VIDEO: Mini loader showdown

Considered the most compact machines of the compact equipment world, mini loaders are designed to assist professionals and DIYers alike with a wide range of tasks in settings where larger pieces of equipment just won’t fit. There are several models in this class on the market, but which is the right one for you?

Thanks to Charles B for staging a comparison to help viewers determine which features to prioritize based on the job at hand. The showdown only includes models from Ditch Witch, Toro and Vermeer, but mini loaders are available from a number of other suppliers as well, including Kubota, Kanga, Wacker Neuson, Bobat and Boxer, to name a few.
