Posi-Track RT-30 works in tight spaces

With an operating weight of 3,600 lb., ASV Holdings’ RT-30 has evolved tremendously since its original release in 1998. It has been upgraded with high-quality components, such as high-torque stainless steel hose clamps and a Perkins engine. The largest area of improvements is in the machine’s undercarriage. It was originally a closed-track design, but now all of the company’s machines have an open-rail, drive-sprocket design. This lengthens the sprocket and bogie life, and the open-rail design makes it faster and easier to clean.
Contractors and rental centres love the RT-30 because it’s a commercial-quality, compact machine that works in tight spaces for a variety of applications, from landscaping and snow removal to construction. This saves on costs in limited-space applications that would otherwise require manual labour. Despite its size, the RT-30 is not an entry-level machine. It’s built with the same durability, efficiency and serviceability as larger ASV models. It offers a safe and more productive alternative to similarly sized walk-behind and stand-on mini skid-steer loaders.
