A Skid Steer is often referred to as a Bobcat, which is a name of a specific brand of skid steers. Skid Steers get their name from the fact that in order to make a turn, the tires "skid" in opposite directions, one side going forward and the other side stationary or in reverse. This allows the machine to perform a zero-radius turn. They are also referred to as skid loaders.
We offer the John Deere 317, a hard-working wheeled skid-steer loader, with lots of maneuverability and great all-around performance and productivity. Our John Deere will outperform most comparable size machines, meaning you will get more done in less time!
A Skid Steer is useful for digging, grading, dumping and moving dirt, stone, mulch, wood chips, sand and many other materials. They are used for construction, land clearing, land leveling. On a job site or when doing a landscaping project, a skid steer is invaluable. a skid steer can do the work of several men, from digging a foundation hole or moving trees to carrying a full skid of material to right where it's needed. Add on an attachment like a Harley rake or yourk rake and your skid steer becomes a powerful grading machine
We also offer the John 322CT which is a tracked versions of a skid steer loader. You can find more information on our tracked version page
