Skid steer loaders and skid steer attachments are versatile. Heavy duty skid steer versatility includes use as a bobcat, tiller, backhoe, excavator, trencher or auger, for use in construction, landscaping and agriculture. Skid steer loader attachments such as brush cutter, stump grinder and ripper make skid steer loaders the machine of choice for wide-ranging jobs, and Coates Hire the go-to branch for best value equipment and machinery. Buckets

A skid steer loader can be fitted with a general purpose bucket, grapple bucket, rock bucket or other bucket for construction, maintenance or demolition. Explore the range of high performance skid steer loader gear along with excavator attachments, skid steer brooms, mini excavators, backhoe attachments, cement mixers and more.


If you need a digger for fence posts, auger drive post drivers will get the job done in no time. Skid steer loaders and augers work well together for heavy duty post hole digging. The auger drive and skid steer work together for powerful auger digger action. With the right skid steer attachment a skid steer loader can become snow pusher, ripper, mower, mulcher, spreader, tree spade, sweeper or digger.


Whether you need Digga trenching, a skid steer bucket, mini excavator or compact track loader for laying cables and pipes, Coates Hire skid steer loader attachments will take care of it in no time. Skid steer loader trenchers are ideal for the job, and if yours is a larger trench, consider a mini excavator.

If you need to move pallets every day on the job site you're probably better off with a high performance forklift truck with heavy duty pallet forks. If you require a machine with strong lifting power, a skid steer loader will have the strength and versatility for most heavy duty tasks. 

Brush cutters
Whether you're clearing a path through overgrown fields or maintaining a lawn and hedgerows, high performance brush cutters, tree shears and skid steer attachments make life easier. Improve tine quality with rotary tillers and improve trenching for high flow areas. Provide superior lift capacity and wood chipper capability with Coates Hire equipment and machinery. 

If there's some bumpy ground that needs flattening out, or you're preparing soil for a lawn or seed bed, landscaping rakes can break up, grade and level soil all at once. They'll also remove and collect rocks, roots and other solid objects.

Someone's got to clean up at the start or end of the work day, and a skid steer loader with broom attachments makes sweeping paths and factory floors a relaxing task. Utility brooms can handle heavy-duty environments, picking up stones and debris and controlling dust. Other attachments

Those may be the most common skid steer attachments, but there are plenty more available to handle all sorts of specific tasks, from dozer blades, drum rollers and hammers to crane jibs. Your equipment hire company can recommend the best attachments for your needs.


If you're looking for a skid steer loader or mini bobcat for rent anywhere in Australia, talk to your local Coates Hire branch. We rent tyre and rubber-tracked skid steers with a huge choice of attachments to take care of any job. Find your nearest branch.
