Wheel Types for Our Skid Steers

Also known as track loaders, these units feature two sets of tracks instead of conventional tires. By utilizing tracks, they offer better flotation by putting less pressure on the ground. This makes them ideal for uneven terrain and pushing applications such as snow removal or dirt piling. Track loaders can also be used in any weather condition due to their exceptional stability. Despite these advantages, track loaders tend to require more frequent maintenance. This means that you’re getting higher utility, but also higher operating costs.

These skid steers feature a 4-wheel design that makes them ideal for flat, even surfaces. By utilizing conventional wheels, a wheeled skid loader is able to travel at higher speeds than a track loader. They also deliver higher digging force while having fewer wearable components. This reduces maintenance costs over the life of the machine. That being said, these units are not well-suited for difficult terrain such as mud, snow, or sand. They also possess lower pushing power than track loaders.

Lifting Configuration for Our Skid Steers

Vertical Lift
This lift option is available for both track and wheel-based skid loaders. Vertical lift options keep the load closer to the machine. As a result, they offer higher lift heights and greater lift capacities than Radial configurations. This makes them ideal for work that is performed above eye level. Vertical lift skid steers excel in handling construction materials and loading dirt into dump trucks. This makes them a great choice for material handling applications.

Radial Lift
This option is also available for both tack and wheel-based skid loaders. A radial lift skid steer has a lift chart that changes substantially from the ground to full lift height. This means that it offers a higher lift capacity at lower levels, but lower capacity at higher levels. It also offers a slightly longer horizontal outreach at the mid-point. This makes them a great choice for work that is performed below eye level. This includes excavation, digging, and snow removal.

The door folds up in front of the operator, reducing the possibility of damage during operation. Additional benefits include impressive visibility, ergonomic controls, and a sealed cab that reduces sound while keeping dust and debris out.

Each skid loader in our lineup is designed for ease of maintenance. With a tilt-able ROPS/FOPS assembly and easy engine access, you can perform routine checks and repairs quickly. This ensures that you’re spending less time on maintenance, and more time on the job. Additional features include the Ideal TraxTM system for Track-based models. This innovative feature allows for automatic track tensioning, eliminating the need for manual tensioning before operation. This not only saves time, but also increases the usable life of your tracks by up to 15%. When you want a durable and reliable skid steer that is easy to maintain, Leavitt Machinery can help!
