Construction equipment: ASV LLC, a manufacturer of high-performance compact track loaders and skidsteers, introduces the Posi-Track RT-120 Forestry, cited to be the largest and most powerful compact track loader in the industry. The large-frame RT-120 Forestry features more power and productivity with less ground disturbance than any other machine in its class.
Maximum power and torque, along with unparalleled cooling capacity, make the RT-120F capable of using the largest attachments for long periods of time without bogging down or overheating. The rugged machine makes mulching, brush cutting and highway and utility work faster and easier. Like all ASV equipment, the RT-120F includes maximum efficiency hydraulics and innovative, high-capacity cooling systems that allow for more work done in less time. In addition, the machine achieves versatility on all surfaces — from mud and brush to ice and snow — using ASV’s patented Posi-Track undercarriage. It provides industry-leading serviceability, ground clearance, ground pressure, traction and track life.
“ASV is on a mission to earn recognition as the industry leader in the high end of the market with our larger machines by offering superior performance, productivity and ROI. Our customers come first, that’s why we make sure they have machines that stand up to the tough jobs they face every day,” said Jim DiBiagio, ASV general manager. “The RT-120 Forestry easily meets that demand with its size, strength and rugged design. We really mean it when we promise maximum performance with no compromises.!”
ASV optimized the RT-120F for forestry work that can be too demanding for other machines. The unit includes metal guarding against brush and debris around key areas, such as lights, the AC condenser and the rear screen. A full rear brush guard is also available as a factory-installed option.
The RT-120F also incorporates an additional level of durability with a heavy-gauge, falling object protective structure (FOPS) level 2 cab, improved rollover protection (ROPS) and reinforced windows for impact resistance. The machine blows debris from mulching applications out of the engine compartment screens with a hydraulically driven, auto-reversing cooling fan. The RT-120F works with all standard attachments, including mulching heads, brush cutters, backhoes, tooth bars, buckets, snow blades and pallet forks.
