The radial-lift boom offers more reach at mid-range lift heights, good for digging, grading, and backfilling. It provides powerful digging performance at a competitive price.
The low center of gravity and superior balance provide exceptional agility and stability on slopes.
Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV diesel engine packs plenty of power and torque.
Large coolers provide increased heat rejection for superior performance in severe, high-load conditions. Engine-mounted, belt-driven cooling fan delivers efficient, reliable performance.
With weights from only 5,995 to 6,315 lb., these compacts are easy to trailer behind a pickup truck.
Without a bucket, the 312GR slims down to 1600 mm (62.9 in.) to fit through narrow openings.
Larger entryways with swing-out doors make it easier to get in, get comfortable, and get on with it. Inside, there’s more productivity-enhancing foot- and legroom.
Low-effort foot pedals are standard on skid steers; manual hand controls are available.
Generous tank capacity and fuel-efficient diesels enable day-long operation, letting you accomplish more between fill-ups.
Rear door enables easy, ground-level access to daily service checkpoints and cooling system components.
