A mid-level heavty duty skid steer

When you need a skid steer rental with more power than the 313 or 315, then Wescan Rentals recommends trying the 317D. The engine in the 317D has 45.5 kW (61 hp) engine over the 35-hp engine in smaller counterparts. 

Powerful: The 317D uses an Interim Tier 4 John Deere Power tech 4024T 45 hp 33.5 KW engine. It has approximately 10 horsepower over the two sizes down, the 313D and 315D skid steers. This makes it a good choice for bigger jobs.

Visibility: The 317D's 360-degree superior visibility gives you a clear view of the bucket and the tire edges. This is very helpful in close quarters and in places where space is limited. 

Superior bucket angle: As with the 315D, the 317D's 40-degree dump angle allows the bucket to empty all content (including sticky material). 

Comfort: The sculptured high back seat will help you keep productivity high. It has the ability to automatically retract as well. Levers are placed in such a way so as to decrease effort required to use them. Also, all John Deere skid steers come with cargo storange for cell phones and small items, as well as a 12-volt power outlet. It also featuers a cupholder. 

Reliability:  The 317D's heavy‐duty drive chains don't have to adjusted and are maintenance free. It's very easy to check the oil level and make changes on the fly, and maintenance is quick and easy with an efficient design and space to store tools and extra fuel.
