Wet and Dry Hire Posi Track Rates

Posi Track Loaders are usually more expensive to hire than wheeled skid steer loaders because of the maintenance and upkeep expenses of tracks. That said, there are many very specific applications for these machines where a wheeled skid steer won't work, so the premium you pay on the hire rate amounts to nothing in terms of the productivity trade-off.

Do I need to hire a posi track or a wheeled skid steer?

You need a posi track if the ground is loose

A posi track is a type of skid steer, sometimes called a multi-terrain loader or Bobcat, that is purpose-built for operating on soft, sandy and slippery ground conditions. It is track-mounted and propelled - providing better traction and stability across such difficult terrain. An advantage of using a posi track is its increased traction on mud and wet ground, low ground pressure, and low soil compaction, along with track tread design which mitigates surface damage.

You can use a wheeled skid steer if the ground is compact

Wheeled Bobcats and Skid Steer Loaders are mounted on wheels and can only be operated on compact surfaces. They are high-performance machines that are often hired with various labour-saving tools and attachments such as augers, buckets, drills and more. They are about $30 an hour cheaper than posi-tracks, because they are easier to maintain and service. They do have slightly lower break-out force because the tracks on posi tracks offer more ballast.

Below is a table of sizes of available posi tracks which are categorised based on their operating weight which usually corresponds with higher horsepower and breakout force.
