How skid steer loaders work
The two hydraulic arms are hinged behind the cab where the operator is seated; the arms lift beside the cab. This keeps the compact nature of skid steer loaders, but requires extra attention to the safety of the operator. The cab is enclosed to protect the operator from danger as the arms lift by their sides and over their head.
The name skid steer loader comes from the way the machine is driven. The wheels are fixed to the sides of the rigid body and can only spin on one axis, not change orientation. Instead of turning, the wheels on the right side are operated independently of those on the left. When the wheels on one side rotate at a different speed from the other the loader skids and changes direction. The operator controls the loader with joystick controls inside the cab.
