Posted by: Samuel Hirshfield on February 10, 2014
During the colder months of the year, the amount of construction and landscape design projects usually takes a big dip. While you probably think of using a skid steer as a smart choice to clear and refill land, its capabilities extend beyond that. Using a skid steer for snow removal makes getting an otherwise backbreaking and tedious job much easier and faster to do. Learn how you can use one of these mighty machines to your advantage today.
Using a Skid Steer for Snow Removal
A skid steer is capable of lifting thousands of pounds of material at once, and snow is included. Because they can be easily maneuvered through various terrains, creating level pathways through snow isn't a problem. So why spend hours of your time strenuously shoveling through such tough elements when a skid steer can do it for you?
Some basic features of skid steers include:
- They're tough enough to be able to take on both residential and commercial projects.
- The controls are user-friendly.
- Driving a skid steer is easier on your back than shoveling snow.
- They're very maneuverable.
- They can cut through packed in snow, making pathways that are smooth and level.
Renting a Skid Steer

For most people the most financially wise option is to rent a skid steer.
