General Equipment Co.


In the Depression years of the 1930's,  Raymond Von Ruden decided to find a better and more productive solution to the tedious and back-breaking job of cutting trees down. With a combination of ingenuity and imagination, he devised a way of transferring power and motion from a farm tractor to a standard logging saw. The idea worked so well that its demand prompted the beginning of Von Ruden Manufacturing Company in a small building constructed from home-sawed lumber. As the demand for his product increased, that humble beginning on the family farm gave way to the erection of a factory in Claremont, Minnesota.
