Skid Steer Loaders

SKID STEER LOADER RENTAL

A skid-steer loader, or more commonly just referred to as a skid steer, is a multi-use small construction vehicle used for a wide variety of landscaping, material handling, agriculture, and construction projects, such as:

Roadwork
Demolition
Debris Removal
Grading & Backfilling
Brush Clearing
Material Handling InThe Warehouse & More.


Skid steers typically include a bucket as the default attachment, but you can outfit them with many different attachments, allowing skid steers to assist with all sorts of construction and landscaping projects. Skid steers also come in a variety of sizes to suit different applications. Even for jobs that don’t call for a lot of heavy construction equipment, a skid steer can help you get the job done more efficiently.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH A SKID STEER?

Skid steers can help with a wide range of tasks. Here are some examples of jobs that a skid steer can help you accomplish:

Demolition:
Skid steers work great for both interior and exterior demolition projects. With demolition shears, your skid steer can help demolish flooring, concrete, drywall and other materials. Because of its compact size and precision, a skid steer is especially valuable for demo projects in tight spaces, such as when you’re tearing down a house in a neighborhood with other houses nearby.

Roadwork:
Skid steers can perform road building and maintenance tasks. You can attach a cement mixer or pavement miller to your skid steer and use other attachments for tasks like demolition, grading, paving and patching.

Snow and debris removal:
You can use the bucket attachment on your skid steer to clear snow and other debris, such as brush. You can also get a snowblower or snow blade attachment if you use your skid steer for serious snow removal.

Excavating, digging and trenching:
A skid steer is great for earthmoving tasks like digging, trenching and excavating. There are a variety of attachments you can use for these tasks, depending on your specific needs. Some examples include a backhoe, auger, trencher and wheel saw. With the right attachment, a skid steer can dig anything from a whole foundation for a building to narrow portholes.

Grading and backfilling:
You can also fill in holes, level out the ground and aerate it with a skid steer. You can use a bucket for these tasks, but a rake attachment or a grading bar works even better when you’re leveling. With these attachments, you can also scoop up rocks while you level the ground without leaving big trenches behind. For work that is low to the ground, you can use a radial lift skid steer rather than a vertical lift.

Loading:
Skid steers can help you carry equipment and materials around the job site using a bucket attachment. If you need to lift materials, you may want to consider a vertical lift rather than a radial lift skid steer since these models can lift heavier loads and achieve a higher reach.

Mowing:
You may be surprised to know you can also use a skid steer to mow. With a rotary brush cutter, you can cut down tall grasses and other growth to efficiently clear an area. You may even be able to cut down some smaller trees. Because skid steers are zero-turn, they offer the precision you need for mowing but with more abilities than a typical riding mower.

Landscaping:
Some of the tasks we’ve already looked at are useful for landscaping. Other examples of landscaping tasks you can accomplish with a skid steer are grinding stumps, chipping wood and tilling. You can even use a tiller attachment to help mix in compost or fertilizer into the soil. With a bucket, you can transport materials like gravel or mulch or landscaping tools you would otherwise have to push in a wheelbarrow.

Agricultural work:
Skid steers can also be highly useful for farm work. You can use them for tilling and other tasks we’ve already mentioned. Plus, you can use a bucket attachment to clean out barns and stables. You can even purchase a bale attachment to move bales of hay — a task that can otherwise be labor-intensive.

Material handling:
Skid steers can also be useful in a warehouse. With a fork attachment, you can move pallets and other materials. If you want a skid steer for lifting materials and placing them in a warehouse, you’ll want to opt for a vertical lift rather than a radial lift option.

 

These are some skid steer applications, but this list is not exhaustive. There are so many things you can do with a skid steer as long as you have the right attachment for the job.
