ASV Holdings introduced the RT-25 Posi-Track compact track loader at 2018 GIE+EXPO in Louisville, Ky.

Featuring similar dimensions as ASV’s more powerful RT-40, the RT-25 is ideal for working in tight spaces.

“Despite its small size, the RT-25 is no toy. It includes many of the features that define ASV CTLs and make them productivity-boosting powerhouses, all in an incredibly compact package,” said Justin Rupar, ASV Holdings’ vice president of sales and marketing. “We made the machine economical so small- to mid-sized contractors and rental centers can take advantage of its versatility, lightweight qualities and the ability to get otherwise difficult jobs done quickly.”

The RT-25 measures 48 inches wide and features a 3,755-pound operating weight. The low weight contributes to increased flotation and traction for snow clearing on sidewalks, driveways or in alleyways. A completely smooth turf track is also available. Because of its low weight, drivers can transport the CTL on a trailer pulled by a 0.5-ton pick-up truck or SUV.

The unit’s cab shields the operator from outside elements and provides rollover protection. The RT-25 also features an optional heated cab.

The machine’s industrial 25-hp Perkins diesel engine is turbocharged. The Tier 4 Final engine requires no regeneration, exhaust sensors or diesel exhaust fluid. It can reach top speeds of up to 5.1 mph.

The RT-25 features a rated operating capacity of 665 pounds, a tipping load of 1,900 pounds and an 8.4-foot lift height. Its quick-attach suits a variety of available attachments.

Variable auxiliary hydraulic flow comes standard on the Posi-Track loader. The system operates with an 11.3-gpm pump capacity and 3,000 psi system pressure. The RT-25 is equipped with direct drive pumps, which transfer more flow and pressure directly to the attachment and prevent power loss.

ASV manufactures its loaders with the Posi-Track undercarriage. The system features a flexible rubber track with internal positive drive sprockets. The open-rail and drive-sprocket design results in increased sprocket and bogie life and easier and faster undercarriage cleaning. All of the wheels are exposed in the undercarriage. The RT-25 contains 12 contact points per track, resulting in a ground pressure of 3.1 psi.

The RT-25 features a 10-inch ground clearance. The machine’s chassis provides a 55-degree departure angle.
