The original skid-steer loader arms were designed using a hinge at the rear of the machine to pivot the loader arm up into the air in an arc that swings up over the top of the operator. This design tends to limit the usable height to how long the loader arm is and the height of that pivot point. In the raised position the front of the loader arm moves towards the rear of the machine, requiring the operator to move extremely close to or press up against the side of a tall container or other transport vehicle to get the bucket close enough to dump accurately. At the highest arm positions the bucket may overflow the rear of the bucket and spill directly onto the top of the machine's cab.
A tractor is a large, heavy duty vehicle with a petrol or diesel motor delivering high torque at a low speed. Tractors are especially indispensable in the world of agriculture, as they can tow implement or machine attachments used for ploughing, tilling, harrowing, planting and feeding, as well as spraying fertilizers and pesticides. Another popular attachment is the hey tedder that allows haymaking. Tractors also have the power to haul large items, and the heavy treads of their rear tyres allow plenty of traction on soft or uneven terrain. The more modern RC tractors can be controlled remotely and some are used to mow like a tractor mower.

Knowing how much tractor you need is a separate problem all together. The answer depends on the work you intend to do. What implements will it pull? Is the main job brush hogging an established pasture or finish-cutting a lawn? Do you need tires that won’t trash the yard or more aggressive treads and 4-wheel drive so it won’t get bogged down in the woods? I was after a 30-to 50-horse machine with 4-wheel drive, and a frontend loader. Because much of my land is forest that I’m clearing for food plots and pasture, I wanted something heavy enough to take a beating and pull an 8-foot tiller or brush hog.

On the end of the stick is usually a bucket. A wide, large capacity (mud) bucket with a straight cutting edge is used for cleanup and levelling or where the material to be dug is soft, and teeth are not required. A general purpose (GP) bucket is generally smaller, stronger, and has hardened side cutters and teeth used to break through hard ground and rocks. Buckets have numerous shapes and sizes for various applications. There are also many other attachments which are available to be attached to the excavator for boring, ripping, crushing, cutting, lifting, etc. Excavators in Scandinavia often feature a tiltrotator which allows attachments rotate 360 degrees and tilt +/- 45 degrees, in order to increase the flexibility and precision of the excavator.
I waited. “8-5, in the back, can I get 8-5?” I raised my card. “9, 9, can I get 9?” Overalls was on the ropes. “8-7-5, $8,750, what do you say? Nice Kubota. Very nice Kubota. 8-7-5.” Overalls bid, that son of a gun. “9, can I get a –” I shot my card up. “$9,500, up front, what do you say?” Overalls was shaking his head no. “With the backhoe, a great deal at 9-5, 9-5,” Overalls kept shaking no. He was out. “In the back, $9,000, going once, going twice, SOLD!”
