Machines that work best to remove construction materials such as sand, dirt and gravel around over small distances, are the Skid Steers. The couplers i the machines are not very quick, but can be used with a large array of attachments such as augers, breakers and grader, apart from the standard bucket. This makes it very versatile and can be used efficiently for range of tasks.
A skid loader, also known as a wheeled skid-steer, is a device that can turn with zero-radius. It uses wheels, rather than tracks, to navigate in tight spaces. It can move, dig, and lift various matter, such as earth.
Renting the right skidsteer loader is a matter dependent upon just how congested a jobsite is. The tighter the workspace, the more appropriate a small skidsteer. Terrain is also a factor. For wet, muddy or snowy jobsites, a skidsteer with tracks gives the operator better traction. If the skidsteer is going to be used three-axel dump trucks -- a standard sized truck, -- a bigger skidsteer is a better choice because the arms have more reach and the bucket is larger which means a large skidsteer can load a truck faster than a small one.
Skidsteers are only between five and seven feet wide which means they can inch between tight spaces with relative ease. Front-end loaders and backhoes, while very useful in their own rights, can not compete with a skidsteer on a congested jobsite. The pivoting action of skidsteers allow the machines to turn 360 degrees on a zero-degree radius.
