A special forestry version of ASV’s largest compact track loader features an all-new sealed and pressurized cab, full guarding, large dual pressurization filters, and a high-performance air conditioner and heater. On the 99.9-horsepower PT-100 Forestry loader, ASV’s patented Posi-Track undercarriage includes rugged tapered bearings with metal face seals on all wheels. Independent torsion axle suspension and 18-inch-wide rubber tracks maximize traction and flotation in soft underfoot conditions. With 42 wheels to spread the machine’s weight over the length and width of the tracks, the PT-100 Forestry loader has a ground pressure of just 4.37 pounds per square inch. A 40-gallon-per-minute, 3,650-pounds-per-square-inch auxiliary hydraulics package features an advanced load-sensing system, while a new auto-reversing fan keeps the cooling system running at peak performance in debris-laden forestry applications.
