Owner/Operator Leo Schweiss started his welding business in the Spring of 1974 shortly after
graduating from the Welding/Fabrication Program at Hutchinson Technical College. Leo had
always dreamed of being his own boss and owning a shop which would service the needs of a
growing farming community. His expertise in performing repair work is known within a 60 mile
radius and beyond.
Leo designed the Schweiss Chicken Plucker in 1972 as a FFA (Future Farmers of America)
project. When he left for technical college he allowed his brother to manufacture the plucker
and he continued to do this for several years. With a new updated design Leo has jumped back
into the plucker business and continues to provide his poultry customers with a quality
product at a reasonable price. Customers are amazed at the fact that the Schweiss Chicken
Plucker even removes pin feathers from the poultry - leaving the bird clean in minutes.
In 1981 Leo was inspired to build a sandbox toy for his son and the Schweiss Mini-Backhoe
for Kids was developed. This heavy durable sandbox Mini-Backhoe provides hours of
entertainment along with developing large and small motor skills. Over 700 Mini-Backhoes
have been sold to satisfied park departments, resort owners and individual families.
Their sturdy construction outlives a childhood and can be passed down from generation to
