Wheeled skid steers were the only skid steer option available until tracked skid steers came onto the market.

If you’re looking for wheel skid steers for sale, this is the guide for you.
Wheeled skid steers are best used on level surfaces such as hard-packed dirt, asphalt, or concrete. They maneuver over smooth terrain quicker than tracked skid steers.
Wheel skid steers are safer to use on landscapes that can be easily ripped up by tracked skid steers. Wheel skid steers are also less expensive than their tracked counterparts.

Wheel skid steers do have a tendency to be heavy enough to sink into muddy surfaces. And, rough terrain has the potential to pop wheel skid steer tires.
It is possible with some models to add over-the-tire tracks onto each tire of a wheel skid steer.
Wheeled Skid Steer Uses
Wheel skid steers are used primarily for landscaping projects, particularly for digging tasks. They can also be used to compact loose soil.
They have two arms that can connect to a number of attachments including buckets, snowblowers, pallet forks, and more.
With tires that wear out slower than tracks, wheel skid steers are often used for roadwork, demolition, scrap, and recycling.
How do wheeled skid steers work?
The wheels on a wheel skid steer are fixed in a straight line in relation to the body of the equipment.
Turning the left and right Wheels at different speeds shifts the machine by skidding, or dragging, its wheels across the ground. This allows the machine to perform tighter turn circles within small spaces.
Wheel skid steers are typically operated with joystick controls.
How many hours will a wheeled skid steer work?
Wheel skid steers are known to last up to 5,000, or longer with proper maintenance intervals.
A wheel skid steer’s longevity depends on several factors aside from maintenance including purchase condition (i.e. new or used), wear and tear, and usage frequency.
