Skid Steers lift heavy loads of materials and debris on construction sites, farms and anywhere else. Skidsteers can also excavate and grade with attachments – and what is a skid steer without attachments, right? Read MoreA small skid steer (mini skid steer) leaves the lightest footprint for landscaping and can maneuver easily in underground construction jobs, while the largest skid steer made was a Mustang skid steer with a 4 thousand pound operating capacity and 144-inch vertical reach. You might not need the largest skid steer made by Mustang, but you will need a large skid steer for demolition. A large skid steer can lift the most, grade the fastest and excavate the deepest, but a medium top rated skid steer loader is powerful enough to finish the job and lightweight enough to travel over sidewalks, concrete, asphalt and landscaping areas without rutting.

For fairly new skid steers, inspecting the condition of the tires, belts, hoses, and looking for leaks, rust and excessive exterior damage should be enough. Older skid steers may need to have the oil and hydraulic fluids tested for impurities or mechanical problems.
If you are buying a skid steer from an area known for severe weather, then the inspection will have to be more thorough. Check the fluid levels on the engine, transmission, hydraulics, and check the connective pins to make sure they are greased. The engine should start normally and the transmission should sound normal, too.
