Skid Steer Recommendations

We really enjoy having the opportunity to visit with so many folks from different parts of the country.  A lot of folks are looking to upgrade their equipment in the upcoming months and want to know what to buy.  We are happy to give recommendations in different brands as to what works well with Top-Spread and what we know about experiences form our customers.  We always give two tiers of options; the middle level used models, or the new models that will work great.

Note: if buying new, we recommend choosing the high flow option.  It isn't that much to add to a new machine, but to rebuild in the future is quite expensive.  High Flow helps make the machine more efficient and you'll get better throw.

What We Look For:

20 or more gallons of hydraulic flow (high flow if possible)

2,500 lbs of operating capacity with weight options or 3,000 lbs if buying new
