Skid-Lift announced the production of its scissor lift skid steer attachment for construction, maintenance and agricultural industries. The Skid-Lift is a powerful but easy-to-operate attachment that allows work crews to reach up to 27 ft. (14 m) in the air, with 4 degree tilt and a stable working platform in the air. The company has teamed up with Norwood Sales of Horace, N.D., to handle distribution of its product, which is available for sale now.

“We are excited to bring Skid-Lift to market. It represents years of design and engineering work that delivers convenience and a major cost savings to skid steer owners and rental stores,” said Guy Nelson, president of Skid-Lift.

“By eliminating expensive components, such as pumps, hydraulic drive motors, wheels, and batteries used on standalone scissor lifts, Skid-Lift provides a lower cost of entry and ownership,” said Nelson.

“This unit will go anywhere my Bobcat will go. On our old unit, we had to lay down plywood to get anywhere with it on soft ground,” said Brad Johnson of Johnson Farms.?
