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.

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.

Knowing the tractor you want, and the market for it is a start, but it can all go out the window after a little hands-on time with the actual machine. It may have lived a hard life, and be worth half as much, or it may be a barn queen in mint condition and justifiably cost a pile more. For the rookie tractor buyer or the mechanically disinclined, this is where knowledgeable friends come into play.
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.
