ASV Posi-Track Loaders have been a staple of the construction industry for more than a decade, building a reputation as the most comfortable, versatile and high-performing compact track loaders on the market.
New to the already expansive range of ASV Posi-Track loaders arrive two of the most innovative and impressive machines in the industry: the VT-100 and VT-100 Forestry models.
The VT-100 compact track loader is a vertical lift machine, built to handle any loading or grading applications in landscaping and construction. In addition, the VT-100 Forestry is designed extra heavy duty for mulching, right-of-way clearance, site prep and much more. Both new models include enhanced comfort, visibility and performance features, ensuring their status as premier compact track loaders in their class.
“The introduction of these two new loaders reinforces our reputation as a compact track loader specialist,” said Buck Storlie, product manager at ASV. “They are the perfect option for those looking for a little more power than the RT-75 without having to go to the heavy hitter of all CTLs; the RT-135. The lifting capabilities, pushing power and hydraulic flow of the new VT-100 and VT-100 Forestry is sure to impress.”
Power and performance
ASV’s VT-100 and VT-100 Forestry are equipped with a 103.5 horsepower Tier 4 Final Yanmar diesel engine, plus 150 litre-per-minute high flow hydraulics with load sensing for improved efficiency. The VT-100 features a 1588kg rated operating capacity and 4536kg tipping load, and the VT-100 Forestry includes a 1678kg rated operating capacity and a 4795kg tipping load.
An attachment positioning feature allows operators to create a preset for the angle of the attachment based on the task at hand, offering return to position at the push of a button. Operators can also move material more quickly and with less spillage, thanks self-levelling and ride-control features.
Auto 2-speed allows the VT-100 and VT-100F loaders to shift automatically between low and high-speed modes, and offers travel speeds up to 14.9 km/h. A remarkably low 4.5 psi ground pressure from the VT-100, and a 4.0 psi ground pressure from the VT-100 Forestry, allows smooth performance on sensitive, unstable surfaces.
Comfort and operator experience
The new models prioritise comfort and operator experience with premium MAX-Series cabs. Offering 360-degree visibility, a state-of-the-art 7-inch color display (with vital monitoring tools, reverse camera, and service schedules and history), and a standard fully-adjustable suspended seat.
For exceptional safety, both models include a removable roof hatch, plus the VT-100 Forestry features forestry-rated guarding around the light and radiator, a built-in limb riser, and forestry-level operator protective structures, impact falling object and rollover ISO standards.
Ease of serviceability will also stand out to operators, with convenient features throughout each model – such as easily accessible daily checkpoints, removable skid plates for quick cleaning when needed, and three-panel engine access plus a swing-out radiator that requires no tools to open for simple access to daily check points.
Both new models also incorporate an optional SMARTASSIST telematics system. SMARTASSIST features range from error detection and notification to real-time operational status updates and daily work reports.
ASV stands behind the reliability of its Posi-Track loaders with an industry-leading 2-year, 2000-hour warranty.
