Wakeham Skid Steer Trimmer The Wakeham Skid Steer Trimmer uses direct hydrostatic drive to trim 88 inches wide. The 2,000-pound attachment will work on a 6,800-pound skid steer of 65 horsepower with high-flow hydraulics, but its designer says the machine is most at home on a heavier compact track loader. The hydraulic system relies on Vickers valves and an Eaton motor. The Skid Steer Trimmer costs about $35,000 when it is outfitted with a Leica Power Grade Control system with sonic elevation sensor to control both elevation and grade.
