Basics of the Skid Loader: Heavy Agricultural Machinery

from: Marcela Devivo

What is a skid loader?

A skid loader is a stiff frame machine with mechanical arms that

can be fitted with attachments for a wide variety of different

tools, including a backhoe, hydraulic breaker, pallet forks,

angle broom, sweeper, auger, mower, snow blower, stump grinder,

tree spade, trencher, and a wheel saw.

Modern skid loaders come in two varieties, a four wheeled system

and a rubber track version. Wheeled skid loaders are typically

are four-wheel drive and for additional maneuverability, the

left and right wheels systems are independent. The track version

also referred to as a track loader provides for better digging

and pushes performance in higher end models due to less ground

disturbance and better traction in un-ideal environments like

mud and sand.

History of the skid loader machine

The first three-wheeled front-end loader was invented in 1957 by

two brothers, Cyril and Louis Keller, in a small machinist shop

in Rothsay Minnesota. The brothers conceived the idea to help a

nearby farmer with the ignoble task of cleaning up manure for a

pole barn. They wanted to help him, and out of this

collaboration the first skidder was born.

This early machine was eventually purchased by Melrose

Manufacturing Company and the Kellers brought on to continue

development. Since then it has spread to become a highly valued

piece of heavy machinery at construction and engineering site

around the globe.

What are these machines used for?

Due to the wide array of attachments available for these

vehicles , they have many uses, but mostly are employed for

scrape material from one place to another, carry materials in a

bucket and proceed to load them into a truck or trailer.

Skid loaders can also be used in tight digging situations where

factors limit the practically of using a large excavator, like

digging a basement under an existing house. In this situation a

skid loader would make use of a ramp at the edge of the site.

The loader would proceed to use the ramp to carry materials out

of the hole. The skid loader would reshape the ramp by making it

steeper and longer as the excavation deepened.

Differences between a front loader machine and a skid loader


The pivot arms on a skid loader lay behind the driver, alongside

the side of the vehicle.

Major machine manufacturers

Major manufacturers for skid loaders include the Bobcat Company,

Mustang, Case, New Holland, Komatsu, and Caterpillar <a
