A Skid Steer is a vehicle maneuvered by skid steering. Skid steering is a method of steering by braking or driving tracks or wheels on one side of a vehicle. Skid steering equipment include skid steered tracked vehicles and a skid steer loader. A Skid Steer is a small, usually wheeled vehicle used for loading and digging.
A Skid Steer's small size and maneuverability allows them to operate in tight spaces. Their light weight allows them to be towed behind a full-size pickup truck, and the wide array of work-tools makes them very flexible. The machines can also grade, jackhammer cement and load trucks, as well as many other tasks which make it a very versatile piece of equipment.
