ASV Holdings introduced the new RT-40 Posi-Track loader. Featuring a compact size, the RT-40 provides an alternative to walk-behind and stand-on mini skid-steer loaders.

“The industry has never seen power like this in a machine the size of the RT-40. It’s a powerhouse,” said Justin Rupar, ASV Holdings’ vice president of sales and marketing. “The machine features remarkable performance for its 4-foot width. This means our customers can complete work faster, better and more comfortably in restricted areas.

The RT-40 includes a turbocharged 37.5-hp, 1.8-liter displacement Kubota diesel engine, which produces 84.5 ft-lb of torque. The Tier 4 Final engine requires no regeneration, exhaust sensors or diesel exhaust fluid. The 4,175-pound RT-40 features a rated operating capacity of 931 pounds and a tipping load of 2,660 pounds. The loader is 48.3 inches wide, has an 8.4-foot lift height and offers a top speed of 7.1 mph.

The RT-40 chassis also provides a 44-degree departure angle and offers a 10.8-inch ground clearance, which allows the unit to easily travel over logs, stumps, rocks and other obstructions, said ASV.

Variable auxiliary hydraulic flow comes standard on the Posi-Track loader. The system operates efficiently and at a high auxiliary circuit flow rate with a 13.3-gpm pump capacity and 3,000 psi system pressure. The RT-40 has a highly efficient cooling system, allowing operators to use the machine at full load 100 percent of the time in ambient temperatures up to 118 degrees.

Containing 12 contact points, the RT-40 provides a low ground pressure of 3.5 psi, giving contractors greater control and better pushing capabilities, according to ASV.

The RT-40 also offers a number of features that improve its serviceability, including:

  • A large rear-tilting hood that provides easy access to all maintenance points, including filters, oil and fuel tanks and reservoirs, hydraulic and water separator drains and the battery;
  • An electric lift pump for easy priming and extended fuel filter life;
  • Easy access to the drive pump, with the fuel tank in the engine compartment, rather than under the seat; and
  • Standard metal-face seals on the front and back to ensure the drive hubs don’t require maintenance for the life of the machine.

The loader includes a high-quality, durable track with a pro-rated warranty period of two years/1,500 hours in addition to the one-year bumper-to-bumper warranty.
