Skid Steer

Skid steers are in constant motion. Their operators need reliable machines with efficient smooth operation. Trusted by market leading SSL OEMs, our motors allow for chain reduction flexibility and put less demand on the engine to increase machine productivity. We offer solutions for every machine – from small to mid-size to large.
Skid Steer

Poclain Hydraulics’ core offering for your skid steer loaders

Our proven designs are industry and end-user driven with local experts who understand the needs of your market and are able to propose design and system layouts for SSLs that respond to your specific needs.

Meet your skid steer customer’s performance needs

Owner-operators, contractors and fleet managers managing landscaping, snow plowing, agriculture and construction jobs have one thing that tops their list when it comes to their skid steer loaders: productivity. Our propel solutions help you deliver the performance your users need for optimum job-site productivity.

  • Boost job-site productivity and system efficiency – We help you realize the lowest pressure drop with an overall optimized system. This helps you deliver optimum power and working capacity for attachments. Our chain drive motors allow you to reduce cooling requirements and improve overall machine performance. They deliver higher power at lower engine speeds thanks to high-flow cover designs, faster cycle times thanks to two-speed motors with optimized speed to torque ratio.
  • Smooth drive contributes to productivity; fatigue and excess noise are distractions. Our soft shift options for a smoother ride deliver better driver comfort so operators can focus on the task at hand. Our PM tandem pumps’ reinforced structure directly contributes to noise reduction and their optimized electronic, mechanical and hydraulic control options ensures you will find the right control for your machine.
  • System safety – Reduce maintenance concerns and lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Our MS motors are available with a wet disc brake and our ML06 motors offers an integrated claw-style parking brake for added security. Our system components from pumps to motors withstand external pollution and debris infiltration. Our new speed sensor is IP69 rated to withstand high-pressure jets of water needed to clean the machine and still deliver accurate readings.
  • Precise movement. Cam lobe radial piston motor technology allows for precise movement. This allows operators to realize better turning performance, make every motion count and get work done faster.

Meet your machine design and development goals - get to market faster

  • A smaller machine footprint – Our highly compact motors deliver design flexibility. Poclain Hydraulics ML motors designed specifically for SSL chain drives or our modular MS motors with sprocket or spline shaft offer the smallest motors possible for your skid steer without compromising on performance. A wide range of displacements gives you more flexibility with chain reduction. The smaller envelope allows you to reduce your machine footprint.
  • Design freedom – our motor’s integrated brake delivers space savings, easier integration and added efficiency. Our PM tandem pump option eases internal routing of hydraulic architecture and lets you optimize your system layout according to your design goals with optional mounting flanges, integrated flushing valves, reinforced structures for noise reduction and many control types: mechanical, hydraulic or electronic with or without feedback .

Simplify logistics and aftersales support

The two speed symmetrical motors allow you to use the same motor for both sides of your skid steer – reducing safety stock and simplifying logistics.

  • Simplify aftermarket support and logistics with predictive maintenance, condition monitoring and minimal maintenance downtime thanks to easy-to-maintain parts such as an integrated flushing valve that reduces potential leak points. By minimizing potential failure points you can offer a defined maintenance schedule and reduce TCO.

  • Simplify spare parts management – ease for your aftersales support. Local manufacturing and two speed symmetrical designs reduces strain on logistics and increases supply chain stability.

Support for your machine, no matter where you are

  • Expert support for your SSL locally and globally – Regardless of where you are located, our experts are there to accompany you throughout the machine development process, providing data, settings help, prototype delivery, on top of an all-in-one easy-to-integrate solution for your skid steer. We help you reuse validated components when possible to simplify new machine development and accompany you from design and commissioning to the end of your machine’s lifecycle.
  • Quality performance in line with the highest skid steer loader OEM requirements. With our standard line of production, we deliver the same process and the same level of quality for all customers.
  • Training and continuous improvement – Poclain Hydraulics training and support doesn’t stop once your SSL is commissioned and goes into series production. Our standard or personalized training offerings help you ensure your team knows our products and is ready to deliver competent support to your customers.
