Exceptional service differentiates Mclaren from its competitors." - Rob Pagacz (Bobcat S300 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "Tires are still working out great.

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...

Which Skid Steer Attachments Need High Flow?

Which Skid Steer Attachments Need High Flow?

When it comes to increasing the power of your large-scale equipment, the flow of your skid steer’s hydraulic system is a crucial thing to consider. While most skid steer attachments run just fine with a standard flow skid steer machine, having a high flow model can help you get more from certain attachments in the long term. Rather than discuss which skid steer attachments need high flow capabilities, it’s more accurate to break down which ones could achieve better performance with access to high flow. These are some of the attachment products that stand out.

Trencher Attachments

High flow trenchers, for one, are great for increasing the pace at which you cut through hard, rocky soil. Standard flow models are usually just as effective. But by upgrading to a high flow attachment, you can improve your jobsite efficiency and know that your product can keep up regardless of how fast you need to move. Standard flow attachments can stall out when pushed too hard.

Brush Cutter Attachments

Brush cutters can also benefit from a high flow system because they provide more power to cut through thick undergrowth. However, this isn’t required, as most brush cutter attachments still function optimally with access to standard flow. If you choose to use one of these attachments on a high flow skid steer, make sure they have matching motors to minimize equipment strain and damage.

Auger Attachments

Augers receive more hydraulic flow, creating more torque when used with a high flow skid steer. The additional power from this can make cutting through particularly rocky soil more effective. Keep in mind that you may need to use a more specialized bit matching the soil condition with these augers so that they don’t accidentally twist off during a job. High flow machine used a capable auger is still one of the most effective ways to break through tough soil conditions and get to the job at hand.

Rotary Tiller Attachments

Rotary tillers are another type of skid steer attachment that many often think needs high flow capabilities. However, they operate just as well with standard flow. Like trenchers, the main benefit high flow brings to these products is an increase in operational speed. With a high flow tiller, you can till harder ground much faster and improve job efficiency.

Concrete Planer Attachments

Concrete planers are an example of a product that only works using high flow. Otherwise, they simply can’t get the power or speed they need to correctly plane concrete. Keep this in mind when performing any construction or foundation-laying jobs.

Snow Blower Attachments

Snow blower attachments are a good fit for high flow skid steers as well. These devices receive extra power from the equipment, making it possible to shoot snow anywhere from five to ten feet further than standard flow models. This makes snow removal easier, faster, and more effective.

If you’re looking for attachments that work well with your high flow skid steer, McLaren Industries has a premium selection for you to pick from.
