New Holland Celebrates 40 Years of Skid Steers

April 11, 2012

New Holland is celebrating 40 years of manufacturing skid steer loaders in 2012. The company's skid steer production began in 1972 with the introduction of the L35 – the industry’s first vertical lift skid steer loader equipped with the patented Super Boom lift linkage.

New Holland skid steer loaders are now sold in 120 countries around the world through New Holland dealers. Since the introduction of the L35, New Holland has produced more than 200,000 skid steer loaders for the landscaping, agricultural, and construction markets.

A special 40th anniversary logo has been created to commemorate the anniversary. The logo will be prominently displayed at industry events at which New Holland is participating this year, including Intermat 2012, April 16-21, in Paris, France.
