Choosing the Right Compact Loader
Stop Imagining, Start Doing More for Less
Your operation demands reliable and productive equipment. That’s why Heritage Tractor offers a full line of compact construction equipment to keep you on the leading edge. The John Deere G-Series Skid Steers and Compact Track Loaders offer proven functionality and customer-features that help you work smarter, not harder. Plus, Heritage Tractor offers a full worksite worth of attachments so you can bring blueprints to life.
Not every jobsite is the same, and it’s important to ensure your machine works its hardest for you. So what’s right for your worksite – skid steer or compact track loader? The answer depends on your location and job at hand. Tracks can reduce worksite destruction and easily maneuver mud and sand, while wheels operate best on hard ground. Skid steers tend to be lighter and easier to transport than their counterpart, however, track loaders are more spacious and easier on the rider.
John Deere offers many models to fit your needs, like the best-selling 317G Compact Track Loader. It offers a smaller frame than other machines in its family, but still has a vertical lift of 10 feet and a tipping load of over 6,000 lbs. With 61 horsepower, the 317G is proof that bigger is not always better.
