Thanks to the name, it’s not much of a secret what these machines are built for. Wheeler loaders are designed for loading dirt and rocks. Wheel loaders are also frequently called scoop loaders and bucket loaders. While there are multiple attachments for wheel loaders, most of the time you will see a bucket attached to the front for scooping and hauling materials. These machines can accomplish similar tasks as skid steers but they have the added benefit of more ground clearance. John Deere has three performance tiers for wheel loaders: compact, mid-size, and large. At Wade Inc, we sell compact wheel loaders. The compact machines are made very similarly to full-size wheel loaders, the main difference is the size and working capacity.
