The New Holland LX 885 skid steer loader, like other loaders, scoops materials up for transport to another place. Skid steer loaders require two controls to move--one to operate the left tires or crawler tracks, the other to do the same on the right.


The New Holland LX 885 skid steer loader, manufactured from 1994 to 1999, features a three-cylinder, 192-cubic-inch diesel engine that produces 60 horsepower, according to Everything Attachments. New Holland manufactures the engine.
