“ASV has been a leader in the small sit-in compact track loader market for two decades, and we continue to do so,” said Justin Rupar, ASV Holdings vice president of sales and marketing. “Just like the rest of our line, these are serious, capable machines for serious work. They are lighter, faster and stronger, and their compact size allows operators to get into tight areas and do things they never thought possible with a compact track loader.”
The RT-50 features a 1,400-pound rated operating capacity while weighing just 5,350 pounds and features a 50-horsepower engine, high efficiency drive system and a light overall weight.
The RT-50 handles demanding attachments with ease. This is thanks to a highly efficient cooling system and a robust hydraulic system that includes 3,000 psi of auxiliary pressure and a 13.3 gpm flow. The system features large line sizes, hydraulic coolers and direct-drive pumps, transferring more flow and pressure directly to the attachment with maximum efficiency.
Operators can use the machine to load landscape trucks and small dump trucks thanks to the loader’s 109.6-inch pin height. The loader is capable of a 7.1 mph top speed.
The machine minimizes the risk of turf damage as a result of a 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 was designed to improve 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.
For additional comfort, ASV offers an optional suspended seat. An optional cold weather cab with heater or pressurized all-weather cab with heat and A/C allow for year-round comfort while working in extreme temperatures.
All maintenance points are easily accessible due to the machines large rear-tilting hood. Drain plugs for draining, Zerk fittings for convenient greasing, and spin-on, frame-mounted filters with single-wrench servic add to ease of maintenance. In addition, a direct-drive pump eliminates the labor-intensive belt servicing that comes with belt-driven pump.
All of the wheels are exposed in the undercarriage, allowing material to spill out, reducing the risk of abrasive material getting trapped and wearing away at components.
All Posi-Track loaders are backed with ASV’s new 2-year/2,000-hour warranty. The warranty covers tracks for the entire period and includes the industry’s first and only no-derailment guarantee.
