SSL (skid steer loader) refers to the standard wheeled machine.  CTL (compact track loader) and MTL (multi-terrain loader) refer to different undercarriage designs.  CTLs feature a steel embedded track and steel undercarriage components for maximum life in many applications.  MTLs have a rubber track undercarriage that delivers lower ground pressure compared to an SSL and CTL so they don’t tear up the ground as badly.
1Qualified equipment includes either a 314G or 318G canopy unit with 10”x16.5” tires, 2” seat belt, and 66” construction bucket. Example based on a 314G lease of $30,076 with a 10% advanced lease payment, monthly payment $379 for 36 months; or a 318G lease of $32,516 with a 10% advanced lease payment, monthly payment $399 for 36 months. Lease terms include 600 hours per year. For an additional $50 per month (USD), customers can upgrade to a 314G or 318G with a cab. 
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.
An excavator is designed to do one thing well - to dig out trenches, footings, and foundations with ease. Excavators are available in a variety of sizes, from the micro-excavator units that are adept at navigating tight urban or residential areas, to the massive earth-moving units that can scoop thousands of pounds of material in one pass. With the popularity of excavators at an all time high, it pays to understand the differences between competing models. Then, you can make an educated choice on a model that will serve your crew the best.

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.[1]

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.
