Skid steer loaders are commonly used for construction, materials management and spreading, debris removal, transportation of heavy materials, light grading and levelling, site prep or landscape installation.
The specific uses for a skid steer depend on the size of the machine and the attachments you equip it with, but within a construction site, the skid steer will typically be the machine responsible for the heavy lifting and transportation tasks.
In order to be compliant with Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws, anyone who operates plant and equipment such as a skid steer must be qualified to do so with a Bobcat/Skid Steer licence.
Through acquiring a skid steer ticket, you would be qualified for roles in industries such as earthmoving, building, labouring and civil construction, arborist, turf and mineral resources.
It goes without saying that a skid steer ticket is an extremely valuable certification to have when you’re seeking employment, and the training is easy and affordable.
