Lift Arm

The robust lift-arm on the RT250 GEN:3 Compact Track Loader is designed for optimal strength, visibility and capacity.

* Additional reach and increased dump height result in more efficient load placement and overall performance.

* Low-profile design provides outstanding forward, rear and side visibility.

* Simple "in-line" design increases structural integrity by eliminating the complex geometry and welding found on many competitive "offset" lift arm designs.

* Front channel support and large diameter pivot pins provide exceptional lateral strength and rigidity.

* Lift-arm incorporates dual bucket cylinders and two lift-arm stop blocks on the front of the main frame to evenly distribute digging forces.

Height to Hinge Pin - Fully Raised (mm) 168" (4267)



Serviceability is very important to our customers. The RT250 GEN:3 is sure to exceed your service expectations.

* Large, gas-spring assisted engine cover and over-sized, flush-mounted rear door allows full access on the rear of the machine for servicing and maintenance.

* Lockable compartments on the rear towers open to reveal the battery on the left and hydraulic tank on the right.

* Entire ROPS/FOPS assembly tilts rearward with large gas-springs for easy internal service access.

* Track rollers and idlers are sealed and require no maintenance.

* Patented tilt-out foot pod allows for best-in-class foot well cleanout and provides perfect access to the fuel tank and other components under the cab.

* Coded wiring takes the guesswork out of electrical system identification.
