In late May, Grainews machinery editor Scott Garvey and online editor Greg Berg headed south to Grand Rapids, Minnesota, to attend the official launch of ASV’s newest compact track loader (CTL), the VT-70 High Output. Grand Rapids is home to the brand’s assembly plant and proving grounds. While they were there, the Grainews team also took a look at the company’s assembly line process before going out to the test track to put several of the brand’s models—along with some competitive brands for comparison—through their paces.
Watch for a full account of our review of the ASV loaders in a future edition of Grainews, including a pair of videos soon to be available online. But for now, here’s an inside view at the company’s facility and some of the testing we were involved in.
