New skid steer digs in with more power

With more than 7,000 pounds of breakout force and a lift capacity of 2,500 pounds, the new Model 255 skid-steer loader from Thomas can charge around your jobsites at speeds up to 12.3 mph, thanks to its turbocharged 87.4-horsepower Kubota diesel engine. A 48.75-inch wheelbase helps stabilize the machine in turns and improves productivity with faster cycle times. The hydraulic system pumps out 21 gallons per minute and a high-flow option can take that up to 40 gpm (70 hydraulic horsepower) for attachments with high-performance requirements.
