What can a skid steer do for landscaping?

When it comes to running a landscaping business, skid steers are a reliable piece of equipment that can help you get the job done. Skid steers can help lessen some of the heavy, manual labor involved in landscaping. With a variety of attachments, you can lift, pull, dig, and more with ease, while their compact size helps them fit in tighter areas than larger equipment.


Small-sized for greater maneuverability.

With their compact size, skid steers are easily maneuverable through tight spaces while still being able to lift and perform other tasks. The John Deere G-Series skid steers are already compact in size but can be made to fit into even tighter spaces by different wheel options.


Mulching, chipping, stump removal.

Landscaping projects that require stump removal can be daunting, but they don’t have to be when you have a skid steer to help you get the job done. Make stump removal and chipping or mulching a breeze with a G-Series skid steer. In just one pass, a G-Series skid steer with a high-torque stump shredder can remove stumps 28 inches in diameter or smaller and safely shred them.


Tilling & Planting attachments.

If you are needing to prep space for gardening or to redo a lawn, a rotary tiller is a great attachment to help you do just that. With a rotary tiller attachment for your skid steer, you can break up the soil and ensure it is clod-free to create a fine, level seedbed to work with. Another great attachment to help with land preparation is a power rake. These are useful for rock raking, site development, and more.
