ASV Holdings Inc., an industry-leading manufacturer of all-purpose and all-season compact track loaders (CTLs) and skid steers, introduced the new RT-25 Posi-Track CTL.
Measuring just 48 inches wide, RT-25 is the industry’s smallest sit-in CTL – easy to drive through tight spaces, while minimizing the risk of property or machine damage. This includes landscaping or construction in high-density housing or confined areas, where structures such as fences may otherwise need to be removed to accommodate larger equipment.
“Despite its small size, the RT-25 is no toy,” said Justin Rupar, ASV Holdings Inc. vice president of sales and marketing. “It includes many of the features that define ASV CTLs and make them productivity-boosting powerhouses, all in an incredibly compact package.”
It’s also a safer alternative to walk-behind and stand-on mini loaders/stand-on or walk-behind loaders. A 3,755-pound operating weight further reduces risks of damage to turf or sensitive surfaces, and contributes to increased flotation and traction for snow clearing on sidewalks, driveways or in alleyways. A completely smooth turf track is available to minimize the risk of damage to manicured lawns and golf course greens.
The unit’s cab shields the operator from outside elements and provides rollover protection, an uncommon feature with walk-behind and stand-on units that are prone to accidental tipping. An optional heated cab provides additional operator comfort during winter weather.
With an industrial, 25-horsepower Perkins diesel engine and 5.1-mile-per-hour top speed, RT25 achieves maximum productivity by moving around quickly, and digging and lifting more. As a turbocharged engine, it can output its full horsepower even at high elevations. The Tier 4 Final engine requires no regeneration, exhaust sensors or diesel exhaust fluid.
