Heider Adds Larger, Heavier Duty Wagon to its Farm Line Bigger, bigger, bigger seems to be the trend in farming. This means that farms are getting larger and consequently the equipment used in farming is getting larger, also. With the huge combines now used in harvesting it has become more and more of a problem to move the grain from the combine as fast as it is harvested. Heider Mfg. Co. of Carroll has tried to stay with the trend by manufacturing large equipment to move these products. Recently the company added another larger and heavier duty wagon to its line in order to help accomplish this purpose. The same trend seems to be true in the livestock feeding business as more farmers are getting set up to mass produce livestock. The Heider company continues to make auger boses to move feed to these large feeders. Along this trend the larger auger wagons seem to be more in demand than the smaller ones. Timei Herald, Carroll, la. Friday, March 26, 1976 This pioneer industry in Carroll is still working toward trouble-free equipment for the Midwest farmer. Breakdowns are costly and usually come at inopportune times; therefore, the comapny feels that it is much better to have a little more strength than needed instead of a little less built into the products. The demand still continues quite heavy for large barge type boxes in sizes up to 7x12 and 7x14. The popularity of this model is due to its versatility in being able to move almost all kinds of farm products. Speaking of quality products, a Heider official said, the Heider company continues to produce a top .quality line of ladders. Heider ladders meet the standards set up by the government and are therefore much in demand by industry where company as well as safety departments demand the best. The Heider company continues to operate chiefly in the State of Iowa and the states that surround it with "quality equipment" for trouble free performance being its motto. The Heider company, a major Carroll employer, has been in business here for nearly three-quarters of a century. It was established by the late Henry J. and John C. Heider. The firm's first products were made for horse-drawn equipment. Later, the company designed and sold the Heider tractor. Some of these machines are still in existence. Still later a complete line of ladders and children's coaster wagons were manufactured. In dharge of operations and sales at the plant are Paul E. Heider, president; John J. Heider, secretary-treasurer; Leo Fitzpatrick and E.A. Vaatveit, vice presidents. BUILDINGQRREMODELINGP • HOMES • GARAGES COMMERCIAL TELL US YOUR NEEDS WE'LL DO THE REST!
