Mini Skid Steers

Mini Skid SteersIf you're in the construction business, then you likely already know what a Mini Skid Steer is.

Mini Skid Steers for Landscaping Needs


Mini Skid Steers normally have four wheels or sometimes they have two tracks. The wheels will hold a fixed straight alignment and therefore, do not turn. As in the name, Skid Steers need to be steered into the direction needed. When the operator increases the speed of the wheels on one side, that causes the wheels to skid or drag across the ground which rotates in the opposite direction.


Landscapers use Mini Skid Steers when digging up trees or any large hole they need for landscaping. The benefit of a skid steer is they come with a variety of attachment options so that they are utilized for different projects. One could even clear snow with a particular attachment. Some skid steers are used in excavating work too.


Renting vs. Buying


If you own a large amount of land and foresee many projects that include digging over the years, you might find it necessary to buy a Mini Skid Steer. You'll have the room to store it depending on the land you own. If you just need it for a project or two, the option to rent is available.
