    Used skid steer loaders

    Skid steer loaders are compact machines that are used for scooping, maneuvering, and dumping materials within relatively short distances. Often referred to as skid steers or skid loaders, these small lifting machines are most commonly used in areas that are too difficult for other loaders to maneuver, such as front loaders. Skid steers derive their name from their wheel locking mechanism. Because each wheel operates on its own axel, skid loaders are able to lock its wheels on one side allowing the machine to drag or “skid” the other side in a zero-point turn. This capability allows the skid steer to navigate tight areas while transferring material. A skid steer loader’s arms are placed on each side of the operator cab, connecting behind him on the back of the frame. This placement helps keep the machine’s compact frame while enabling the operator to have a clear view while operating the machine.

    The idea for the skid steer loader first originated in Rothesay, Minnesota in 1957 as a way to get turkey manure out of a barn. Unlike its modern day counterpart, the first “skid steer loaders” were set on 3 wheels to help them pivot effectively. The first 4-wheeled skid steer, the M-400, came from Melroe Manufacturing Company (later named Bobcat). This early version was able to lift roughly 1000 lbs and was powered by a humble 15 horsepower engine. It would be an understatement to say that skid steer loaders have come a very long way since their origin 60 over years ago.

    Although the majority of skid steer loaders maintain the same primary function, there are a plethora of options to consider when purchasing one. It is vital to the success of your operation to have the right machine that fits every need. The primary criteria to examine is the size of the machine that will be required. There are 3 main considerations with the size of skid steers: how much weight needs to be lifted, what type of space the machine will be operated in, and how high the materials will need to be lifted. For jobs in a more open environment that require an unusual dumping height as well as heavy lifting, one of the most effective options would be along the lines of the Mustang4000V. This large skid steer can lift its load 12 feet in the air to be unloaded into large dump trucks. Conversely, if you are trying to maneuver in tighter spaces, a better option may be the tightly packed Bobcat S70 that is only 3 feet wide and 6 feet tall.

    Other than differing in size and power, skid steers have few variations apart from their wheelbase. The vast majority of skid steer loaders are operated outside. When making their signature pirouette turns, the locked side of the vehicle can cause intense friction that can damage asphalt or other types of soft terrain. For this reason, most skid steers are operated on gravel or dirt. If the terrain is unstable or inconsistent a different type if skid steer, called a multi-terrain loader, may be used. Multi-terrain loaders are fitted with tracks instead of tires. These elongated, tank-like rotating tracks provide the ultimate stability for skid steers on rough surfaces by having constant contact with the ground. The even distribution of weight throughout the track causes traction that provides a balance as the machine carries material up hills or on unsteady terrain. Just like its tire-based counterparts, the multi-terrain loader has the ability to lock one side of its tracks that allows the machine to swivel to accomplish sharp turns.

    Looking at skid steer loaders online or in magazines pales in comparison to seeing them in person, but finding a dealer close by is not always an easy feat. That’s why there are events like CONEXPO-cON/aGG. This major event fancies itself the biggest construction convention in all of North America. The expo regularly features skid steer industry titans such as Caterpillar, Bobcat, John Deere, Case, and New Holland displaying their best equipment. They also provide over 150 educational sessions around heavy equipment including skid steer loaders. The next event will take place in Las Vegas in March of 2020.
