Beef farmers Fred and Ann Kendall vow they'll always have a Gehl skid steer working at their Mineral Point, Wis., operation. Thanks to a fortuitous visit to the Gehl Company booth during Wisconsin Farm Technology Days, they've got those plans well covered.
Attracted by a chromed-out 150th anniversary commemorative Gehl Model 7810E on display, the Kendalls stopped by the Gehl booth and each filled out an entry for a chance to win free use of a 5240E. Back home, they already keep a Gehl Model 4835 busy. When Ann's entry was drawn, the family farm's fleet instantly expanded.
"We'll never be without a Gehl skid loader on the farm," she says. "Once we got one, we learned what an important tool it was."
