The cost of new equipment can be quite steep but browsing online you will find a wide selection of used skid steer loaders for sale. Second-hand skid steers, which are well looked-after, are likely to give you years of trouble-free service, as this vehicle is designed to be particularly robust to cope with all the heavy duty demands placed upon it. If you are searching for skidsteer loaders for sale, taking a look at online auctions & the inventory of used machinery traders gives you the opportunity to compare prices and get a grasp of what is available in the used skid steer market.
A skid-steer loader can sometimes be used in place of a large excavator by digging a hole from the inside. The skid loader first digs a ramp leading to the edge of the desired excavation. It then uses the ramp to carry material out of the hole. The skid loader reshapes the ramp making it steeper and longer as the excavation deepens. This method is particularly useful for digging under a structure where overhead clearance does not allow for the boom of a large excavator, such as digging a basement under an existing house. Several companies make backhoe attachments for skid-steers. These are more effective for digging in a small area than the method above and can work in the same environments. Other applications may consist of transporting raw material around a job site, or assisting in the rough grading process.
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.
A zero-turn lawn mower is a riding mower that has a zero-turn radius--meaning it spins as opposed to turning like a standard vehicle with front-wheel turning. Basically, these things can turn on a dime. Instead of a steering wheel, most models have levers to control speed to each drive wheel, using a hydraulic-based system. They are considered faster and more efficient than standard riding lawn mowers. Because of this unique feature, they can be more expensive.

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!”
Skid-steer loaders are typically four-wheel vehicles with the wheels mechanically locked in synchronization on each side, and where the left-side drive wheels can be driven independently of the right-side drive wheels. The wheels typically have no separate steering mechanism and hold a fixed straight alignment on the body of the machine. Turning is accomplished by differential steering, in which the left and right wheel pairs are operated at different speeds, and the machine turns by skidding or dragging its fixed-orientation wheels across the ground. The extremely rigid frame and strong wheel bearings prevent the torsional forces caused by this dragging motion from damaging the machine. As with tracked vehicles, the high ground friction produced by skid steers can rip up soft or fragile road surfaces. They can be converted to low ground friction by using specially designed wheels such as the Mecanum wheel. Skid-steer loaders are capable of zero-radius, "pirouette" turning, which makes them extremely maneuverable and valuable for applications that require a compact, agile loader. Skid-steer loaders are sometimes equipped with tracks instead of the wheels, and such a vehicle is known as a multi-terrain loader.
A robotic mower is an autonomous mower that operates within a defined set of boundaries to mow a yard. Wire boundaries frame the desired mow area (the yard) and the robotic mower operates continuously within that area, mowing the lawn until you turn it off. They are generally designed for smaller areas, but some newer models are showing increased mow area capabilities. They are awesome if you don’t have the time (or desire) to do it yourself.

Hydraulic excavator capabilities have expanded far beyond excavation tasks with buckets. With the advent of hydraulic-powered attachments such as a breaker, a grapple or an auger, the excavator is frequently used in many applications other than excavation. Many excavators feature a quick coupler for simplified attachment mounting, increasing the machine's utilization on the jobsite. Excavators are usually employed together with loaders and bulldozers. Most wheeled, compact and some medium-sized (11 to 18-tonne) excavators have a backfill (or dozer) blade. This is a horizontal bulldozer-like blade attached to the undercarriage and is used for levelling and pushing removed material back into a hole.
The sheer range of functions they are capable of makes skid steers highly sought after on the used skid steer loader market. Some skid loaders have an automatic attachment changing mechanism. This function allows the driver to change attachments without leaving the cab of the compact loader, as the hydraulic supply line couplings are located adjacent to the cab, and these can be connected or disconnected with ease. Othe skid steer loaders with an extended reach design are capable of a greater operating height and are able to unload into tall receptacles with ease. Skid steer loaders may even be capable of being used as an excavator; this is particularly useful in height restricted work areas where there may not be sufficient clearance for an excavator boom. If you want greater stability and traction in the worst terrain, then you'll want to check out a track skid steer second-hand market.
Hydraulic excavators usually couple engine power to (commonly) three hydraulic pumps rather than to mechanical drivetrains. The two main pumps supply oil at high pressure (up to 5000 psi) for the arms, swing motor, track motors and accessories while the third is a lower pressure (~700 psi) pump for pilot control of the spool valves; this third circuit allows for reduced physical effort when operating the controls. Generally, the 3 pumps used in excavators consist of 2 variable displacement piston pumps and a gear pump. The arrangement of the pumps in the excavator unit changes with different manufacturers using different formats.
The Kubota ran tip-top for three months when a short blew the ignition switch. Horsing around with it I blew the starter. That was an easy fix, but another $250 in the hole. When the backhoe came off, I needed to buy 3-point arms, another $250. A year later, with all the other miscellaneous purchases, most not really needed, I probably have about $11,500 in the Kubota, which for a 45-horse with backhoe, really isn’t bad at all. If I ever need to sell it, I wouldn’t take much less than $15,000. Not that that’s going to happen anytime soon. I haven’t found much on our small property the tractor won’t do: snow removal, firewood, food plots, our big garden, cutting trails in the woods, dragging logs to be milled into lumber.

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.

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.
