Buying Guide

Are you looking for the best skid loader attachment but unsure which to pick? Our simple buying guide will help you determine what is the best weight, width, and type of attachment to help you get the job done right.

Which skid loaders are compatible?

Almost any skid loader with a universal quick attach plate from a major brand will suffice.

Which width is best?

Several attachments have multiple width choices and it is best to pick the one with a width equal to or wider than the width of your skid loader.

Lift capacity restrictions?

We recommend picking an attachment with a weight that is no more than half the lifting capacity of your skid loader. For example, the 8ft snow bucket at 864 lbs, is the best option for a Bobcat V2203-M-D, which has an operating capacity of 1750 lb. A good website for determining a skid loader capacity is Ritchie Specs.

Why is Prime Attachments priced more competitively?

We don’t spend a ton of money on advertising campaigns and we keep a low overhead by utilizing lean manufacturing to help pass on the savings to the customer.

What is the quality of the attachments?

Our skid loader attachments are commercial grade and we are happy to stand behind our product to make sure they perform as expected.

Do the grapples move independently?

The grapples move together but one will continue after the other is clamped for oddly shaped objects.

Which grapple is best for my job?

The rock grapple is a very good attachment for most jobs. The tine grapple is similar but with wider teeth spacing and no crossbar support to allow for “stabbing” into material. The rock bucket has the capability for grabbing objects but also a bucket for holding silage.

Do I have to pay sales tax?

You only have to pay sales tax if you are from Minnesota and do not qualify to use a ST3. Minnesota residents that qualify are recommended to contact us directly about completing an ST3 to save money.
