Instruments and Gauges

Prior to operating the skid loader make sure that you review the operator’s manual. It is recommended that you have a competent person demonstrate how to perform pre-operational inspection, bucket controls, and steering controls. If your company uses multiple attachments with their skid loader, make sure that the new operators know how to properly change out attachments.
