Of Course, I have spent little time in it..

How much does he pay you an hour?

02-14-2004, 07:34 PM
nice looking machine! Wouldn't it be nice it if could stay clean?

I am considering a machine like this- I would be interested in your experiences with it in the next few months.....

02-14-2004, 07:35 PM
That thing is nice! I'd hate to see the price tag on that thing. Is that the future business owner in the seat?

I will keep you up to date on how it works out. Have plans for a few more attachments. The machine is NOT that expensive. 15K with a bucket.
Mykster: He will certainly be an operator just not soon enough for him.

Nice Machine!

Looking for any help over there in Va Beach? I'm a recent Hort graduate, working for a small tree/landscape over here on the peninsula. Not really doing to much Landscape construction or real Horticultural stuff over here with this guy... Do some side jobs on my own... Looking to learn something new!

Let me know.

DTE: I am a small operation also, but I am currently at that breakout point. I have an add ready to hit my local area (Princess Anne) color quarterly in a few days and at present have no more part time help than I did last year. Virtually booked up on the cutting schedule and about a weeks worth of landscape work on the books. About ready for a second cutting crew.
The new machine helps with mulch, landscape material installations/removal. Will be using a Harley on it in April for a large Sod Prep/Install Job.
I have e-mailed you with my phone number.

How has the the new RC-30 been so far. Also, is there a website for that machine?

06-10-2004, 10:07 PM
sweet lookin machine, is it the turf edition with the soft tracts for the grass....so it won't rip it all to hell.

Hey strawbridge,

Can you pick up a pallet of pavers with that machine?....what are its limitations?

Hey Strawbridge:

Congrats....Nice machine!!!

Did you get that machine in Virginia? I was looking at the ASL 300 by Polaris (online), but could not find a dealer in Maryland or Virginia. Most dealers explained to me that the ASL 300 was a joint venture with ASV, but the Polaris line had since been discontinued. Long story short, I purchased a Dingo TX425 and I am looking into a larger ASV skid next year.

Please share your feedback with the limitations / benefits of this machine and if the hydraulics flow at the same PSI and fluid; will full size skid steer attachments fit on this machine?

I am now ready to buy a ASL 300 {RC30} but can not locate one any leads would be great.
Thanks in advance

ZUK: I believe the RC-30 hyraulics are identical to the Dingo.
Larger skids have Higher flow rates/pressures to accomadate
larger attachments and capacities. IMO ASV should have put a higher flow hydraylic system on the machine. The machines power and weight would have allowed it to grind stumps pretty well.
I did get a pair of forks for mine to assist moving sod.. This machine WILL NOT move a full pallet of sod, but will move a 1/2 pallet and that is OK for keeping the sod close to the put down point really increases productivity.

If I were to by a larger skid I would go with the RC-60. I operated a 50 for 20 days last Jan. Since I have a 30 going to a 50 would be kinda dumb, but the more capable 60 is something I would consider in a few years.

I saw an ASL300 on EBAY a few weeks ago so check their on occassion.

Best to all.

REPLIES: I do not think this will pick up a pallet of pavers. Figure around 1,200-1300 LBS with a weight kit.
The machine is very capable for what it is, but it will never do what a 50+ HP skid can do. It was not designed for it. The hydraulic flow capacities are where they are for that reason.

It is awesome for mulch as well as light grading. Using it for tree work applications (cleanup-Log Removal w/Grapple ) and it is really a big helper their.

A Harley Rake may be next or PTO powerd something to do what a HR can do for sod prep.

A pic from the early Spring.. Grapple allows for a much largger
capacity. ATI 54"Tractor bucket and Grapple.

06-26-2004, 03:30 PM
That bucket looks cool. Should come in handy. I love grapples when moving rocks.

Now I want my RC-50 more than ever. But I have to wait until next year.
