Skid Steer Loader

A Skid Steer Loader is a small, rigid-frame machine with lift arms used to attach a variety of tools or attachments.  It can be used in place of a large excavator when space is limited, such as a basement under an existing building.  It is also used for transporting materials around a site or assisting in the rough grading process.
