“Fitting more power into our machines is a never-ending mission at ASV,” said Justin Rupar, ASV Holdings Inc. vice president of sales and marketing. “The impressively powerful VT-70 High Output will allow our customers to complete tough jobs quickly and efficiently.”
The new VT-70 high output features 207 foot pounds of torque, allowing customers to get projects done quickly. High torque allows for maximum performance, high speeds and minimal engine bog down in all applications.
ASV built the machine with a turbocharged 74.3-hp Deutz 2.2-liter diesel engine. Drive motors transfer the torque to ASV’s internal-drive sprockets. Internal rollers reduce friction loss in the undercarriage, resulting in maximum power being transferred to the track regardless of drive speed.
The engine meets EPA Tier IV Final emission standards utilizing a DOC-only exhaust after-treatment without a DPF or SCR. This completely eliminates all downtime risks, maintenance and the additional costs associated with regeneration and diesel exhaust fluid.
A robust hydraulic system allows for optimal performance and efficiency with even the most demanding attachments. Many other machines lose as much as 30 percent of their horsepower as a result of belt-driven pumps and hydraulic system restrictions, according to the manufacturer. The VT-70 high output’s direct-drive pumps optimize performance over belt-driven pump systems, allowing the machine to run attachments more efficiently than even higher-horsepower competitive units. The compact track loader’s hydraulic system includes 3,300 psi of auxiliary pressure and a 22.2-gpm standard flow. An optional 27.4-gpm high-flow system is available for even greater performance with demanding attachments. Built for peak efficiency, the system features large line sizes, hydraulic coolers and direct-drive pumps, transferring more flow and pressure directly to the attachment.
The VT-70 high output includes a rated operating capacity of 2,328 lbs. and a tipping load of 6,650 lbs. It is 65.6 in. (166.6 cm) wide and has a 126.5-in. (321 cm) lift height. The machine features speeds as fast as 11 mph. A self-leveling system allows attachments to stay at a set position while lifting. Operators can use the unit with all standard attachments.
