What’s your favorite way to move snow? Are you a fan of blades? Pushers? Just a plain old loader bucket? How many of you have tried out a high-capacity snow bucket? We’ve got 96 inch and 108 inch heavy-duty snow buckets that are ready for action on a large skid steer or compact wheel loader! We’re talking about a 2.36 cubic yard heaped capacity bucket that fits onto almost any standard skid steer mounting plate: 2.67 cubic yards heaped capacity for the 108 inch bucket. Add these to your snow fleet and you’re in business! Just look at the difference between a hi-cap bucket and a standard loader bucket: Continue reading

On the heels of the recent Heavy Equipment Guide article on Hyundai Series 9 Single and Tandem-Drum Rollers, we welcomed the newest addition to our compaction roller lineup here, the HR70C-9. It’s a single-drum model, designed primarily for soil and aggregate compaction. A pad foot (or “sheep’s-foot”) kit can be attached to the drum to aid in compression, due to smaller areas that contact the ground. Questions? Our equipment experts love questions and are here to help. We sell Hyundai compact rollers, and they’re also a part of our rental fleet.
This winter New Holland introduced a bigger radial lift skid steer: the L221. We got our hands on one and decided to see how it compares to the other radial lift skids in New Holland’s fleet. We’ve had both L213 and L215 skid steers in the past and really liked their productivity, so we were excited to test the newest model.
The L221 is equipped with a 74 hp engine and a 2,100 lb. operating capacity. That makes it by far the most powerful of the radial lift skid class. Radial lift skid steers have an advantage over vertical lifts in a few areas like forward reach, which make it an ideal machine for pushing, grading or clearing brush. The engine and lift specs put it right in between the L220 and L223, both vertical lift models. If you’ve got any questions on which type of skid steer is best for you give our sales department a call and we’ll get you pointed in the right direction. Some prefer radial, some vertical, but in the end the work you’re doing will help decide. Continue reading
We just got in a couple of brand new Z700 mowers from Kubota and we’re excited to get them out in the field this season. They’re brand new to the market and have a whole slew of new features all designed to maximize the operator experience. They still have all the hallmarks of Kubota mowers: smooth and stable operation, quality-built mower decks, easy maintenance – but they’ve expanded the amenities to include things like a deck height adjustment dial, wider operator platform, tool box and an easy-to-read, ergonomic instrument panel. It’s a commercial mower that can handle a hard days work without going hard on your operator. Continue reading
