Your compact track loader may be one of your most versatile and useful pieces of equipment. It can accomplish any heavy lifting or tough projects, whether you're at work or working at home. And depending on the attachments you use, you can expand your compact track loader's versatility tenfold. Not to mention, attachments are easy to change out yourself so you can switch between projects on a dime.
For those who are looking to dig deep into their work, augers and trenchers are a great attachment to burrow into the ground. The auger's high-power motor plows through the ground and reverse rotation allows for easy back-out. The trenchers use manual side shift for tight trenching, even when you're close to obstacles. Built-in skid shoe and indicators help you maintain control while digging and spring-loaded boom reduces stock. In other words, both attachments will give you the digging power you need to plow down or out.
Pulled up too much dirt with your auger and don't know what to do with it? Look into getting a bucket attachment to help transport large amounts of debris without loading it into a pickup by hand. Depending on what you need, you could get a construction bucket, which provides a low back plate for better operator visibility and a rounded interior for better fill-and-dump performance. Utility buckets are perfect for light, high-volume materials while foundry buckets are built for tough digging. Tooth buckets and toothbars loosen compacted substances to make collection easier, even in the toughest conditions. Buckets are a must for anyone who needs to haul debris around the yard.
If you need to stir things up, you might be interested in cutters, shredders, or mulchers. The cutter and shredder attachments eliminate the gearbox for better performance. They're durable, reliable attachments with bidirectional blades and thick, high-grade steel. Newer models also include a more visible pressure gauge and under-mounted front steel wheels. For bigger debris that needs to be chopped up, consider getting a mulcher. It uses premium carbide tools for a stronger, longer lifespan. The staggered-tool pattern reduces power draw while improving cutting speed. The new hydraulic motor provides 30% more torque to get you through even the toughest project.
But for sheer, destructive power, you'll want a hammer attachment. This tool is built to smash through concrete and break up the toughest materials. They have 30% fewer parts than previous models for easier maintenance, as well as a redesigned motor to offer two to three times more blows per minute (BPM). And tool retention means you'll only need a screwdriver to install and remove.
Finally, for hauling large items, you're probably looking at forks and spears. Ag and Nursery forks come with tines that easily cut through packed material for quick transfer. They're designed for smooth transport of balled and burlapped trees and container stock. Pallet forks give you the practicality of a forklift with the stability of a compact track loader. They come with skid-resistant steps and rail style to make work easy and quick. You'll also have total visibility of the fork tips. For transporting items like hay bales, the Bale spears will give you optimal rigidity and capacity, translating to a long working life. It also gives you unrestricted visibility of the spear and tine tips. No matter what you need your compact track loader to do, there's probably an attachment to help you do it.
