Buyers Guide for Compact Construction Equipment in Missouri

JD Skid Steer
SOLVED: The best small framed construction equipment for your job

One of the keys to being efficient and productive is having machinery you can depend on. Dependability should be one of the main factors you consider when choosing the right compact construction equipment for your operation. As you compare equipment, it is important to consider what type of jobs you will be doing and the environment you will be working in. Some of the pieces of equipment we will be going over can be used for the same types of work but some are optimized for working on compact ground while others are designed to excel on loose soil. Also, keep in mind how much you would like to spend and if you are going to need a machine that can handle heavy-duty jobs.

Skid Steers & Compact Track Loaders

Skid steers and compact track loaders are often referred to as the same machines. Most of the time people call compact track loaders track skid steers, and for the most part that’s correct. They have very similar designs, but there is one main differentiator: one has tires and one has tracks. These machines are some of the most versatile pieces of equipment on a construction site. In fact, they are so versatile they have also made their way into the agricultural realm of work where they more than hold their own. Compact track loaders and skid steers are used for grading, lifting heavy loads, and hauling materials among various other tasks. They are also no strangers to demolition projects and warehouse work.

Compact Wheel Loaders

Compact wheel loaders are one of the most straightforward pieces of construction equipment. They are designed for hauling and loading material. They have a front-end loader and are most commonly seen on construction sites with a bucket but they can also use other attachments such as grapples and pallet forks. These machines are great to use on jobs where you need more ground clearance and greater breakout and hauling capacity than a smaller piece of equipment can offer.

Compact excavators are some of the most common machines on construction sites. They are designed with a boom and a bucket attached to a rotating base that is mounted on two tracks. These machines are designed to dig holes, move rocks, and haul materials. Excavators are commonly used to prepare job sites, dig foundations and trenches, repair sewer lines, and dig pools and small ponds. John Deere's compact excavators operating weights range from 3,790 lb. to 13,620 lbs.
