ASV Holdings Inc. introduced a repowered RT-40 Posi-Track loader with a Yanmar engine. Not only does the 38.2-horsepower engine add more power to what was already a compact powerhouse, it improves serviceability for machine owners by allowing them to have the Yanmar engine serviced at ASV dealers. Additionally, the small-frame RT-40 showcases new comfort, visibility and performance features over its predecessor. It is a leading performer in applications that require work in tight spaces, including urban snow clearing and landscaping.
“With the Yanmar-powered RT-40, we are doubling down on the machine’s performance, reliability and comfort, as well as making it easier for our customers to service the engine at ASV dealers,” said Buck Storlie, ASV Holdings Inc. product manager. “The RT-40 is already a staple due to its ability to bring more power and productivity to limited-space work that may otherwise have required a fence removal or needed to be done by hand.”
The RT-40 comes standard with variable auxiliary hydraulic flow and can operate efficiently at a high auxiliary circuit flow rate, powered by 13.3-gpm of pump capacity and 3,000 psi of system pressure.
The loader is built with a heavy-duty frame, drive table and axles. It features new wiring harness routing for additional durability. In addition, the drive hose routing and chassis sealing are designed for reduced rubbing, fewer line breaks and boosted hose longevity. Metal-face seals on the front and back ensure the drive hubs do not require maintenance for the life of the machine. An optional bumper or bumper and limb riser can help protect the machine in tough applications, such as rental applications.
ASV stands behind the reliability of its Posi-Track loaders with a 2-year, 2,000-hour warranty. The warranty includes the industry’s first and only no-derailment guarantee and covers the tracks for the entire warranty period.
