No mechanical transmission: A premium hydraulic motor powers each side of a skid steer loader. These two motors each connect to a partner sprocket, and each of these sprockets then connects through industrial chains to the wheels. This simple yet streamlined system allows for the power generated by the motors to evenly distribute to the wheels, as well as reduce gear wear and increase wheel torque capabilities. The no-mechanical transmission design is as timeless as technology gets.

Hammers: Hammers ensure you never have to worry about breaking through hard surfaces on the job again. From sheetrock to concrete, hammers are designed for hard-hitting impact at high blows per minute while absorbing vibrational recoil that may reach the side steer. Many hammers, new and used, even feature automatic shut-off and sound-buffering capabilities for safety and noise control.

Designed for the toughest jobs in the roughest conditions, a Cat skid steer can be the workhorse of your operation. With big iron features and operating capacities ranging from 1,400 to 3,600 lbs., its stability and lifting performance provide excellent material handling. The new generation of Cat skid steer loaders feature improved controls, greater fuel efficiency, and a wide range of tooling options.
Skid steer loaders, the "Swiss Army Knives" of machines, use a wide range of mechanical and hydraulically powered attachments to accomplish varied tasks. Skid loaders, having sophisticated auxiliary hydraulic systems, are compact, highly maneuverable, and range in rated operating capacity (the weight that can be safely lifted and transported) from 500 to more than 4,000 pounds.

There are currently eight different models of Cat skid steers. Loaders are available with a net flywheel power capacity ranging from 47 hp to 106 hp, and a rated operating capacity from 1400 lbs. to an impressive 3700 lbs. Some models are equipped with Cat C3.8 and Cat C3.3B DIT turbocharged engines for additional power and performance. All Cat skid steer loaders are designed for easy serviceability, so you keep your machine properly maintained and in peak operating condition at all times.

This machine size's ROC allows it to lift the heaviest loads, such as moving pallets of brick or dumping loads of dirt into the back of trucks. "These machines also have the horsepower and hydraulic flow to tackle tough jobs and attachments," says Rostberg. "Attachments that perform best with a high-flow machine, such as a wheel saw or planer for road construction or a forestry cutter for site preparation, work best with these machines."
Applications that require the extra horsepower, such as dozing work, are also a good fit for large skid-steer loaders. "Basically, the large-frame skid steers are going to do the heavy lifting for a contractor," says Zupancic. "When they need a big machine to do the hard work on a big site, but they still need maximum manueverablity and versatility, they'll turn to a large skid steer."
The new Cat 272D skid steer and 299D compact track loader are joined by high-performance counterparts, the 272D XHP and 299D XHP, which are the largest, most powerful skid steer and compact track loaders Caterpillar has built. The electronically controlled Cat C3.8 engine, which meets EPA Tier 4 Interim and European Stage IIIB emissions standards, is equipped with the Cat NOx Reduction System.
