Twenty Nine Years and Counting… Coyote Reaches Big Milestone in Small Equipment Biz    When Terex IBH closed its doors, Steve Kabay, president and founder of Coyote Loaders Inc., recognized “a need to support the base of existing Terex machines in the field.”
Deciding to form his own company, Kabay incorporated Coyote Loaders on August 14, 1984. He is preparing to celebrate these past 29 years and what he calls the long-lasting and solid relationships with both the suppliers and customers the company was built on.

Eight years ago, Kabay saw huge potential in small equipment, and the company began to concentrate on compact machines.

Kabay explained that many contractors are realizing that rather than paying for a large piece of equipment that stands idle much of the time, they can buy a compact for far less and run it continuously. Kabay also noted the advantages of compact equipment in its ease of transportation and because of the rising cost of fuel.

He spoke of one customer, Frank Fiorella of New Jersey, who purchased a mini in 1986. The machine is still in service and Fiorelo said that through all the ups and downs in the business “the Coyote has always put food on the table for me and my family.”

Today, Coyote represents machines from manufacturers around the world.

While Coyote’s niche is the owner/operator market ­­ where Kabay says the company has the ability to be very attentive to its customers ­­ the Ohio Department of Transportation has 10 of its machines in operation. Coyote also delivered two new machines to the New York Department of Transportation (NYDOT).  The total numbers sold to NYDOT is 26 loaders.

According to Kabay, the key word is small. It is a small company dedicated to staying that way.

With a crew, it sells and services equipment throughout the United States. Most stocked replacement parts can be shipped within 24 hours. Larger emergency replacement parts can be shipped from overseas within three days.

Always based in Ohio, Coyote Loaders moved into its current location ­­ on Route 8 between Akron and Cleveland, a stone’s throw from the Ohio Turnpike ­­ in 1996.

Although the competition is fierce, Kabay said he can’t think of anything he’d rather do. He said the business is extremely interesting and greatly rewarding. The company’s team approach is what makes the company work, he added.

What’s in a Name?
Coyote Loaders’ name came to Kabay when he heard the call of the coyote on one of his family’s many vacations out west. He was fascinated, and after learning more about the animal’s keen survival skills, he knew he had the perfect name for his business.

montageAt Coyote, we are dedicated to bringing you the highest quality products along with the skills and capabilities acquired in more than one hundred years of combined construction experience; making us an exceptionally versatile and knowledgeable supplier of wheel loaders and other equipment for any and all applications.

Coyote Loader Sales, Inc. was founded in 1984 to market and represent construction equipment manufactured and provide customers with repair parts for the equipment.  Today, Coyote continues to distribute the finest equipment for construction and industrial markets.

Over the years, the company has worked with many dealers and supports Atlas, Hanomag, Ahlmann, Fiori, Gehlmax, Terex, and Zettelmeyer units. Although support comes from the dealers, Coyote also provides direct support with parts and service and sales to dealers and end users.
