Types of Lifts for Skid Steer Loaders
There are two types of new and used skid steers available to choose from: radial-lift and vertical-lift models. Oftentimes both types can perform the same job, and for these instances, radial-lift models generally weigh less and are cheaper. However, there are some key differences. Radial-lift models are better for loading onto lower surfaces such as flatbeds and pickup trucks, while vertical-lift models tend to better handle materials that need to be unloaded onto higher locations (or when stockpiling).
