What is a Skid Steer?
The skid steer is the jack of all trades on a construction site. Due to the variety in sizes of skid steers and the wide assortment of specialized attachments, virtually any task on a job site can be completed with a skid steer loader. There are several manufacturers in the skid steer industry including Caterpillar, Case, Gehl, JCB, John Deere, Volvo, Wacker Neuson, Yanmar, Kubota, and New Holland. Skid steers are small, engine powered, rigid-frame pieces of heavy equipment that can be fitted with rubber tires, rubber tracks, or steel tracks.
