Scissors Lift Mounts On A Skid Steer Loader
“Our new Skid-Lift skid loader-mounted lift operates off your skid loader’s hydraulics, without the need for self-contained hydraulics or a separate battery pack or engine. It takes advantage of your skid loader’s drive system, hydraulics, and steering which makes it affordably priced,” says Paul Wick, Skid-Lift, LLC, Fargo, N. Dak.
    The company offers several different models of the Skid-Lift. All attach to the quick-tach plate on any skid loader and are also equipped with forklift pockets for moving them around or loading them onto a trailer. With an optional 3-pt. mount adapter plate, they can also be mounted on the back of your tractor.
     Each unit comes with telescopic legs, an anti-slip deck surface, and base controls with safety let-down valve and emergency stop switch.
    At the recent Farm Fest show near Redwood Falls, Minn., the company displayed its model 2030E HD. It has a 25-ft. platform height and 26-ft. working height, and an 8-ft. long by 30-in. wide deck with end access door. It weighs 2,100 lbs. and sells for $16,995.
    The company also makes 2 lighter models priced at about $10,000 (model 1530S with a 15-ft. lift height) and $12,000 (model 2230S with a 22-ft. lift height). Model 2030E HD even comes with a 4-degree side tilt feature that lets you move the deck closer to your work.
    “The Skid-Lift works great for doing everything from roofing work to installing eves and gutters, putting on siding, tree trimming and many other jobs,” says Wick. “It has a low cost of ownership compared to other scissors lifts on the market. One farmer told us that every day he does something dangerous on the farm using a ladder, and that a skid loader-mounted scaffold would be a lot safer to use.”
