  • Factors to Consider When Purchasing a Skidsteer

    Posted on May 6th, 2009 admin No comments

    Once you have determined the size and capacity requirements for your skid steer loader, you will need to try out the available models and consider the following factors:

    • Comfort – comfort is important because in many instances a skidsteer loader operator will be inside a cab for hours. You will want to make sure the seat is comfortable, that you can easily reach the controls and that it is easy to get in and out of.
    • Visibility – It is important to have good visibility from inside the cab, this can speed up work and reduce errors and accidents. Make sure you can see the edges of the attachment and can reasonably see the sides from your seat.
    • MaintenanceSkidsteers are tough, but they are also worked hard and will require constant maintenance. Evaluate how easy you can access the parts such as the hydraulic pumps and engine.
