Bobcat S70 Skidsteer Loader
If you are looking for a small loader which can work within confined and limited spaces, then the Bobcat S70 Skidsteer Loader is the choice for you. As one of the easiest machines to manoeuvre, it can be used both indoors and outdoors with the correct fume extractors attached. The machine is 6 ft tall and 3 ft wide and can be used in many small places including corridors, aisles, alleys, gates, and narrow doorways.
As the ideal middle ground between a large machine and a shovel, the S70 will be great for working under low ceilings. More than 20 different attachments are available, giving you the ability to transform the machine you are working with. The machine has a tipping load of 686 kg and weighs up to 1,263 kg, making it light and agile enough in any situation.
The lift arms on the loader have two lift path options. Vertical lift provides more reach at full lift height and the radius lift give a maximum lift at truck bed height. Side to side lift arm movement is reduced by the patented, durable single-plane design.

The Importance of Maintaining Woodland
When it comes to the forestry and woodland that surrounds us, it is incredibly important that we work to maintain this. There are economical and environmental reasons behind the maintenance of woodland and understanding these can help to demonstrate the importance of this. Some of the main benefits include:
- Upkeeping wildlife habitat
- Landscape for recreation
- Absorbing greenhouse gases and carbon dioxide
- Providing shelter for animals and people
- Hide buildings or eyesores
- Add oxygen to our environment
- Sustainable timber production
- Income for sports
- Enhancing property values
- Planting for business opportunities
We understand that carrying out any forestry care requires careful control and preparation. Our team at SkidSteer Hire Solutions are on hand to help provide you with the machinery and attachments you need to complete any maintenance you are responsible for. Some of the attachments that we hold include mulching heads, wheel saws, flail cutters, tree stump grinders, trenchers, fork and grab, and combination buckets.
