According to compactequip.com, ASV Holdings Inc. has decided to test their mettle against other CTL and skid steer manufacturers in a new video series. Dubbed the ‘ASV Demo Challenge,’ the videos will focus on ASV machines and how they compare to other top brands in terms of stability, speed, traction, and overall performance in a wide array of operating conditions.
Buck Storlie, ASV testing and reliability leader, said the goal was to demonstrate that ASV machines are more productive and comfortable their competitors. “These videos prove it,” he said, “showing ASV outperforming competitor compact track loaders in task after task and giving our customers the information they need to make an informed decision when buying new equipment.”
Here are a couple of things to avoid when operating:
Spinning your tracks — that’s not getting anything done faster. All you’re doing is exposing your tracks and undercarriage components to premature wear.
Overly aggressive operation — just because these machines can turn around on a dime, doesn’t mean you should. Extreme counter-rotations or sharp changes of direction takes its toll on the tracks.
Making sure your undercarriage is clean when you’re running hard is another way to get the most of your tracks. Taking a few moments at the end of the day to make sure you’ve removed mud, clay, gravel or snow is a good idea, however, doing it multiple times a day when the job site demands it is an even better idea.
