What type of projects would require a skid steer or an excavator?
A skid steer is a versatile piece of equipment that can be used for a variety of tasks. It is most commonly used for digging, grading, loading, and excavating. It is suitable for residential and commercial tasks such as landscaping, grading, moving soil, and other small–scale excavation projects. It can also be used for tasks such as snow removal and demolition.
An excavator is a larger piece of equipment that is used primarily for excavation projects. It is suitable for larger projects such as digging foundations, moving earth for construction projects, and trenching. It has a bucket arm which can be used to dig, scoop, lift, and carry heavy material. It is most commonly used for commercial tasks such as road construction, site preparation, and large–scale excavation projects. It is also suitable for residential projects such as landscaping, grading, and excavation.
When deciding between a skid steer and a excavator, it is important to consider the scope and size of the project. Smaller tasks such as landscaping, grading, and moving soil are best suited for a skid steer, while larger projects such as road construction and excavation are best suited for an excavator. It is also important to consider the types of materials being moved, as an excavator is better suited for large and heavy materials than a skid steer.
