Skid-steer: versatile tool, ever-present hazard
Few pieces of equipment on a job site are more frequently called upon than the skid-steer. Track loader, multi-terrain loader, whatever name you know it by, the skid-steer has helped many individuals in a jam when no other loader could reach the problem. But it is precisely these closed quarters and frequent use that make the skid-steer so dangerous. A moment of inattention can add up to a lifetime of regret without the proper training.
