Thanks to a simple selector-switch, Mecalac patent, the driver can turn his compact excavator into a compact loader and then back again, using the same commands. Loading efficiency is maximized, it is made by the skid bucket supported on the blade which increases the machine’s efficiency thanks to the force of the thrust transmitted directly from the chassis to the bucket. The operation is performed more accurately using the control lever. The patented Mecalac cylinder coupling function, allows to synchronize the boom cylinders for perfect movement coordination and precision. It makes driving and handling easy, regardless of whether the operator is a novice or more experienced. And, whether engaged or otherwise, they’re yet another powerful feature along for the ride.
Who likes dropping or spilling materials? No one. That’s why CASE’s innovative Ride Control™ feature is such a benefit. Just push a button to automatically steady the loader arm when traveling at elevated speeds and the machine automatically compensates with greater shock absorption and reduced loader arm bounce, so you can work faster than ever without spilling your load.

Unlike in a conventional front loader, the lift arms in these machines are alongside the driver with the pivot points behind the driver's shoulders. Because of the operator's proximity to moving booms, early skid loaders were not as safe as conventional front loaders, particularly during entry and exit of the operator. Modern skid loaders have fully enclosed cabs and other features to protect the operator. Like other front loaders, it can push material from one location to another, carry material in its bucket or load material into a truck or trailer.

With my ideal tractor in mind, I was able to cut the list of 60 or 70 tractors for sale down to 20 or so. Before I got into seeing what those 20 fetched online, I dug into tractor forums looking for hands-on reviews. The New Hollands in the size class I was after, I found, were actually rebranded LS tractors, made in South Korea. A neighbor loaned me an LS awhile back and I wasn’t in love with it. The old Allis-Chalmers was a great machine, but parts were hard to find. A couple of the John Deeres had really positive chatter, as did the L3750, which a couple of guys on the Kubota forum said might be the best tractor Big Orange ever made. Before I started pricing the tractors out, that list of 20 or so was cut in half.

There are two main types of "Control" configuration generally use in excavators to control the boom and bucket, both of which spread the four main digging controls between two x-y joysticks. This allows a skilled operator to control all four functions simultaneously. The most popular configuration in the US is the SAE controls configuration while in other parts of the world, the ISO control configuration is more common. Some manufacturers such as Takeuchi have switches that allow the operator to select which control configuration to use.
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.

There’s also a cost in getting a tractor home. If you own a big trailer, this isn’t a concern, but if you don’t – and live far away from the auction yard – that bill can run a few hundred dollars. Kyle volunteered to haul whatever I bought the hour south to my place. So, with the repairs plus transport, I wagered the Kubota would cost $1,000 above what I bought it for. My new high price was $10,000 and, frankly, I thought it would go for a lot more than that.

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.
