Skid steers aren’t mammoth pieces of construction equipment, but what they lack in size, they more than make up for in versatility and maneuverability. A skid steer loader’s compactness and agility allows it to go where larger machines cannot venture, making it ideal for applications that require working in tight spaces. And with the wide assortment of tools and attachments that are available with most models, one skid steer is often capable of performing the role of many machines, which can result in substantial cost savings for any construction company.

The Skid Steer's Origin
Virtually every type of construction equipment has an interesting story behind its beginnings and skid steers are certainly not an exception.
Louis and Cyril Keller had begun thinking using a type of skid steer in the mid-1950s.The brothers arrived a barnyard in western Minnesota in 1958 to speak with a farmer about a machine they had that could help him clean up manure more efficiently. The farmer was not impressed with what he saw was a 'big toy.' But the brothers were unfazed by the farmer's initial skepticism, so, they proceeded to demonstrate their 'toy' by cleaning the farm 'for free. The farmer changed his in mind in a hurry and immediately ordered two of these skid steers for himself.
