Exceptional service differentiates Mclaren from its competitors." - Rob Pagacz (Bobcat S300 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "Tires are still working out great. Tons of hours left on them!" - Levi McDermott (Mustang 2086 skid steer loader);                                                                                           "Made my bobcat work like a Cat dozer; Easy on off" - Roy Young (Bobcat S250 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "I think you make a superior product..." - Eric Wellish, (Case 1845C skid steer loader);                                                                                           "I really like the traction that I get from my tracks, and will most likely consider repurchasing when needed... I have the TDF series track." - Scott Robinson (Takeuchi TL 150 compact track loader);                                                                                           "Your Protrac rubber have saved me thousands of dollars! I rented a track machine for one month prior to having your tracks, that rental cost would have covered the cost of the McLarens. I was expecting to have bought a new machine, but there has been no reason to as the OTTs have added lift capacity, stability, a softer ride, and of course traction beyond my wildest expectations. My machine rep is not happy with your product, no sale for him... Could not be happier, literally!" - Simon Huxtable (Bobcat 763 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The up front cost is greater than others but quality and performance far outweigh the cost." - Bearden Services (Bobcat S250 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The sales rep that handled my purchase was knowledgeable, polite, and knew his product... Good job, keep it up.

How a Compact Track Loader Can Benefit a Tree Care Company

How a Compact Track Loader Can Benefit a Tree Care Company
A wide range of industries benefits from using skid steers / CTLs for a multitude of diverse applications. Among the many fields that use these versatile machines include tree care companies. Despite its compact size, a skid steer with rubber tracks can have a huge positive impact on a tree care company’s efficiency and overall success. To understand just what makes this machine so advantageous in this industry, consult this guide on how a skid steer can benefit a tree care company.

Optimum Mobility on Smaller Job Sites

Tree care companies greatly benefit from the small, compact size of tracked skid steers. While tree care companies may provide services in large, expansive locations, they may also work in smaller, residential locations. In such cases, having a smaller machine that can navigate a narrow area and pass through fences or between trees serves as a huge advantage.

Minimal Ground Disturbance

Tree care companies often work on job sites where minimizing ground disturbance stands as a top priority. For example, when working on a residential property, they don’t want to use equipment that will tear up the lawn and leave it worse for wear.

Fortunately, skid steers have lighter bodies than larger machinery which helps keep ground damage to a minimum. To further minimize ground disturbance, operators can equip their Compact Track Loaders with rubber tracks that have smooth tread patterns rather than tires to help minimize turf damage.

Heavy Lifting Capabilities

Despite their small size, skid steers have the capacity to lift and transport heavy loads. As such, they serve as an invaluable tool on tree farms for handling large logs, scooping up large quantities of dirt, and carrying out other heavy lifting tasks that may arise.

Ease of Transport

For each job they take, tree care companies generally have to transport all their equipment and machinery from their headquarters to the job site. By using smaller equipment, the transportation process becomes far easier. For this reason, using skid steers can greatly benefit a tree car company. Some skid steers are so compact in size that companies can often transport them in a small trailer or even a pickup truck.

High Level of Versatility

Yet another way in which a skid steer can benefit a tree care company is by offering a high level of versatility. Operators can attach a wide range of attachments to skid steers depending on the job that they need to complete—from root rake grapple buckets to stump buckets. Perhaps one of the most useful skid steer attachments for the tree care industry, however, is a skid steer log grapple attachment, which can help move large logs and stumps.
