Skid Steer Loaders

A skid steer loader is one of the most versatile tools you'll find on any job site. They can dig, move materials, and load them, but not all skid steer loaders are the same. Depending on your job requirements and goals, you might need a tool with more digging power or a high lift reach. The lifting mechanism, whether radial or vertical, will also play a role. If you're looking to buy a Cat® skid steer loader, it's important to compare your options and choose the best skid steer for the job.
