Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
Is ASV a good skid steer?
ASV focuses on rubber-track skid steers, and has a solid reputation for quality in that part of the market. Given the history of the company, their tracked skid steers are designed as compact track vehicles from the ground up, and not as wheeled skid steers that have been modified to have a pair of tracks instead of tires.
They also have a good reputation for low ground pressure. The machines are probably best used for light and medium duty and may not be able to stand up to hard use on rough terrain. Tracks may not be suitable for obstacles like stumps or rocky ground, either.
