Altoz has announced the release of its new Altoz Switch stand-on tracked compact tool carrier.
The Altoz Switch provides the benefits of tracks along with the versatility of multiple attachments for multi-season use. Multiple tasks can be performed using the available attachment options, which can be changed out quickly and easily:
- three mower decks – all-terrain, brush and finish
- angle broom
- straight blade
- snow blower
- brine de-icing system.
The operator station of an Altoz Switch features an adjustable coil spring-over gas shock suspension rider platform. The perforated platform and low center of gravity provide secure footing and increased control for the operator.
The Switch torsion axle width adjusts from 41.5 to 51.5 in. for added stability. The 9-in.-wide all-terrain track is the key to traction and bridging the gaps found in rough terrain for improved ride quality. The Switch can move across slopes, low lands, technical terrain, and snow and ice-covered surfaces quickly, confidently and safely.
The 29.5 -horsepower Kawasaki FX 852cc engine has an integrated electronic throttle and governor control helping power through those tough conditions. Kawasaki’s EFI fuel management system continually adjusts power to load to keep ground speed steady, getting more done in less time with maximum fuel economy. A high-performance commercial hydrostatic drive system delivers quick response to the Altoz track system.
Standard features on the Switch include:
- Electric dial throttle control
- Large 9-gallon fuel tank
- Solid-state PTO switch
- Keyless push-to-start ignition
- SmarTrac Pro control
- SoftStart clutch control, which decreases mechanical wear and significantly increases belt life.
Engineered for landscape and snow removal professionals, city utility departments and government entities, the Switch’s compact chassis and the ability to operate in tight areas make efficient work no matter the season.
Altoz reports that it’s continuing to develop and will release more accessories to add to the versatility and capabilities of the Switch.
