Everything you need to know before you buy or rent a skid steer loader.

What’s in a name? Skid steer loader vs compact track loader?

What is a skid steer loader used for?

All that aside, here are some jobs you can do with your skid steer loader and the attachments you can use:

  • Snow Removal – You can use the snow blade attachment or a snowblower attachment on your skid to steer to the bush or blow snow. 
  • Excavating, digging, and trenching – Skid steer loaders are great for earthmoving tasks like digging, trenching, and excavating. There are a variety of attachments you can use for these tasks, depending on your project. Some examples include an auger, trencher, and wheel saw. With the right attachment, a skid steer can help you complete your excavating, digging, or trenching project!
  • Loading – Skid steer loaders can help you carry equipment and materials around using a bucket attachment.
  • Mowing – You may be surprised to know you can also use a skid steer to mow your lawn or brush that is in the way! With a rotary brush cutter, you can cut down tall grasses and other brush to clean up an area. You may even be able to cut down some smaller trees less than 3″ in diameter. Skid steers are zero-turn; they offer the precision you need for mowing but with more abilities than a typical riding mower.
  • Landscaping – Examples of landscaping tasks you can accomplish with a skid steer loader are grinding stumps, chipping wood, and tilling. With a bucket, you can transport materials like gravel or mulch or landscaping tools easily that you would otherwise have to push in a wheelbarrow.

Should I buy or rent a skid steer loader?

To purchase a skid steer loader, you’ll either need a sizeable amount of cash or decent credit. While a purchase requires a higher upfront cost, it could save you money over time, especially if you plan on using the machine frequently. Use this general rule of thumb: if you use the machine more than 65% of the year, a purchase makes sense.  If you use it less than 65% (or less than eight months in a year), then you should rent. There are also possible tax advantages of buying as well as the potential return on investment, ask your accountant what makes sense for you.
