    John Deere Skid Steer


    These reimagined loaders rise high, pick up heavy loads, and deliver remarkable boom- and bucket-breakout forces. Plus, a low center of gravity and sure-footed balance provide exceptional agility and stability on slopes. Choose between vertical or radial lift to match your application.

    RADIAL LIFT More reach at mid-range lift heights; good for digging, grading, and backfilling. 

    VERTICAL LIFT More lift height and reach at the top of the lift path, for more stability. 


    Power lifter: Vertical-lift boom rises to a hinge-pin height of 10 feet on the 314G and 318G. 

    Boom-diggity: Radial-lift booms on the 312GR and 316GR provide powerful digging performance and generous reach at a competitive price. For even more lifting ability, opt for the 314G and 318G with vertical-lift booms that deliver outstanding lifting and truck-loading ability. 

    Carry more, spill less: Both radial- and vertical-lift designs keep the load close to the machine, for reliable stability. Low center of gravity, 30-degree bucket rollback, optional hydraulic self-leveling, and optional ride control (316GR and 318G only) also help keep buckets full and forks loaded. Add more capacity with up to two sets of counterweights.

    Skid Steer Frequently Asked Questions

    What’s the best way to order a skid steer?

    You can click on the “request a quote” button which takes you to a form where you can provide your information. Make sure to select new equipment from the drop-down list. If you’d prefer an in-person option, you can click the “find a dealer” button to locate the nearest dealer to buy a John Deere skid steer.

    What’s the difference between a radial lift and a vertical lift?

    A radial lift has a single pivot point for the loader arms, while a vertical lift has a more complex type of linkage that facilitates the motion. You can find a John Deere skid steer with either boom geometry. The radial lift reaches further at mid-height, while the vertical lift has more reach at the top.

    Do you offer tracked skid steers?

    We do offer compact tracked loaders here. Each small skid steer that we sell comes with four wheels. The wheels on the left side are mechanically linked to work together, and the same is true for the right. The left side and right side wheels operate independently.

    Are mini and small skid steers the same?

    A mini skid steer is smaller than a small skid steer. Generally, both machines can accomplish the same type of work, but mini skid steers can fit into more compact spaces. Small skid steers have an advantage when it comes to frequent digging or material handling.
