Benefits of a Compact Track Loader
The compact track loader operates in a very similar fashion to the skid steer but is able to move through different terrains. The standard rental comes with a smooth bucket included but customers are able to rent many of the same attachments for the compact track loader that are available with the skid steer. I can collect a lot of bones with this loader as well! The compact track loader can lift almost 3,000 lbs and it can also hold up to 0.6 cubic yards of material! This loader is much more efficient when it comes to moving in terrain like mud and snow. While uneven terrain, slopes, and muddy or snowy ground conditions can be very challenging and tough on skid-steer loaders, compact track loaders are designed and built to handle these types of conditions. Put it this way, I was riding with my owner in one of these and jumped out into the mud, I was up to my belly in mud but the track loader stayed afloat. Although it is possible to use it on harder surfaces, the operator must be careful as its tracks are more susceptible to damage compared to the skid steer. Like getting a thorn in my paw, but much worse!
I’ve smelled contractors, landscapers, and snow removers, and many other types of people coming and renting these machines to help complete their tasks. Maybe you’d like to come visit us at Black Dog Equipment and rent either a skid steer loader or a compact track loader. Oh, and I wouldn’t mind if you gave me a tummy rub while you are here!
