Equipment Type

 Skid Steer Loaders

Skid steer loaders, the "Swiss Army Knives" of machines, use a wide range of mechanical and hydraulically powered attachments to accomplish varied tasks. Skid loaders, having sophisticated auxiliary hydraulic systems, are compact, highly maneuverable, and range in rated operating capacity (the weight that can be safely lifted and transported) from 500 to more than 4,000 pounds.


The SK752 mini skid steer is powered by a 24.8-horsepower Kubota engine

The 700- and 800-frame size loaders are now Tier 4-compliant with a Bobcat engine that uses SCR, CEGR and DOC.

New Holland Construction 200 Series skid steers and compact track loaders (CTLs) feature new, more powerful engines

The TS80R2 radial-lift skid steer loader has a rated operating capacity of 2,825 pounds, and the TS80V2 vertical-lift version has an ROC of 3,500 pounds.

Four skid steer loaders are included in ASV LLC’s entry into the category: radial-lift RS-60 and RS-75, and vertical-lift VS-60 and VS-75.

One of the key costs that manufacturers have identified is fuel, which accounts for nearly half of the operating cost of a piece of equipment.
