Skid Steer Solutions Blog

Virnig Attachments is our kind of Skid Steer Attachment company and we're proud here at Skid Steer Solutions to offer an extensive selection of their products. Why do we love partnering with Virnig? Number one is they got their start in a two-car garage, an origin story that we can relate to. Secondly, they are an American based manufacturing company that does all of their business in house. That means they're doing their part to provide quality American jobs that produce quality American Skid Steer Attachments.

Virnig Skid Steer Loader Attachments

What do we mean when we say high quality Skid Steer Attachments? How can you spot an attachment for your skid steer loader and know it's a product you can trust? Here's why we trust Virnig, and why you should too:

Strong and Durable Steel Construction

Not all steel is created equal, and considering this material is what's going to make up the bulk of your plate and attachment construction, you want to know you're getting the highest grade for the highest durability. Grade 80 steel plates are used by Virnig is high stress areas, and they are committed to nothing less than grade 50 in other aspects of their Skid Steer Attachments. This means your attachments will perform, and they will last. You won't have to hesitate during your operation afraid of denting your attachment frame or taking your tool out of commission because of damage. Both Skid Steer Solutions and Virnig know that Skid Steer operators are looking to do real work and need attachments that can provide rugged performance without breaking down. Virnig's steel construction is the ultimate foundation for that type of performance.

USA Made Components

We've been around for over two decades, and have extensive experience with a wide range of skid steer attachments and skid steer accessories. When it comes to components, USA Made is the way to go and the best way to ensure a trustworthy attachment. If you do opt for hydraulic motors, hoses, coatings, pins, couplers, or any other Skid Steer component made outside of the USA, you're taking a gamble and may not end up satisfied with future maintenance costs. Virnig knows reliable equipment is invaluable, and we're happy to report they go the extra mile in providing these American made components. 

A Wide Range of Skid Steer Attachment options

Another Skid Steer Solutions value, Virnig also places a strong emphasis on versatility. We're all about Skid Steer Attachments that can offer innovative solutions, and we love Skid Steer Loaders thanks to their ability to complete a wide range of jobs, all with quick and simple swapping out of attachments and tools. Here is a sample of the wide range of Virnig Attachments available on our website:

Skid Steer Grapples (Rock Grapple, Brush Grapple, Skeleton Grapple, and more)

Skid Steer Buckets (4-in-1, Heavy Duty, Snow, Light Material, High Dump, and more)

Skid Seer Snow Blowers (Multiple models compatible with a wide range of flow rates to ensure peak performance on any machine)

Skid Steer Snow Pusher (Steel edge options available, pull-back options available)

Skid Steer Brush Cutters (Deck Mower, Rotary Mower)

This is just a sampling of Virnig's Skid Steer Attachment catalog, with many more useful and reliable attachments available. A skid steer operator looking to complete an attachment arsenal could choose to go with an all Virnig collection and never be left wanting for function out in the field. This wide selection coupled with the pride of manufacturing and reliable materials make Virnig a force to be reckoned with in the Skid Steer Attachment marketplace and a partner we're proud to work with at Skid Steer Solutions.
