Attachments make it easier to handle many tasks on a construction site with a skid steer loader.

RSBM Bucket

Those working on a construction site often need a better way to lift and move heavy materials. These include building materials, dirt, and soil, or other pieces of equipment. Using a general-purpose bucket attached to the skid steer loader is a helpful option. Buckets are available in various sizes, weights, and styles, including a bucket with bolt-on teeth that offers better scooping power. The standard widths are 60, 72, 78, and 84 inches.

RSBM Dozer Blade

Bulldozer blades are useful for plowing, bulldozing, and moving heavy materials that are difficult to pick up and move. There are various sizes and styles available, so it’s easy to find a blade that works for any construction project. A dozer blade can also grade and level the ground in preparation for pouring concrete or laying a foundation.

Some construction companies choose to use bulldozers for these tasks, but attaching a dozer blade to a skid steer loader is a cost-effective option. A supervisor can also save time since he or she won’t have to spend additional time training laborers on how to use separate pieces of equipment.

RSBM Snow Blower

When the winter season hits, many construction and maintenance companies find their business slows down dramatically. This is especially the case in areas with cold and snowy winters. Smaller companies can take on more work by offering additional services, such as snow removal. Apartment complexes, businesses, and HOAs are often looking for snow removal services to keep their clients and tenants safe. Simply attach a snow blower or plow attachment to your skid steer loader, and you can easily offer this service.

Snow blowers work well when you’re dealing with a lot of snow. A snow plow can clear a path on a sidewalk or road for safer walking and driving. If your company would like to offer this service, renting snow equipment for the winter is an affordable way to pick up extra business.

RSBM Trencher

Construction, farming, and even landscaping jobs can all benefit from a trencher attachment. This powerful and balanced tool can dig straight, narrow trenches in various depths. Even small skid steer loaders can support trenchers that dig up to 10 inches in width and 36 inches in depth. Larger options can dig trenches up to 12 inches wide and 60 inches deep. Common trenching needs include utility lines, drain pipes, footings, and irrigation sprinkler systems.

RSBM Pallet Fork

In a warehouse or other industrial setting, you might need to lift and stack pallets of products. Instead of investing in a forklift for your commercial location, simply add a pallet attachment to your skid steer loader. The attachment is especially useful in a warehouse because staff turnover can be high. Training new team members on how to use multiple pieces of equipment take a lot of time. When you only have one main piece of equipment, your staff will learn it quickly and feel confident when using it.

Various attachments, like the pallet fork, make it easier to use the skid steer loader for many functions. A pallet fork is available in several sizes: 42, 48, and 60 inches. This attachment has two prongs sticking out from a flat, vertical base that supports pallets and keeps them steady when moving and stacking.
