ASV Launches New Generation Posi-Track Loader

The RT-50 remains one of Australia’s favourite compact track loaders – and now features a premium Yanmar engine.

The new generation RT-50 Posi-Track Loader introduces new comfort, visibility and performance features, plus a repowered Yanmar engine.

Power & Productivity

The repowered RT-50 features a more powerful new 53.8-horsepower Tier 4, 3-cylinder turbo charged Yanmar engine. The machine has a high tractive effort and exceptional pushing and digging power thanks to ASV’s Posi-Power system. The compact track loader allows contractors to be more productive, with high performance thanks in part to a nimble 1496mm width, a 2784mm lift height, a 907kg rated operating capacity and an 11.4km/h top speed.

The loader’s compact size and 2349kg weight allows it to be towed behind a standard ute or SUV.

Variable auxiliary hydraulic flow comes standard, and the machine can operate efficiently at a high auxiliary circuit flow rate, powered by 50 litres-per-minute of flow and 3,000 psi of system pressure.

ASV has also eliminated labour-intensive belt servicing through the use of a direct drive pump. This, along with the machine’s large line sizes and hydraulic coolers, transfers more flow and pressure directly to the attachment to help prevent power loss.

The RT-50 has been tested to operate at full load 100% of the time in a wide range of climates, thanks to a highly efficient cooling system that allows operators to get more out of their machine.

Serviceability & Reliability

ASV designed the RT-50 so operators can spend less time servicing it and more time on the job. Its rear-tilting hood offers easy access to maintenance points, including filters, oil and fuel tank reservoirs, hydraulic and water separator drains and the battery.

The machine is built with a heavy-duty frame, drive table and axle, and features new wiring harness routing for additional durability. The drive hose routing and chassis sealing are designed for reduced rubbing, creating fewer line breaks and boosting hose longevity. Metal-face seals on the front and back ensure the drive hubs do not require maintenance for the life of the machine.

ASV offers a 2-year, 2,000-hour warranty on the RT-50.

Comfort and Ease of Operation

The single-sided lap bar makes entry and exit easier and provides operators with more hip room. Partially adjustable armrests and a tall cab improves comfort for operators of different sizes. The pressurised cab option also provides a cleaner in-cab environment.

A new 4.3-inch color display and standard hydraulic joystick controls puts full command of the machine at the operator’s fingertips. And a new drive transmission allows for more precise power and fine-tuned operation.

The machine also includes visibility improvements over its predecessor. A new frameless front door includes floor-to-ceiling glass area, allowing operators to better see their work and attachments. The cab’s large side and rear windows provide additional lines of sight. The bright rear LED light and adjustable front pedestal lighting further improve this. An optional backup camera is available to replace the standard rear-view mirror for additional convenience and visibility.

Posi-Track Benefits

ASV designs its patented Posi-Track and skid-steer loaders independently to provide customers with the highest performance from each machine. This differs from other manufacturers who use the same chassis for their range of compact track loaders and skid steers. The RT-50’s dedicated frame results in a 366mm ground clearance, higher than any walk-behind or stand-on loader, as well as many larger machines. The unit can travel over rocks, logs, stumps and other obstacles with less risk of getting caught.

ASV’s Posi-Track system features a flexible track and an open-rail and internal positive drive-sprocket undercarriage, allowing for greater traction, longer wear life, and faster, more convenient undercarriage cleaning.

Posi-Track loaders also have a high number of ground contact points, spreading the machine’s weight evenly. As a result, the RT-50 features an industry-low 3.0 psi ground pressure, reducing the risk of damage to turf and offering better flotation and traction on steep, slippery and wet ground.
