Compact track loader

ASV Holdings Inc. offers a new mid-size RT-50 Posi-Track loader that features an industry-leading performance-to-weight ratio and joins the RT-25 and RT-40 — two of the industry’s smallest sit-in compact track loaders — as a powerful, lightweight machine.

All three are ideal for rental houses, commercial businesses, weekend warriors or as an addition to landscape, construction or snow-clearing fleets.

The RT-50 Posi-Track loader is easily towable behind a 1/2-ton pick-up truck or SUV, as well as on small, narrow trailers.

The RT-50, RT-40 and RT-25 let operators to do more in more places thanks to the industry’s lowest ground pressures, the ability to be towed behind a 1/2-ton pick-up truck, and compact statures that allow the machines to fit into tight areas. The RT-50 provides operators more power in tight areas other machines have difficulty accessing, opening doors to new applications for contractors and offering an accessible rental option. With a greater performance-to-weight ratio than any machine in its class, the track loader features a 1,400-pound rated operating capacity while weighing just 5,350 pounds. High performance in a lightweight machine means easy transportability and less risk of turf damage, translating to more money in a contractor’s pocket.

The RT-50 has a 109.6-inch pin height and top speed of 7.1 mph top speed and a 58.5-inch width. The machine minimizes the risk of turf damage with a class-leading low ground pressure of 3.1 psi. An optional smooth turf track further minimizes turf damage. ASV achieves this low ground pressure with 15-inch-wide tracks and an even weight distribution brought on by the large number of contact points within the patented Posi-Track undercarriage.

The patented Posi-Track undercarriage significantly improves operator comfort. Operators experience a smoother ride over tough terrain, meaning less fatigue during a long day in the cab. This is made possible by a torsion axle suspension system. Operation is easy and intuitive as a result of standard joystick controls.
