Tips and Tricks: Ingress and Egress

19 April 2019

We're comparing the ingress and egress process on three loader product families. We take a look at the difference between a Compact Wheel Loader, Compact Track Loader, and a Skid Steer Loader.

Both the Skid Steer Loader and Compact Track Loader are front-exit machines, meaning that you must have the loader arm in the down position to exit. The Compact Wheel Loader is more convenient in the sense that you can have the loader arm in any position while exiting from the side of the machine.

When choosing between these three pieces of equipment, it really just comes down to the job you're doing and how often you need to get in and out of your machine. Which machine would you go with?
