Chinese Skid Steer Loader Market : Introduction of Development History and Well-known Manufacturers

Author: Site Editor     Publish Time: 2022-10-26      Origin: Site

The development history

In the 1970s, the skid steer loader entered China  At that time, China's economy lagged behind some developed countries such as Europe, America, Japan and South Korea. In the background, almost all the work which can be done by small construction machinery like skid steer loader has to be completed by manual labour in China.  The weak market demand and few domestic manufacturers cause the skid steer loader industry develops slowly.

But in recent years, with the rise of China's economy, increasing labour costs and the gradual strengthening of social awareness of labour security, it has been becoming a trend to replace labour with machines. Meanwhile, small construction machinery has also been able to gain more market. It is generally believed that the skid steer loader will become a new hot point in the domestic construction machinery industry after the excavator.

Application field

It is called "high-efficiency worker in the narrow sites". Due to the small size of the whole machine and the ability to pivot steering, it is suitable for operation in narrow sites such as urban infrastructure, roads or construction sites, workshops, warehouses, docks, ship decks and even cabins.

Using all-wheel drive and no inter-wheel differential is beneficial to work on the undulating ground. It can carry out shovel transport, stacking, lifting, digging, drilling, crushing, grasping, pushing and raking, loosening soil, ditching, road cleaning and road compaction and other operations.

It is used to support large-scale construction machinery to make site cleaning. Slippage in ground cleaning requires ground cleaning accessories, which can clean the remaining tile chips in the ground construction at high speed, and at the same time realize the rapid cleaning of dust through fast-rotating bristles.

It can be used as a mobile pumping station to provide power for hand-held hydraulic picks and other hydraulic tools. The multi-functional sliding equipment can provide a variety of models and flow hydraulic interfaces to ensure diversity and availability at the same time. It also can be directly used for snow removal and cleaning machines benefiting from the mobility of the equipment itself, ensuring the effective large-scale work of other related equipment.

The Belt and Road policy

The Chinese government initiated the belt and road policy to  provide powerful and beneficial policy support for China's export business. In recent years,  cross-border e-commerce has developed at a fast speed and the influence of " Make in China" in the world is growing. The equipment manufacturers sell products with competitive prices and good quality, which always gain customers' loyalty.

Flexible and multifunctional

Compared with the compact or front loader, the skid steer loader's feature of small size and weight make it popular and used more. With the advantage of lighter weight, the skid steer loader can be transported conveniently to another construction field to support other equipment to work. It can be equipped with different kinds of attachments, for example, backhoe, metal forks, trencher, ripper, snow blower and many others to perform a variety of jobs. Easy to install and replace make the skid steer loader like a "transformer".
