What Skid Steer Attachments Require High Flow?

If you use a skid steer loader, you are well aware of how versatile it is. But did you know that your machine can be enhanced with various attachments? In this blog post, we’ll take a look at what skid steer attachments require high flow and why it’s important to choose the right one for your needs. 

What Is High Flow on a Skid Steer

The phrase “high flow” can describe a wide range of skid loaders with varying flow and pressure levels. Flow can range from 26 to 40 GPM (gallons per minute). The pressure range is 3,000 to 5,000 PSI (pounds per square inch).

High flow hydraulics for skid steers are an improvement because they help increase the productivity of small machinery. Although many attachments come in both standard-flow and high-flow varieties, using high-flow attachments can enhance the performance of your machinery.

How High Flow Attachments Improve Productivity

The high flow of hydraulics provides more power to attachments. This is especially important for attachments that see a lot of use, such as augers, breakers, and brush cutters. The increased hydraulic power can make these attachments work faster and more efficiently.

As a result of their compatibility with both standard-flow and high-flow attachments, high-flow skid steers are more versatile. They can help you get a lot of different jobs done. To get the most out of your machine, it’s best to figure out how to use high-flow accessories based on the job.

Which Attachments Require High Flow?

Skid steer attachments’ high flow requirements vary by the type of attachment. For example, high flow is required for hydraulic breakers, while low flow is sufficient for most other attachments, such as buckets and augers.

The high flow requirement is due to the fact that hydraulic breakers need more power to operate properly. To ensure that your skid steer has enough power to run high flow attachments, you will need to check the specs of your machine.

While high flow skid steers are more expensive than their standard counterparts, they provide a significant increase in productivity and can handle a wider range of attachments. As a result, they are an essential piece of equipment for many farmers, contractors, and landscapers.These are a few of the standout high flow attachment products:
