Posi Track vs Skid Steer Loader – Which is Better?

Within the construction industry, there have been many tough decisions being made. This tough decision is the choice between a wheeled skid steer loader or tracked skid steer loader. Skid steer loaders are mini front-end loaders, where they are able to carry materials to and from the worksite while also digging trenches and holes for various earthworks projects.


Wheeled and tracked skid steer loaders are able to be utilised for a range of projects including:


  • Bulk excavation
  • Bulk Earthworks
  • Grading
  • Demolition
  • Debris Removal
  • Overhead Work
  • Road Maintenance
  • Farming
  • And more…

Wheeled skid steer loaders are by far the most utilised skid steer loader in the construction industry and can tackle a lot of earthworks projects you require. One benefit to wheeled bobcats is the initial acquisition cost. Wheel skid steers are seen to be the cheaper option to hire or buy as there is less maintenance required. There is less undercarriage and wheel components that need to be replaced. Wheel skid steer loaders often perform better on roads and flat ground.

Wheeled Skid Steer Loader Benefits

Tracked skid steer loaders unlike wheeled skid steer loaders are less common in today’s industry but are slowly creeping up. Tracked skid steer loaders however are seen as the much more versatile loader and can complete more projects in varying conditions. From muddy terrain to hilly locations, the tracked posi track can undertake all earthworks projects. Posi tracks also have low ground pressure, resulting in less ground disturbance and overall ground damage. This also allows the posi track to disperse its weight over the length and width of the tracks, giving the machine more stability. The tracks also allow for a smooth and stable ride, increasing operator productivity due to more comfort and less fatigue.
