A skid steer loader is a compact and versatile piece of construction equipment with various practical applications. Loaders typically come equipped with four wheels or two tracks. While the default skid steer attachment is a bucket, you can equip them with a wide range of attachments such as trenchers, cement mixers, augers and more. Skid steers also come in different sizes to suit different needs. Mini or small-frame skid steers make excellent tools for smaller landscaping jobs, while large skid steers are an ideal option for large demolition or excavation jobs.

While this depends mainly on the size and manufacturer of the skid steer, typically a skid steer loader may weigh anywhere from 1,500 pounds for smaller units and up to 12,000 pounds for full-sized models. Of course, some outliers such as mini skid steers can weigh under 1,000 pounds. Most of the weight comes from the counterweight of the skid steer, without which the loader would lose much of its ROC (rated operating capacity). In general, a heavier counterweight equates to a higher lifting capacity.
With an extensive range of attachments available, skid steer loaders have many different applications. The default bucket attachment can be used for clearing snow or debris and lifting and moving heavy objects. For excavation and trenching projects, attachments like the auger, trencher, and ripper are handy. Skid steers are also an excellent choice for landscaping work, and tracked loaders are less likely to tear up grass surfaces. In addition, skid steers can be used for construction, demolition, roadwork, agricultural work and more, provided you get the right attachments for the job. In other words, skid steers are easily some of the most versatile tools for any application on any worksite.
