Wichita, KS— New Holland's L175 black-and-silver 35th anniversary skid-steer loader, which was showcased at several industry events across North America, has been purchased by Nebraska-based New Holland dealer Klein's Motor Electric Co. in a tight 48-hour dealer bid. New Holland Construction has donated part of the sale's proceeds to United Way of the Plains in Wichita, home of New Holland's global manufacturing plant for skid steers and compact track loaders.
New Holland Construction introduced the L175 in honor of the 35th anniversary of its line of skid-steer loaders. The company's first model, the L35, was launched in 1972 and was the first skid steer to feature ROPS and a vertical parallel lift boom system. Since the introduction of the New Holland skid-steer loader, the company has produced over 200,000 units.
