When it comes to digging and excavation equipment, a skid steer is one of the most compact and versatile workhorses on the market. Light, versatile, and highly maneuverable, skid steers can also be customized for your project needs. Operators can attach a wide range of attachments to help bring ease, efficiency, and productivity to the jobsite. Maximize your ROI today. In this edition of the Ditch Witch West blog, let’s take a look at some of our top skid steer attachments.
Top Attachments for Your Skid Steer
From fork attachments to auger attachments, we offer a wide range of attachments for your stand-on or mini skid steer. Let’s highlight a few of our most widely used attachments.
Hole creation takes a lot of time and labor. Whether you’re installing fence posts or planting trees, hand-digging and hand-held augers are effective, but often slow and laborious. With auger attachments you can expedite the process and quickly cut through soft materials. Auger attachments are ideal for landscaping and tree care, and are some of our most widely used stand-on skid steer attachments.
While an auger helps with landscaping and digging through more soft materials, a microtrenching attachment is designed to cut through concrete and asphalt. If you’re doing fiber installation or other street-located construction and excavation projects, microtrenchers can turn your skid steer into a powerhouse. With microtrenching attachments, cut down on labor time while saving on traffic blockages and redirections when doing street-located work.
#3 Backfill Blade Attachments
With backfill blade attachments, your mini skid steer is able to quickly fill in trenches and holes. Plus, these attachments can help move loose materials around the jobsite while helping to level out uneven surfaces.
#4 Bucket Attachments
When you use a bucket attachment on your skid steer, you’re able to move around heavy materials in bulk, reducing labor and time spent going back-and-forth within the jobsite. Are you moving around more unstable material? A grapple bucket comes with hydraulic clamps, working efficiently while securing materials within the bucket and eliminating risks of spillage. Talk to our product specialists to gauge the best bucket attachment for your landscaping, tree care, and excavation needs.
#5 Rake Attachments
From cultivators to tillers, rake attachments are a small-scale farmer or landscaper’s best friend. These attachments are designed to clean, level, and prep job sites. This allows operators to move quickly between jobs and cut down on prep time and cleanup.
