Skid Steer Snow Blower Innovation

With so many options available for skid steer snow blower attachments, how do you decide what makes one better than another? If you want something that’s high quality and able to perform well, I suggest you look at the design. Specifically, look to see if the snow blower was designed with the customer in mind.

High-quality attachments are made for both performance and longevity. They have to perform as intended for a long time. When you set out this winter, you’ll either have a skid steer snow blower that’ll get the job done or one that won’t. While there’s not a lot of middle ground, there are plenty of options to find quality skid steer snow blowers.

Here's what to look for...

Designed for optimal performance

You want everything on the blower to be sized and positioned correctly, from the motor and hoses to the fan and auger. If the components are not sized correctly for the skid loader you're using or not located in the optimal positions, the amount of snow being thrown is going to be sacrificed.

Thorough Field Testing

Before any of our skid loader attachments make it onto the market, they’re tested at our facility as well as field tested to evaluate performance and engineer any problems out of the design. When testing skid steer snow throwers at our facility, we are concerned with not only throw distance, but throw volume.

Testing at our facility as well as extensive field testing ensures a quality design and optimal performance. If anything isn’t up to expectations, we make changes until it is. Even when an attachment is ready for market, we never stop innovating.

Commitment to continuous improvement

While most issues related to the skid steer attachment design are found and corrected during the testing stage, sometimes issues do come to light after an item goes to production and has been purchased and used by customers. If any problems with our skid steer attachment designs are found, we take a look and make upgrades to eliminate the issue as part of our commitment to continuous improvement.

When we start selling a new attachment, we are always looking for feedback to learn about any challenges as well as learn of any potential features that were missed. We find customer feedback very valuable not only for current but future attachments as well.
