  • Skid Steer Loaders and What They Can Do

    Posted on April 6th, 2009 admin No comments

    Skid steer loaders are very common and more than likely you have seen one around landscaping projects or commercial construction sites. Because of their small size and maneuverability they are able to move and operate in small spaces. They are light weight and can easily be towed behind a truck, and their wide selection of attachments makes them very adaptable.

    Skid steer loaders are commonly used for digging and moving landscaping and building materials, but they can also do a variety of other tasks, including grading, demolition and loading.

    Skid steer loaders are incredibly maneuverable. Each side of the skid steer loader is powered by a separate hydraulic pump which allows it to turn in its own tracks. This allows the skid steer loader to operate in small, tight areas. Skid steer loaders have wheels but can also be outfitted with tracks which makes it an ideal piece of equipment for working in dirt, mud and snow. Adding tracks to a skid steer loader increases its traction, lowers ground pressure and reduces soil compaction.
