Skid Lift Handy For Many Farm Jobs
“It mounts on a skid steer or tractor loader to get many overhead jobs done quickly and safely,” Wick says. “The Skid-Lift will go anywhere your skid steer or tractor will go. It can be used for building and bin maintenance, trimming trees, working on or cleaning equipment like grain augers, tractors, and combines, and many other jobs around the farm.”
Wick says the company has had several customers purchase lifts after severe injuries on ladders or other high-lift contraptions.
Skid-Lift recently designed two new lifts specifically geared for the farm market with a lower price point. These models include the 1530s with a 21-ft. lift height and the 2230s with a 28-ft. lift height. Pricing starts at $9,900 for the 1530s. The lifts allow one-man operation using auxiliary hydraulics. The user can move up and down working the controls in the basket.
Wick notes that Skid-Lifts don’t have electronics, a battery pack, a separate hydraulic pump, or steerable axles that can fail like with self-propelled units. “It just has a hydraulic cylinder and a couple control valves. It’s built strong to keep the operator safe.”
