Skid Steer Sizes

If you need to use a skid steer loader on your job site, you have to choose the size that works best for your project. Typically, skid steer loaders are relatively smaller, yet there are still different sizes of skid steer loaders that you can buy. A skid steer loader's size is defined as the size of the frame, plus weight, power and capacity.

You may be wondering, how big of a skid steer loader will I need? Well, the answer lies in your planned use. Below are several advantages for each size group.

  • Small

You are probably going to choose a smaller skid steer loader if you want to use it to work in tight spaces, such as inside demolition or underground construction, or for sophisticated work such as landscaping.

The smaller skid steer loaders are lighter, thus they are easier to transport to and manoeuvre during the job. Ti-han 0.75Ton Skid Steer Loader is an ideal choice for a small-sized skid steer loader.


  • Medium

A great, versatile alternative is the medium skid steer loader, which is still relatively small and light but can provide more power and capability than a smaller skid steer loader.

Armed with proper attachments, these skid steer loaders can be a useful tool for digging in tight spaces where larger equipment won't fit. For example, there are several products you can choose from:

"0.9Ton Skid Steer Loader WS65 Series"

"0.95Ton Skid Steer Loader WS75 Series"

"0.95Ton Skid Steer Loader WS85 Series"

  • Large

Large skid steer loaders are the best choice for heavy applications such as large demolition projects, backhoe work and road construction.

Large skid steer loaders have heavier traction than smaller skid steer loaders and are not adept at manoeuvring in tight spaces. Ti-han 1.25 Ton Skid Steer Loader is a good option available in the market.

What Can A Skid Steer Loader Do?



Skid steer loaders are effective for both interior and exterior demolition projects. With demolition shears, skid steer loaders can help remove floors, concrete, drywall or other materials.

Because of their compact size and precision, skid steer loaders are especially effective for demolition projects in tight spaces, for example when you're tearing down homes in neighbourhoods where there are other homes nearby.

Road clearing and maintenance

For road construction, skid steer loaders will be a must. It can do road grading, move dirt around, load it into trucks and carry it away. And it performs demolition work on existing roads or digs out holes.

When finished, using the broom attachment, it can clear up any road dirt and debris left behind. From material removal to material pushing, skid steer loaders are essential for road clearing and maintenance.

Snow removing

For big parking lots and larger areas, the use of a skid steer loader is necessary to remove snow effectively and quickly. Skid steer loaders can easily push snow out of parking lots.

Unlike pickup trucks, they can lift and load snow and carry it to dumping sites if needed. With good traction in the snow and a comfortable heated cab, they are very efficient to use as a snowplough when fitted with an attachment shovel and bucket.

Excavating, digging and trenching

Skid steer loaders are beneficial for earthmoving jobs such as excavating, trenching and digging. Based on your specific needs, you can use a wide range of attachments for these jobs.

A few examples include backhoes, augers, trenchers and wheel saws. with the proper attachments, a skid steer loader can dig anything from the entire foundation of a building to a narrow hole.

Grading and backfilling

You can also use a skid steer loader to fill in pits, grade the ground and aerate the ground. You can use a forklift for these tasks, but a rake attachment or levelling bar will work better when grading the ground.

Having these attachments also allows you to scoop up rocks while levelling the ground without leaving large trenches. For jobs that are lower to the ground, instead of a vertical lift, you can use a radial lift skid steer loader.


You may be impressed by the fact that a skid steer loader can also be used for the function of mowing grass. Equipped with a rotary brush cutter, a skid steer loader can cut down tall grass and other growth to efficiently mow an area.

It can even cut down some small trees. Since skid steer loaders are zero-turn, they provide the mowing precision you need, but at the same time have more capability than a typical riding mower.


We've mentioned above some of the roles that a skid steer loader can play in regard to landscaping jobs. Examples of other landscaping jobs you can do with it are stump grinding, wood chipping and tilling.

A tillage attachment can be used to help mix compost or fertilizer into the soil. Having a bucket allows you to transport materials such as gravel or mulch as well as landscaping tools that you otherwise will have to push with a wheelbarrow.
