Wrangler is marked with Willmar's new black and green logo, which will appear on the company's complete line of products.
