Skid Steer Loaders can easily be said to be a Swiss Army Knife of Construction Equipment. With their ability to easily connect a variety of attachments, these versatile machines can perform almost any job. Rather than having multiple machines, contractors can simply bring one skid steer fitted with a range of attachments that can be used to perform several jobs. 

As its name, the stump grinder attachment efficiently grinds the stumps of the treen after they have been cut. Attached to an Auger Drive, these stump grinders are extremely useful and cost effective.
Whether contractors are loading, digging or moving material, the versatile backhoe attachment is designed to help contractors stay efficient on a variety of earth-moving tasks. With the correct bucket size, digging depth and 180-degree swing radius, the backhoe attachment can help improve operator agility and efficiency on the jobsite. Additionally, the backhoe attachment eliminates the need to rent or purchase a mini excavator, minimizing the transportation and maintenance costs associated with additional machines.
Power rake attachments are reliable assets for any landscaping job. They are designed to clean, level and to smooth and loosen soil for sodding. Most rake attachments create more drum torque to break up hardpack or clay soils. Power rakes can help landscapers complete necessary tasks quickly and efficiently.
A Pallet fork is an essential attachment for loading and unloading material from a trailer or truck bed and makes material handling across tricky terrain easier and more efficient. A pair of pallet forks can help operators move a variety of materials like sod, bricks, trees and ornamental garden boulders.
The bucket attachment is arguably the most popular attachment for skid steers. They help operators lift large piles of material or debris that need to be relocated or disposed of. There are a variety of bucket types to choose from, depending on the application. For example, dirt buckets are primarily used for transporting topsoil and backfilling. Grapple buckets come with hydraulic clamps to hold unstable material, making them ideal for tree care or landscaping. There are also high-capacity buckets, buckets with teeth for digging, and 6-in-1 buckets that allow for multiple jobs to be completed, making them ideal for any jobsite.
Forestry mulchers are Ideal for precision mulching that quickly and efficiently shreds standing vegetation and processes material on the ground. Utilizing shear bars and knife tools, it creates a consistent chip size in the first pass. The cutting chamber is designed to process material going forward or back dragging, without leaving any unprocessed material. It is an excellent tool for clearing bush and vegetation, shredding material, lot clearing and site preparation
When contractors invest in attachments, they can perform a variety of tasks with one machine. For example, an operator can take a single machine on a job to load, dig or move material with a backhoe attachment. They can then switch to pallet fork to handle materials. Afterward, a bucket can be attached to remove the soil. Lastly, a power rake attachment can be used to restore the ground. Four attachments, four tasks complete and just by using a single machine. 
With the right attachments, you can turn one machine into a multiskilled workhorse.
