The RCV rubber-track loader from ASV features a vertical-lift design that eliminates the loader arm towers at the rear of the machine for improved visibility over your shoulders. The machine has a lift height of 131 inches and a forward reach of 34 inches. The vertical-lift geometry allows you to work close to the sides of trucks or other obstacles. With its 86-horsepower engine, the RCV travels at speeds up to 6 mph and provides up to 38 gallons per minute to the standard high-flow auxiliary hydraulic circuit. The unit’s tipping load is 8,000 pounds and the operating load is 4,000 pounds. A hydraulic quick attach, quick-connect hydraulic fittings, selectable self-leveling and a new engine throttle control come standard. The rubber-track undercarriage exerts just 3.6 psi of ground pressure, allowing you to maneuver over turf without causing damage and work in muddy or soft ground conditions that would bog down a rubber tire skid steer.
