Texas Skid Steer Rental

If you’ve used or rented a skid steer loader in cold weather, you’re probably familiar with the many annoyances involved with installing tire studs. The screws or ice racing studs you may have installed to provide traction in slippery conditions can be impossible to remove or may even cause permanent tire damage. The screws don’t last very long, and when the head wears off, it’s virtually impossible to take them off. If that happens, you’re left with a screw that may work itself down into the tire and eventually puncture it.

eTerra has created a set of skid steer tire studs they’re calling Grip Studs that are an innovation in skid steer tire stud technology. Their studs use a hex head that extends past the carbide in the stud. Even as the carbide wears down with use, the hex head remains, making sure that removal – even of a well worn stud – will always be possible. Some of their studs have even racked up 600 hours of use, meaning you can remove and re-use the same studs.

Studs can be installed with an electronic screw driver or cordless drill, and their removal is as simple as installation.
