The Skid Steer Loader, Workhorse of the Demolition Industry

Skid Steer Loader - Demolition Contractor

One of the most versatile machines on any construction or demolition project is the skid steer loader, a compact, rigid-framed, engine-powered machine with lift arms that can be fitted with a variety of different tools and attachments. They have four wheels, while their multi-terrain counterparts have tracks. Often referred to as a “bobcat”, the skid steer is manufactured by various equipment makers including Bobcat, John Deere, Caterpillar, Gehl and many more. Skid steers are ubiquitous on R. Baker & Son demolition projects, and one or more skid steers can usually be seen on any given jobsite 

Skid steers are light and can be easily transported, and on a construction or demolition jobsite can be lifted via freight elevator or rigged by crane. They are highly maneuverable and can turn within their own footprint, allowing them to operate in tight spaces. Skid steers are easy to operate using two joysticks, one that controls direction and one that controls the loader. 

There are dozens of attachment options available for the skid steer including buckets, augers, hammers, brooms, saws, forks, rippers, scrapers, backhoes and more. Operating capacities range from 800 lbs. to over two tons. On the demolition or construction site, skid steer loaders are used to move debris, gravel, snow, sand, cement, dirt, etc., and can lift and manage tools and materials such as rebar, pipe, conduit, tool boxes, and air compressors. Demolition attachments commonly include shears and hydraulic breakers for demolishing walls, floors and ceilings.
