About Us


Leo weldingOwner/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.

The Chicken PluckerIn 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 generation!
