A 260 hp Lycoming IO-540 powers the M-9-260; the M-9-235 runs on a 235 hp Lycoming O-540 that can burn mogas. Both airplanes can seat up to five people and carry 2,800 pounds of gross weight. Each has Maule’s four-door arrangement with up to 42 cubic feet of cargo space, and each is available in two-seat and four-seat configurations. The M-9-260 and M-9-235 have useful loads of 1,092 pounds and 1098 pounds, respectively. Like the rest of the M-9 series, the new models feature heavy-duty aluminum spring gear, all-metal wings and Maule STOL performance.
