A Kubota skid steer is a powerful machine that can handle various tasks on a construction site. But to get the most out of your Kubota skid steer, whether you have a Kubota SSV65 or SSV75, you must outfit it with the right attachments.
After all, attachments are the entire reason you have a skid steer in the first place. Sure, you can have a tractor with various attachments, but a skid steer is maneuverable enough to make using attachments much more manageable.
So what attachments do you need for your Kubota skid steer? Here are a few of the best and our favorite attachments and what they’re used for.
The bucket attachment is one of the most versatile and commonly used attachments for a Kubota skid steer. You can use it for excavating, loading and unloading materials, and clearing debris. This is the most essential attachment for a skid steer and the reason most people purchase one in the first place. No matter what task you have in front of you, there’s a good chance that the bucket attachment can handle it.
There are many different bucket attachments available on the market, so be sure to select one specifically designed for use with a Kubota skid steer. You’ll want one made from durable materials and the right size for your particular skid steer.
Pallet fork attachment.
The pallet fork attachment is another necessary attachment for any Kubota skid steer owner. It can be used for tasks such as moving pallets of material and lifting heavy objects. Personally, I use mine to lift large round bales of hay since I don’t have a tractor with a front-end loader.
Sure, the bucket can lift heavy objects too, but the pallet fork is designed specifically for this purpose and will make your life much easier. The forks can be quickly adjusted to accommodate different size pallets and objects.
Pallet fork attachments come in various sizes and styles. So again, select one specifically designed for use with a Kubota skid steer.
An auger attachment is a must-have for anyone who needs to drill holes for fence posts, signs, or other purposes. This makes it an essential attachment for farmers, ranchers, and anyone else who needs to put up a lot of fencing. Depending on the size of the auger bit, you can use it to plant trees.
My personal favorite use for an auger attachment is drilling holes for fence posts. It’s much easier than a manual post-hole digger, and the results are much better. It takes a job that generally takes an hour or more and cuts it down to just a few minutes.
When you have a lot of holes to dig and need to dig them fast, an auger attachment is the way to go.
What are your most used attachments for your Kubota skid steer?
The bucket, pallet fork, and auger attachments are three essential attachments for a Kubota skid steer. But many other attachments available on the market can be used for various tasks.
Whether you’re looking for attachments to help excavate, lift, or drill, select one designed explicitly with a Kubota skid steer. With the right attachments, you’ll be able to get the most out of your Kubota skid steer. With that, you’ll be able to tackle any job on your construction site or your ranch.
