Farmers, tradesmen, landscapers, and warehousers all love them- and rightfully so. John Deere Compact Track Loaders (commonly referred to as track skid steers) are designed for much more than construction alone. While construction sites were their first home, they have become highly coveted in other industries. Their small size coupled with unmatched power makes them a great addition to most fleets and operations. At our dealership in Paris, Tennessee, we have several John Deere Compact Track Loaders (CTL) for sale. Learn more about our Compact Track Loaders and how having a compact track loader can improve your operation below.
At a glance, it is easy to confuse skid steers and compact track loaders because they are very similar machines. The main difference between these two machines is that skid steers operate on tires and compact track loaders operate on tracks. These machines are also designed to excel in different areas.
Before diving into why you would want a track machine over a tire machine, both are great options, some setups just work better in certain environments. Compact track loaders are great for job sites where you will work on loose or muddy dirt and don’t want to disturb the ground. CTLs also offer you a smoother operator experience because the tracks bridge over the top of dips in the grounds, whereas tires will bounce through them.
With 100+ attachment options for compact track loaders, the possibilities are endless. Below are some of the most common uses for CTLs but it is nowhere near being a comprehensive list of all the tasks they are capable of performing.
