What is a Skid Steer Loader?

A skid steer loader is a compact loading machine with a weight capacity ranging up to 5 tons. Skid steer loaders are popular with contractors, landscapers, and land owners for their ease of use, performance, and versatility on the jobsite. They are also easy to haul around, as even the largest units can be moved with a pickup truck and a bumper pull trailer.

What Jobs are good for Skid Steer Loaders?

Skid steer loaders reduce the need for shovels, wheel barrows, trenchers, and other hand tools. They allow you to get more work done in less time with a reduced risk of injury and significant increases in productivity. From shoveling dirt or mulch to cutting concrete, trenching for fiber optic lines, grabbing downed limbs, leveling building pads, or grading driveways, skidsteers do many jobs well: they’re a handy helper wherever you work!
