The Best Skid Steer Land Clearing Attachments
One of the many applications of skid steer loaders is their ability to clear land. To do so, operators can equip these versatile machines with a range of different attachments depending on the specific job they need to complete. Below, we have listed some of the best skid steer land clearing attachments for your reference.
6-Way Dozer Blade Attachment
A 6-way dozer blade is a robust, sturdy attachment that is ideal for more complex and challenging land clearing jobs. For example, this durable blade is often used for spreading topsoil, hard pan digging, and other major earth-moving operations for which a standard blade is not sufficient.
Essentially, a 6-way skid steer dozer blade is a type of attachment that can tilt in six different directions, which makes it possible to move land and debris from nearly any angle. For optimum performance, McLaren’s 6-way dozer blade is made with some of the thickest plates of steel on the market and includes a power tilt system to eliminate the need for manual adjustments and offer optimal control.
4-in-1 Bucket Attachment
To reduce the amount of time it takes you to complete a land-clearing project, the 4-in-1 bucket is a great option. This innovative attachment essentially combines the capabilities of three different attachments in one incredibly useful tool. Some of the many different functions that a 4-in-1 bucket can perform include dozing, loading, raking, digging, carrying, and dumping.
At McLaren, we designed our OEM 4-in-1 bucket attachment to meet or exceed OEM specifications, handle the toughest jobs, and perform well in any environment for long-term operation. Depending on your preference, we offer this useful attachment with either welded- or bolted-on cutting edges.
Stump Bucket Attachment
As its name suggests, a stump bucket attachment is highly beneficial for clearing out tree stumps as well as roots and large rocks. Because encountering such large obstacles can greatly slow down a project, this attachment is ideal for maintaining efficiency and productivity on busy jobs.
Depending on your needs, McLaren offers hydraulic and non-hydraulic stump bucket attachments. Both of our stump bucket options make it easy to cut and rip out roots due to their serrated sides and extra-long teeth. Our stump buckets also provide universal hookup for easy installation and include an angled fulcrum for unbeatable leverage.
Root Rake Grapple Bucket Attachment
When you require an attachment with more specialized capabilities, a multipurpose attachment isn’t typically ideal. In the case that you need to clear away tree roots and limbs, rake rocks, or push debris into piles without causing significant soil disruption, a root rake grapple bucket attachment proves highly useful.
McLaren’s root rake grapple bucket attachment is particularly durable and versatile due to its optimized tine spacing—which allows operators to rake large areas quickly—and the extra-large opening that makes it easier to move oversized and heavier loads in minimal passes.
Log Grapple Bucket Attachment
Another one of the best skid steer land clearing attachments is the log grapple bucket attachment. When operators need to scoop up or move heavy timber, debris, or other loads quickly and accurately across a job site, log grapple bucket attachments are essential. At McLaren, our skid steer log grapple bucket attachment features a wide bottom lip and an acute angle tine shape. Such characteristics make it easier to keep loads in place as well as lift bulky logs with minimum balancing effort.
