Different Types Of Skid Steer Loaders
One of the first things you should consider when thinking about maintenance or repairs for your skid steer loader, is what brand and model you have. Additionally, you should consider if you have a new loader or a secondhand loader. Make sure to check with the user manual and manufacturer recommendations to get estimates on necessary maintenance and repairs for your equipment. If you buy a used loader you may need maintenance at an earlier point or at a more frequent rate. You should always look out for signs that you need general repairs when you are working.
Signs That Your Skid Steer Needs Repairs
One of the first signs that your skid steer loader might need repairs is that it is underperforming. If you notice that there are issues while you move materials around your property or issues with speed or maneuverability, this could all be signs that it is time to get repairs. Just like with any truck or car, the earlier you get repairs, the better. Scheduling repairs and maintenance early can prevent issues from getting worse or spreading. Most skid-steer loaders utilize hydraulic systems that may need repairs or replacement parts over time.
Inspect Attachments & Tires
Another thing to always stay aware of is your attachments and tires. If you notice damage to your tires or your attachments, you should replace them on the early side. Damaged tires can make it very difficult to get the necessary traction you need when working so it is important to check your tires and have spares on hand.
