The Skid Steer's Origin

Virtually every type of construction equipment has an interesting story behind its beginnings and skid steers are certainly not an exception.

Louis and Cyril Keller had begun thinking using a type of skid steer in the mid-1950s.The brothers arrived a barnyard in western Minnesota in 1958 to speak with a farmer about a machine they had that could help him clean up manure more efficiently. The farmer was not impressed with what he saw was a 'big toy.' But the brothers were unfazed by the farmer's initial skepticism, so, they proceeded to demonstrate their 'toy' by cleaning the farm 'for free. The farmer changed his in mind in a hurry and immediately ordered two of these skid steers for himself.
