What is a Skid Steer Loader?

Articles - Mobile

A skid steer loader can be used for a vast variety of applications, and can actually serve as an effective “tool carrier. The name itself explains the main features of this multifunctional machine. It can load earth into a truck, dig and move landscaping and building materials,

clean roads, grind asphalt, clear the road from snow and serve many other purposes. It is also distinguished by its Glossary Link steering system, in which the machine’s movement is controlled by varying the speed and direction of the two sets of wheels on each side independently. This feature is very useful when operating in tight spaces and guarantees high maneuverability. 

Diesel engines mounted on skid steer loaders drive two hydrostatic pumps and one hydraulic Glossary Link pump. Each hydrostatic pump transmits the oil to a travel Glossary Link motor, one left and one right, and the machine can travel forward, backward or turn. The other pump transmits the oil to cylinders and the Glossary Link pressure moves the correspondent work equipment. Two joysticks, one for traveling and another for the arm/bucket, Glossary Link control all movements. 

Conventional working equipment is comprised of two arms hinged on the rear part of the machine. This method reduces the space required and increases lifting capacity, which otherwise would be very low due to the compactness of the machine. There is a quick coupler system hinged to the arms for fitting the multiple attachments available (bucket, auger, dozer blade, grader, etc.). The PPC Glossary Link control levels provide immediate sensitivity to and control of the work equipment so that the operator can execute simultaneous, quick and smooth movements as if he/she was using his/her own arm.



Besides wheel-type, there is a compact track loader. The steering mode is the same, but the advantages of rubber tracks are considerable when working on soft terrain, mud or when you need more traction Glossary Link force. Operator comfort is also increased due to greater stability offered by these machines. Moreover, you can distinguish between radial and vertical lift, with the latter being used when you need more lifting capacity because the bucket stays closer to the machine while rising up.
