Mini Skid Steer Attachment from Blue Diamond

By Kyle Davis

Blue Diamond Attachments for Mini Skid Steer Loaders

As Mini Skid Steer Loaders become more popular, they are quickly gaining in strength as well as functionality. Manufacturers who may have traditionally been focused on larger machines are starting to truly appreciate the versatility and accessibility of our mini machines. With increased attention comes increased options, and nothing embodies this more than the incredible collection of Mini Skid Steer Attachments from Blue Diamond. We're extremely excited to be partnering with Blue Diamond, and their dedication to Mini Attachments is a large reason. We always seek to offer a wide and heavy-duty selection of attachments our customers can trust, and our Mini Skid Steer catalog is now that much stronger thanks to Blue Diamond. Just about every Blue Diamond Mini Attachment comes with Mini Universal or Bobcat MT mounting available, so they will operate effectively on a wide range of mini loaders. Read on to see some highlights of the selection, and to learn how these tough tools can take your mini loader operations to the next level.

Blue Diamond Mini Skid Steer Brush Cutter Attachment

Here is something you don't see often. A full-fledged brush cutter and deck mower for a mini skid steer. This Mini Brush Cutter from Blue Diamond boasts a whole host of features, taking the lead from Blue Diamond's popular full-size version. It even comes in two sizes! This kind of customization and options offerings is what we always want to see for mini owners - more specialized selection so your specific tasks can get completed the way you see fit. Choose from a 36" model or a 42" model, with both options loaded with a Direct Drive System and Bi-directional cutting with 3 heavy-duty blades.

What's so exciting about this Mini Brush Cutter, and all mini attachments, for that matter, is the ability to access brush and clear material where larger machines can't access, or can't offer the precise operation necessary. Size and power will always have its place in our industry, and goodness knows we love a severe duty attachment, but monster power is no good if you can't reach the brush you're trying to clear. For those jobs, this Mini Bruch Cutter is a breath of fresh air.

Blue Diamond Mini Skid Steer Concrete Breaker Attachment

Blue Diamond Mini Skid Steer Concrete Breaker

Another extremely powerful and effective attachment, now available for a mini machine. The Blue Diamond Mini Skid Steer Concrete Breaker comes available in two models, featuring two slightly different impact and impulse forces. You can select the HB 95 at 200 Ft/Lbs or the HB 165 at 250 Ft/Lbs. Blue Diamond spend 5 years developing this tool, constantly researching and testing, something we can appreciate. We've seen a lot of cool ideas rushed to market over the years, and it's always refreshing to hear from a company that did their due diligence to ensure a reliable product. 

This is especially critical for a concrete breaker attachment, a tool you'll be relying on to complete tough work. Blue Diamond has designed this breaker to be extremely simple and effective, with fewer moving parts and only two internal moving parts. The Mini Breaker has a durable housing, an anti-blank firing system, as well as self-regulating valves. Everything you would expect for a tool designed to break up and demolish concrete. Working around houses, buildings and obstacles can no doubt be drastically improved with a nimble tool like this. A tough demo job in a tight space that would traditionally have to be done by hand can not be handled by your Mini Skid Steer Loader, awesome!

Blue Diamond Mini Skid Steer 4-in-1 Bucket Attachment

Blue Diamond Mini Skid Steer 4-in-1 Bucket

It's true that there are other Mini 4-in-1 Buckets on the market, but what stands out to us about the Blue Diamond Mini 4-in-1 Bucket is the quality of the construction. This attachment just gleams in the sunlight and really showcases what a great looking attachment Blue Diamond is able to produce. From the cylinders, to the pins, to the bushings, to the reinforced steel construction, everything about this mini bucket just screams quality and pride in manufacturing. It's our experience that this attention-to-detail always translates to a happy customer and a proud operator. The Mini 4-in-1 Bucket is available in 36", 42" and 48" sizes, and brings a full slate of functionality to your mini loader. It can function as a standard bucket, of course, but can also be used as a box blade to back drag, a grapple to move logs and debris, or even as a dozer, with a blade capable of pushing dirt. Another versatile tool for our versatile machines, when those two things combine you are usually only limited by your imagination, and we know skid steer and mini skid steer operators rarely are lacking in that arena.

Here are a few more quick hitters on some Blue Diamond Mini Attachments we're excited to offer.

Blue Diamond Mini Skid Steer Backhoe Attachment

When don't you need a backhoe? Mount this on your mini loader and enjoy one of the staples of our industry. Available in 42" and 48" models, with a full slate of buckets at 8". 10" and 12" sizes. A key feature on this Mini Backhoe is Blue Diamond's pivot linkage, which increases bucket rotation and breakout force, two awesome features to add to your arsenal when digging, trenching and moving material.

Blue Diamond Mini Skid Steer Trencher Attachment

Trenchers are always awesome, and can be especially effective on a mini skid steer. Ideal for plumbers, electricians, builders, or anyone who's looking to lay down pipe or wire. This Mini Attachment will get into tight places and churn up some earth with power you just can't manage by hand or with other tool. Great for construction zones and building areas where access and space can be tight. A whole host of chain options ensures you'll get the model you need for the soil you most often encounter.

Blue Diamond Mini Skid Steer Stump Bucket Attachment

Another gleaming attachment that screams out toughness. This Stump Bucket can no doubt handle whatever you can throw at it, and will combine with your mini machine for a powerful tree toppling, stump ripping, root detroying operation.
