ASV’s new heavy-duty attachments keep loaders busy all year

ASV offers its new mulcher attachments in a standard drum or depth control series for both the RT-135F and RT-75HD

ASV now offers high-performance mulchers, snow attachments and a six-way dozer blade to owners of its MAX-Series compact track loaders and skid steers.

The new attachments are specifically designed for the MAX-Series RT-135F and RT-75HD Posi-Track loaders, but are compatible with all brands of loaders. 

ASV introduced the RT-135F late last year, the biggest CTL in its lineup. It’s said to have 10% more horsepower than its predecessor, ASV’s RT-120.

“These new attachments allow operators to enjoy ASV performance year-round – seamlessly transitioning from dirt and landscaping work in the summer to snow clearing in the winter,” explained Frank Gangi, attachments product manager for the ASV brand. “Our machines are designed for all seasons and conditions and that includes our attachments.”

Both the RT-135F and RT-75HD Posi-Track loaders are designed for high performance in forestry and other demanding applications. The RT-75HD’s auxiliary hydraulic system provides 35.7 gpm high flow, while the RT-135F uses a 132-horsepower Cummins engine combined with a 50-gpm maximum auxiliary flow and oversized auxiliary pump of 66 gpm.

The extra 16 gpm within the pump means operators can run high-flow attachments, such as the new mulchers, at full speed while moving the loader without slowing down the tool. Both the RT-135F and RT-75HD transfer more flow and pressure directly to the attachment by using larger line sizes, hydraulic coolers and direct-drive pumps rather than belt-driven pumps, which prevents power loss, according to the company. 

ASV offers its new mulcher attachments in a standard drum or depth control series for both the RT-135F and RT-75HD. The standard drum is suitable for most applications and includes carbide teeth for use in rocky soil. 

ASV also offers the depth control series outfitted with knives that shine in stringy, fibrous vegetation applications. Depth control technology allows the mulcher to process material in a single pass and creates a consistent bite for a clean, finished look.

The introduction of ASV’s snowblower, snow blade and snow pusher allows operators to tackle winter jobs with power and efficiency. The snowblower features a four-blade fan, heavy-duty gearbox and a high-carbon steel cutting edge to plow through snow and ice.

Plus, a No-Freeze-Up chute design seals out snow and freezing slush to minimize downtime. The snow blade and snow pusher have a high-carbon steel cutting edge for a long lifespan. Additionally, operators can add an optional rubber cutting edge to the snow pusher for work in sensitive areas such as sidewalks and grass.

The six-way dozer blade for grading and leveling rounds out these attachment updates with heavy-duty construction and a hydraulically controlled blade for versatility and easy operation. This all-in-one package combines a dozer, grader and leveler that can be used in a variety of applications such as road work, yard work and more.

The new ASV mulchers, snow attachments and dozer blade are currently available for pre-order through ASV’s dealer network.
