Building your own Skid Steer
Part 1: Basic Chassis Guide for the MP100 Skid Steer

Up for sale is a set of CAD plans detailing the design and construction of your very own, fully capable, skid steer chassis.  This set of plans is part 1 of a series of plans to build this skid steer and includes the following:

-An estimated chassis price list and sources for required parts
-CAD files for required laser/plasma cut parts.  You can use your own plasma/laser cutter for these parts or we can cut them for you and ship them to your door.
-Access to all future updates to this design free.
-A set of descriptive renderings indicating the build steps and process

We are in the process of forming a community of skid steer builders, like yourself that can come together, build great machines, and have a great time in the process.  Our goal is not to sell you some files with some drawings in it, and leave you to it, instead, we look forward to working alongside, building, and even improving these machines with you.

As mentioned, this is only part 1 of the build process, but will provide a great jump start into your skid steer build.



First off, why would I pay for these plans, when I can just look at pictures and design my own skid steer?

-We have spent hundreds of hours researching, designing, and building prototypes to come up with the design of the MP100 skid steer.  Not to mention seeking out some great sources for the components of this machine.  You can certainly do this all again, but why when we can do this for you.


What tools do I need to build a skid steer?

-Definitely the basic things like screwdrivers, hammers, wrenches, drill, tape measures, etc.  You also need to have access to welding equipment(MIG is preferred) and a band saw.

Some other things are nice to have but not required, like a drill press or milling machine, a lathe, and a large surface plate!


How much will it cost me to build a skid steer?

-First, these plans are not geared toward building a lightweight, cheap skid steer.  The MP100 is designed to compete with the likes of John Deere, CAT and BobCat in terms of performance. See the machine specs below to see what we mean.  In terms of cost, a more accurate price list is found in the guide itself.  However, you should not plan on spending less than $3000 on parts even if you are great at scrounging.


How long will it take to build a skid steer?

-This will largely depend on your ability as a welder and fabricator.  The most intensive portion of this project is probably the fabrication of the powerpack mounting features, as no two will likely be same the same.  Ultimately, it would not be wise to take on a project like this if you need to be moving dirt in a few weeks, but if you are looking for a great winter project, this would be a good candidate.


What are specs of this skid steer, so that I can compare with some others that are available?

-The MP100 can be built to these approximate specifications:
  • Vehicle weight: 3,000-6,000lbs
  • Operating capacity: 500-2,000lbs
  • Travel Speed: 3-8mph
  • Horsepower: 15-60hp (depending on powerpack)
  • Fuel type: Gas, diesel, or electric

Exact specifications will be based on your requirements, and you can build exactly to those requirements.  Unfortunately, we can make no guarantees about the performance of your specific machine.
