Skid steer loaders are an important part of a construction job. They are versatile and can effortlessly maneuver in tight spaces. Compatible with a range of attachments, skid steers can be used for a variety of jobs including land management, material handling, excavation, digging, debris removal and construction projects.

Although a skid steer comes with a standard attachment like a scoop or a bucket, you can invest in other skid steer attachments depending on your requirements. The right attachment can help you make the most of your skid steer while ensuring the job is completed efficiently.

Site Preparation

Site preparation is one of the first tasks to be carried on a construction site. Site preparation calls for versatile tools that can help clear vegetation, rocks, boulders and debris quickly. Skid steers can be used to chop thick brush, remove stumps and haul debris when preparing for a construction project.

Here are some essential skid steer attachments to consider for site preparation:

  • Stump grinders, mowers, brush cutters and mulchers
  • Hammers and augers
  • Grapples and buckets
  • Rakes, blades and land planes

Material Handling

Skid steers are compact machines and are ideal for handling jobs. They can help you load a variety of materials quickly and efficiently.

The front loader of a skid steer can be attached to a range of specialty attachments, allowing you to carry heavy items, loose materials and even palletised products.

On a construction site, they can be used to haul soil and other materials. Here are some skid steer attachments to consider for material handling:

  • Pallet forks
  • Buckets
  • Bale spears
  • Grapples

Digging and Trenching

A skid steer is a perfect machine for digging jobs of all kinds. Whether you are looking to dig post holes for trees/fencing or dig a foundation/pool, a skid steer can help you get the job done. If you are looking to create even, smooth ditches for irrigation lines/drainage/utility pipes, a skid steer with the right attachments can come in handy. Here are some digging and trenching attachments to use:
