PT-50 Posi-Track Loader Series 3 (PT50)

Product Information

PLEASE NOTE: this machine has been superseded by the ASV RT-60 Posi-Track – click here to view. Dry Hire (Rental) and Used for Sale machines remain in stock.

The PT-50 uses patented Posi-Track™ suspended undercarriage technology that maximizes traction and flotation while giving operators the most comfortable ride possible. As a result, the machine’s 6,200 lb (2812 kg) operating weight is distributed down to only 3.5 pounds per square inch (24.1 kPa) of ground pressure.

Turbo charged, 60Hp (44.7kW) diesel engine provides smooth, reliable power.

Operating the PT-50 is easy with pilot-operated joystick controls and a load-sensing hydraulic system that helps prevent engine stalls. Optional smooth Turf Tracks or Extreme Terrain Tracks with aggressive treads are also available.

  • Mid-sized compact track loader with low ground pressure and excellent traction for working on soft, wet or sensitive surfaces. Also offers exceptional performance on fi rm, stable ground conditions.
  • Easy operation with pilot-operated joystick controls and comfortable operator station.
  • Standard auxiliary hydraulics and quick coupler attach easily to a wide range of industry-standard attachments.
