Skidsteer hire

Skidsteer hire

Thomson offer skidsteer hire across the UK. Our CAT 279D skidsteer, along with an NPORS/SSSTS/PTS qualified operator, is available for use on your project.
The machine is a 2015 high-flow model, and includes features such as rear camera, extra-wide low ground-pressure tracks and a debris kit for vegetation clearance.

Attachments available for hire with the skidsteer

The following attachments are available for you to hire alongside the skidsteer, allowing you to benefit from its varying functions:

  • Forestry mulcher
  • Brushcutter
  • Chain trencher
  • 4 in 1 bucket
  • Pallet forks
  • Quick Fencer

Many other attachments are available on request, including attachments for landscaping, forestry, and construction.

Our skidsteer is highly suited to sensitive areas such as SSSIs, SACs and SPAs due to its low ground-pressure – 4.4psi compared to the average human footprint at 8psi. It uses biodegradable hydraulic oil, making it suitable for works in and around watercourses. With a small turning circle and tracks, it is the ideal plant for working on sites where space is limited.

Please enquire today for further information on hiring the skidsteer.
