Mini Loaders
You can match productivity with versatility when using a mini loader and strong attachments for performing a wide range of tasks around the jobsite or acreage.
What are mini loaders used for?

A mini loader or will do almost anything a larger bobcat or skid steer loader can do, although a mini loader can’t be expected to perform like a full size digger or grader. There are, however, a huge number of jobs a mini loader/skidsteer can do, and they are used daily in some occupations. Mini loaders are strong, able to carry more than 250kg, and are great for moving rocks, concrete, demolition materials, soil and almost anything else.

Coates Hire offers both diesel powered and petrol powered mini loaders and mini diggers which are tough and compact for narrow spaces and smaller construction sites.
What do mini loader attachments do?
The attachments utilise mini loader Honda engine power for performing numerous functions. Your mini loader can perform like a small tractor, skid steer loader, backhoe, excavator or even a road sweeper. Attachments include the auger for perfect post hole drilling, 3 Tyne Ripper for turning large areas of soil, 4 in 1 bucket attachment for multiple construction site jobs and the wide broom and bucket combination with 2-way sweeping and automatic tipping.
Who hires mini loaders?
Mini loaders or skidsteers are useful of all types of building and construction teams. Even people who hire large loaders and lifting machinery sometimes need smaller equipment solutions for navigating tight spaces with limited access. A mini loader is often the perfect fit.

If machinery breaks down, business owners know they can turn to Coates Hire for a fast turnaround. Mini loaders are also a popular hire item with acreage owners who enjoy getting outside. With a mini loader and attachments, you can complete some important jobs and save a lot of money along the way.
