I worked for Westendorf for years in sales, service and design after I got out of college. I have been using their products my entire life. I personally would not buy any other loader, running gear, and scraper from anyone else. They are in Onawa, Iowa, and small town of a 3000 or so. Family owned and run by the son & grandson of the founder. Midwest valves and can't imagine how you will have any issues with them (I know I never have). They are only about 50 minutes from me currently. They have all of my info and have for over 20 years. Call them and ask questions. I will tell you to get the 3 or 4 closest dealers to you. Some dealers are better than others and may represent Westendorf, but may not be very knowledge on they're stuff. Very Well Built Equipment!
