  • ASV’s RT-75 Compact Track Loader Revolutionizes The Compact Track Loader Market With Longer Run Times, Increased Performance And Reduced Maintenance

    ASV LLC, an industry-leading manufacturer of all-purpose and all-season compact track loaders and skidsteers, introduces the large-frame, radial-lift Posi-Track RT-75 compact track loader. The RT-75 features highly efficient hydraulics and an innovative, high capacity cooling system while delivering superior serviceability. ASV’s patented Posi-Track undercarriage provides the industry’s highest ground clearance, lowest ground pressure, best traction and longest track life. These features make the compact track loader the ideal machine for applications from construction, landscaping and agriculture to forestry, snow removal and more. “ASV is on a mission to revolutionize the compact track loader market,” said Jim DiBiagio, ASV general manager. “When ASV launched our new line-up of compact track loaders the goal was simple: maximum performance — no compromises! The RT-75 was designed to be the most reliable, highest all-around performing machine in the large frame class — 75 to 95 horsepower machines. We use high-quality components from well-known suppliers — Cummins engines, Bosch drive pumps and motors, and Interstate batteries, to name a few. When you couple high- quality components with over 25 years of experience designing compact track loaders, you get a machine that delivers on our promise of maximum performance with no compromises.”
