5 Reasons to Rent a Skid Steer for Snow Removal 

Do You Use Skid Steers For Snow Removal?

Skid Steers are agile machines designed for a variety of uses year-round. They may be small, but they sure are mighty. A winterized skid steer loader is the perfect match for any snow removal project.

As you prepare for winter projects, keep these five uses for winter skids steers in mind to get the most out of your work.  

Precision Snow Removal

The small skid steer allows the operator to out in corners, clear curbs, and remove snow from parking lots. They are great for precision work that big wheel loaders or a tractor with a blade simply can’t.

Small Spaces

Clear sidewalks and work between buildings with this agile and compact machine. When hand shoveling is too much work but a tractor or telehandler is too big, a skid steer is the answer.

Pushing, Lifting & Loading Snow

The bucket attachment is also great to push snow efficiently. With the option for either wheeled or tracked skid steers, a skid steer with snow tires and the right size bucket is a truly powerful pushing and piling tool for snow. 


There are a variety of attachments that help to make the skid steer truly diverse for snow removal. Buckets, forks, brooms, snow blowers, angled plows and pushers can be attached to maximize the usage of your machine. Gather, scoop, sweep and spread salt like a pro with a skid steer. 

Loading Trucks

Although skid steers are great for removing snow in small areas and for precision snow clearing, they can also be used to remove snow or relocate it around a property. They can also be used to load ice melting or repelling materials such as salt or sand.

Snow piles, icy sidewalks, and parking lots are no match for skid steers. They turn on a dime and fit on sidewalks, cut in the edges of large parking lots, and clear loading docks and small parking lots.

So only one question remains:

Are you ready for winter?
