What Are Crawler Skid Steer Loaders?

It is a lightweight construction machine with 2 tracks on each side which is used for a variety of tasks. Skid steers typically include a bucket as the default attachment, but you can outfit them with many different attachments, allowing skid steers to assist with all sorts of construction and landscaping projects.

Crawler Vs. Wheeled Skid Steers

Skid steers are radial lift machines that you can find in two main types; tracked steers and skid steers. Let’s discuss both types below:

Crawler Skid Steer Loaders

Before digging into the explanation of tracked steers, it is important to note that these machines were invented after the wheeled version. The wheeled excavators had some serious limitations resulting in the invention of tracked skid steer loaders. They have a broader weight distribution due to the availability of two tracks.

The broader weight distribution of these skid steer loaders makes them ideal for snowy, wet, or muddy ground. They don’t sink into wet surfaces but rather float over them. If you want a smoother ride, you should select a tracked skid steer over a wheeled SSL.

However, you should think twice before using a tracked SSL on asphalt or concrete. A tracked SSL can easily tear up concrete or asphalt surface.

Wheeled Skid Steer Loaders

Wheeled SSLs can work perfectly on asphalt or concrete surfaces, unlike tracked skid steers. They have the ability to move faster on these types of surfaces. Therefore, you can cover more ground in less time by using the wheeled SSLs.

Wheeled skid steer loaders are capable of working on landscape surfaces in a much better way. The best part about them is that they are cheaper than tracked SSLs.

Note that the weight of this SSL is distributed on four contact points. It indicates that these SSLs can sink into snowy or muddy surfaces. But the best part is that you can maintain them easily. The reason behind cheap and easy maintenance is that wheels are less expensive than tracks.

Tire wear happens faster than tracks in the case of wheeled SSLs.

Simply put, tracked SSLs are the modern version of skid steer loaders, while wheeled SSLs are the older versions.

How to Choose A Tracked Skid Steer Loader?

1. Machine Weight

The weight of the skid steers usually determines the stability of the whole body, and also how should we transport this kind of machine.  Usually, the machine weight is the first consideration before we buy a skid steer loader. Because the weight is what we diverse the models and levels of this skid steer loader. 

2. Rated Load

The rated load is also called the rated working capacity of the skid steer loaders. It is the weight the skid loader arms can handle to any lifting height. As an important feature of the tracked skid steer loader, you must pay attention to it while considering buying one. That determines the work limitation.

3. Engine

Engine power could be the most important factor to consider when deciding which skid steer loader to choose. Also, the cost of the machine is depending on engine power so we have to take this point into consideration.

Meanwhile, we should pay attention to the emission standard of our local government policy. Such as the US and Canada will require the engine must comply with EPA Tier 4. European countries will require EURO5 certification. 

One more point is the brand of engines and their influence globally. It should be easy to find the spare parts.

4. Attachments

Before choosing a crawler skid steer loader, you should be clear about what kind of attachments it could be attached. Just as described above, select some of them according to your actual work. Or you can take some advice from the machine suppliers. Only with the right attached tools, the skid steers could reach their utmost utilization.

5. Dimension

You will likely want to pay attention to the dimensions of your chosen skid steers, as these will help you decide how well they can fit into your chosen space. The dimensions can also give you an idea of the space of the working site.

And when you decide to buy a skid steer loader, you should always consider the package and delivery, which is mostly decided by its dimension.
