West Bend, Wis.-based Manitou Americas recently donated a new Gehl skid-steer loader to University Wisconsin-Washington County.
“We are proud to be able to assist the University Wisconsin-Washington County with a new Gehl 5240E Power2 skid loader,” said Dan Miller, CEO Manitou Americas. “With a history in West Bend dating back to 1859, Gehl is honored to be affiliated with UWWC.”
The Gehl skid loader is used on the premises to do multiple landscape projects on the grounds of the University, including hauling and spreading mulch, digging out stumps, clearing snow from parking lots and sidewalks, and to unload heavy pallet loads.
“We at UW-Washington County very much appreciate the donation of the skid loader,” said Paul Price, University Wisconsin – Washington County Dean. “This compact, but powerful tool allows us to maintain the campus with a smaller staff and at lower cost. It is also a concrete demonstration of the significance Gehl places on education in West Bend and Washington County. We thank Dan Miller and Gehl for their continued support.”
Manitou Group designs, assembles and distributes Gehl branded compact equipment for the construction and agricultural markets worldwide.
