Why 2021 is the year of the ASV Posi-Track !

by editor

Since establishing itself as an industry icon with its innovative and distinctive undercarriage system more than two decades ago, the ASV Posi-Track Loader is now available in 11 different models to suit virtually any and every operator and project.

A major factor in ASV’s renowned reputation in the Australian market is the premium level of comfort, control, power, reliability, serviceability, and warranty shared across every model, from the compact RT-25 up to the mighty RT-120. Patented intelligent suspension technology in the undercarriage, spacious and ergonomic cabs designed for long days on the job, premium engines and componentry throughout, and operability on virtually any type of terrain, combine to deliver what is widely regarded as one of the finest line-ups of compact track loaders.

11 MODELS AVAILABLE
ASV Posi-Track Loaders are available in a wide range of sizes and configurations to suit any operator or task. Note that the model names of ASV loaders refer to the approximate horsepower output of that machine – for example, an RT-60 offers 60 horsepower of performance.

Landscapers and tight access site operators find the compact RT-25, RT-40 and RT-50 models the ideal mix of smaller size yet massive performance. Weightto- power ratios are optimised, machine balancing is ideally centred, ground pressure is light to minimise terrain disturbance, and ground clearance is high to ensure access to challenging workspaces. ASV Posi-Track Loaders dominate the compact size classes for quality and performance.

In the mid-sized range, the RT-60 and RT-60 2-Speed models remain icons in the industry thanks to their excellent versatility. Comfortable, efficient, well-balanced and powerful with excellent traction and ground clearance for working on steep batters, the RT-60s are the ultimate jack of all trades. Many owners throughout Australia utilise their ASV RT-60s across a diverse range of projects – site clearing, landscaping, slashing, spreading, landscaping, pallet shifting, and so much more.

The next step up in size are the RT-65, VT-70, RT-75 and RT-75HD models – all ofwhich now include the all-new MAX-Series cabs. ASV have once again revolutionised the CTL market with the release of the MAX-Series cab, which offers 360 degree visibility around the machine, significantly more head, leg and shoulder room, an upgraded air conditioning system, a 7 inch touchscreen for greater machine control and monitoring, a state-of-the-art deluxe seat, and much more.

The smallest of the MAX-Series machines, the RT-65, offers similar versatility to the RT-60 models, but with greater torque and loading capabilities, plus an optional high flow hydraulic variant. For those operators who prefer an open cab, however, the RT-65 also comes in an OC variant.

The VT-70 Posi-Track is ASV’s only vertical lift loader, and is ideal for any operators needing extra lift and dump height in a mid-sized machine. In addition, the VT-70 is now available as the VT-70 High Output variant, which offers enhanced hydraulic performance compared to its predecessor.

Stepping up in size and capability further, the RT-75 and its even tougher Heavy Duty brother are the largest models available in the MAX-Series range, and offer the ultimate performance in this size class. Ideal for large construction projects, major site cleans and operation in extremely challenging conditions, the RT-75 has become an industry icon. The Heavy Duty (RT-75HD) variant also includes forestry guarding to ensure maximum operator and machine safety against flying debris whilst mulching and slashing.

Finally, the largest and most powerful of the ASV Posi-Track range, comes the RT-120 and its Forestry variant. When it comes to power, performance, comfort and serviceability, the RT-120 ticks every box with gusto – a 3.8L turbo engine packing 120 horsepower and 488Nm of torque, 1603kg rated operating capacity, 5-coupler hydraulics with simultaneous use of high and low flow, 381mm ground clearance. And that’s just the beginning.

In summary, the 11-model range of ASV Posi-Track compact track loaders is sure to have the perfect machine – or machines – for your every need.
