In 2016, Loftness Specialized Equipment marks 60 years of manufacturing robust, easy-to-use, and efficient equipment. From the small Midwestern town of Hector, Minnesota, this family-run business continues to push the limits in the fields of agriculture, vegetation management, grain bagging, and more.
The company began when Dick Loftness built a V-Type snow blower for his own use, which soon resulted in the formation of Loftness Manufacturing in 1956. In the six decades since then, the company has expanded both its footprint and manufactured offerings.
Today, Loftness’ lineup includes VMLogix vegetation management equipment, SnowLogix snow blower attachments, GrainLogix grain-bagging equipment, CropLogix crop residue equipment, and the recently launched FertiLogix line of fertilizer application and handling equipment. Loftness also produces specialized attachments, including the Kwik Pik rock picker, Cool Flow auxiliary hydraulic cooler, and Power Pak hydraulic power unit.
The resolve for manufacturing excellence that began with Dick Loftness, and was spurred by Marv Nelson, who purchased the company in 1979, continues to present day. Top-grade steel, welded with high-quality wire and argon gas, along with top-of-the-line components and pride of workmanship from its skilled workforce goes into every Loftness product. Rigorous testing ensures a problem-free machine, while a commitment to reliability and service has built strong customer relationships.
