Skid steer loaders are very popular construction vehicles these days.  They are called skid steers because the left and right wheel pairs at different speeds and thus the machine turns by skidding.  They are small, but very powerful machines that move quickly and can do the job of much bigger types of construction equipment.

Below is a brief video highlighting the securement challenges of a recent load of Caterpillar skid steers that I transported from North Carolina to New York.
