They Specialize In Used Parts For Skid Steer Loaders
Owner Aaron Shirk has been buying and selling used skid steers for 10 years. "When we get one in that we can't repair, we part it out. We also have new and reconditioned parts and we've become specialists at rebuilding hydrostatic transmissions for all types of skid steer loaders and even other equipment ù everything from lawn mowers to bulldozers."
GD Equipment sells skid steer hydrostatic parts at prices up to 50 percent less than you'll find anywhere else. And if you need a rebuild, Shirk says his prices can save you up to 70 percent over what a local repair shop or dealership might charge.
"We have some unique rebuilding procedures for hydrostats that make them as good as new and in some cases, better than new. And we do it more economically than just about anyone else can," he says.
While they don't stock parts for every make and model of skid steer ever produced, Shirk says it would have to be an extremely rare part if they didn't have it. "We have most of the hard-to-find parts, either used, new or after market," he says.
While the parts business is what got them involved in hydrostatic transmissions, rebuilding hydrostats is now their most requested service. "We get hydrostats in from all over the East, as far south as the Carolinas. We even get them in from as far west as Kentucky and Wisconsin," he says.
