Asv Rt50 DumpASV’s new mid-size RT-50 Posi-Track loader will be unveiled at the ARA Show (booth 3077) and ConExpo (booth F100801 in Festival Hall).

The RT-50, which can be towed behind a half-ton pickup, has a 1,400-pound rated operating capacity and weighs 5,350 pounds. Powered by a 50-horsepower engine, the unit has 3,000 psi of auxiliary hydraulic pressure with a 13.3 gpm flow. The hydraulic system features large line sizes, hydraulic coolers and direct-drive pumps, all designed to transfer more more flow and pressure directly to the attachment.

A 109.6-inch pin height allows operators use the machine to load landscape and small dump trucks. The 58.5-inch wide machine has a 7.1 mph top speed.

The unit’s Posi-Track undercarriage uses 15-inch wide tracks and even weight distribution through a number of contact points. As a result, the 3.1-psi ground pressure machine minimizes the risk of turf damage, ASV says. It also gives a smoother ride, increasing operator comfort.

A large rear-tilting hood provides access to all maintenance points, including drain plugs , Zerk fittings and spin-on, frame-mounted filters. A direct-drive pump eliminates the belt servicing that comes with belt-driven pumps, says the company.

The company recently announced a two-year/2,000-hour warranty on its loaders, and also offers a no-derailment guarantee.
