When ready to purchase your skid steer mower one of the first things that come to mind is to shop for a used mower. This is often a necessity to get the attachment you want without breaking the bank. Even though price is always a consideration, be sure to consider the downside of purchasing used. In most cases a user mower will not come with a warranty and this means that repairs and replacement parts will be an additional expense.
There are literally thousands of used skid steer mowers out there to pick from. The type of work you will be doing will dictate the size and capacity of the mower you need to purchase. If you are going to use the mower commercially you will need a beefier attachment to handle the work load, for personal use, you might be able to get by with a lighter model. Either way, the intended use must be considered before you make a purchase.
When buying a used skid steer mower attachment get as much information about the mower as possible from the seller. Some important considerations when buying a used attachment are age, if it was used for commercial jobs, the number of hours in use, any previous repairs and how the attachment has been maintained.
Make sure your skid steer has the hydraulic power to work the attachment and that the engine has the horse power to back the hydraulics.
When buying a used skid steer mower or brush cutter, be sure to get the owner’s manual from the seller. If they do not have the owner/operator manual, you can most likely get one from the manufacturer or online.
