Immersed in Heritage

A big part of what makes a Steiner® so legendary is its heritage. The first Steiner tractor wasn’t just rolled off the line. It was handcrafted in a small machine shop in the rich farming community of Wayne County, Ohio, and from the beginning it stood out from any other tractor.


That’s because it was built by a family who didn’t just know the uncompromising demands farmers faced, they lived through it firsthand. People took notice of the new tractor. And Steiner began to develop a reputation. A reputation for its ability to work harder, last longer and get more done.


Today’s Steiner tractors are built around the same uncompromising principle they were originally founded on. And that principle is simple:

We build the kind of machine you’d build for yourself.

1970 - 1979
The tradition of engineering excellence began in the early ’70s with the original 4-wheel drive articulating tractor being designed in 1974. Throughout the remaining ’70s, “The Steiner®” introduced new engines and brought concepts to the market like Quick-Hitch™ and the Traction Master™ S-16.
1980 – 1989
Throughout the 1980s, Steiner saw increased sales and production. It also introduced new tractor designs that featured many of the signature characteristics they're known for today, such as: hydraulic dump capability, 4-wheel drive and an articulating, out-front design. These new, innovative designs were met with increased demand, and nearly doubled the company's production capacity as a result. Due to this success, Steiner added a diesel model and a 2-wheel drive model—the S-20.
1990 - 1999
Innovations in the Steiner tractor line and additions to its accessories and attachments proved to generate even more fanfare and success. Zero-turn capability was added and other models were updated to reflect the changing market. To meet production demand, Steiner moved into a new, 100,000-square-foot facility in Dalton, Ohio. Facing new changes in the market, Steiner adapted and grew its business from a tractor company to a commercial and consumer manufacturer.
2000 - 2009

The decade marking the new millennium also marked some significant changes. Steiner ownership changed and the company moved to its new production facility in Johnson Creek, Wisconsin.

The commitment—to build turf management equipment that meets the ever-changing demands of its customers—was directly tied to driving the Steiner brand forward and teams of engineers, designers and manufacturers brought new ideas and applications to the product line.

2010 - Present

In the last decade, Steiner has continued to grow, making its mark as a key innovator in tractor technology and design. The Steiner brand currently offers three tractor models and more than 30 Quick-Hitch™ attachments including mowing decks, aerators, plow blades, snow blowers, rotary sweepers and more.

The new owners Doosan Bobcat will continue to drive the Steiner business through product quality, design innovation, and adding accessories and attachments to show the Passion. Power. Versatility. of the Steiner line—now and into the future.
