PT-30 Posi-Track Loader Series 3 (PT30)

Product Information

PLEASE NOTE: this machine has been superseded by the ASV RT-30 Posi-Track – click here to view. Dry Hire (Rental) and Used for Sale machines remain in stock.

At only 48 inches (1219 mm) wide, the Terex PT-30 compact track loader is sized to work in confined spaces yet productive enough to replace an entire crew of hand labor.

The 32.7 horsepower (24 kW) PT-30 uses patented Posi-Track™ undercarriage technology with suspension that maximizes traction and flotation. As a result, the machine’s 3,305 lb (1500 kg) operating weight is distributed down to only 2.8 pounds per square inch (19.2 kPa) of ground pressure.

A wide-range of performance-matched attachments makes it ideal for many jobs. The PT-30 may be equipped with general purpose 11-inch wide (280 mm) tracks or optional smooth Turf tracks for ultimate protection of finished surfaces.

  • Compact and maneuverable, ideal for productive work even in tight situations where access is limited.
  • Very low ground pressure allows work on soft or sensitive surfaces with minimal damage or impact.
  • Easy operation with pilot-operated joystick controls and comfortable operator station.
  • Standard auxiliary hydraulics and quick coupler attach easily to a wide range of performance-matched attachments
