Skid-steers, available from Hyundai Construction Equipment Australia , are suitable for earthmoving contractors and are common on construction sites. A range of attachments for skid-steers are available.

Skid-steers are designed to access tight areas and have higher capacity units with a range of attachments. According to Hyundai Construction Equipment Australia, skid-steers with accessories are an alternative to crawler excavators. Skid-steers can provide fuel savings and are easy to transport and deploy onto construction sites with tight access.

Hyundai Construction Equipment Australia note that the new track-based skid-steers enable operators to work on rough terrains. Improved safety and monitoring systems make for a safer machine and in turn a safer construction site. Operator comfort has also improved due to the ergonomic cabin design and suspension and anti-vibration systems.

Following are the skid-steer attachments:

  • hydraulic rock breakers
  • brush mowers
  • forklift attachments
  • stump grinders
  • augers
  • rock saws
  • grapplers
  • trenching attachments
  • cold planers
  • pole claws
  • vibrating rollers
Hyundai Construction Equipment Australia offer HSL650 and HSL 850 skid-steer models, which provide a range of features including a quick attachment system and an optional self-levelling control system, so that the operator can concentrate on manoeuvring and lifting tasks for fast cycle times.
