Skid Steers are beneficial to workers due to their compact design. By having the lift arms along side of the operator cage, the skid can easily maneuver in tight spaces where other pieces of machinery cannot. Differential steering, where the wheels can operate independent of each other, allows the skid to turn in a circle while remaining in one spot. These are very handy machines to have on construction sites. However, to get into a skid, one must step over the attachment and into the cab, stepping through the controls in the process. This should only be done if the attachment is flat on the ground and the skid turned off with no keys in the ignition. The Interlock Control System, which prevents the machine from operating unless conditions are met, must never be tampered with. Skid Steer accidents and deaths are almost always due to this system being disabled.
