New PT-100 Forestry Loader Offers High Performing Features

Staff | September 28, 2010

ASV recently unveiled its new PT-100 Forestry compact track loader, a special version of ASV’s largest compact track loader that comes fully outfitted for demanding environments, such as forestry applications. This rugged new machine includes a comprehensive set of integrated standard features not found on any other machine in its class.

New standard features on the PT-100 Forestry loader include an all-new sealed and pressurized cab, large dual pressurization filters, a high-performance air conditioner and heater, and full forestry guarding. Complementing these standard features is ASV’s patented Posi-Track™ undercarriage technology. This machine complies with the applicable operator protection standards for forestry applications of this type machine. See brief specifications for details.

The PT-100 Forestry loader uses a unique new auto-reversing fan to keep the machine’s cooling system running at peak performance. Requiring less downtime for cleaning away debris, the PT-100 Forestry loader uses a pneumatic pump to periodically change the pitch of the fan blades, reversing air flow. Debris that collects on the hood screens radiator is purged, greatly extending the time between radiator cleanings. The auto-reversing fan triggers at set intervals, but can also be engaged “on demand” by the operator at any time. Also standard is a screened engine pre-cleaner, and heavy duty skid-plates, which are hinged to allow access for cleaning out debris and other routine machine maintenance.

The PT-100’s cooling system includes a highly efficient side-by-side radiator/hydraulic oil cooler with the capacity to keep the machine and hydraulic attachment running cool, even under severe loads in hot, humid climates.  

Powerful, maneuverable and built to work in rugged environments over long hours, the PT-100 Forestry loader comes equipped with a comprehensive set of guarding equipment, including a heavy-duty polycarbonate door with a wiper, steel hood, rear brush guard and limb-risers. 

The PT-100 Forestry loader is the latest entry in ASV’s comprehensive line of PT Series Compact Track Loaders, available through its network of ASV dealerships in North America and Australia. For more information about the ASV™ PT-100 Forestry loader, to review complete specifications or locate the ASV dealer nearest you, visit
