Our Story

During the late 1970’s, Brad Schnittjer began looking for additional products to add to the line of attachments being produced at Bradco/American Trencher, Inc., a company Brad had formed in 1964. Recycling waste materials was beginning to become popular. It was this arena that work was begun on a proposed product line focused on recycling.

The initial product line as envisioned included a screening plant; however the Scat Windrow Turner was the first machine to be developed and introduced to the market place.
Screening Plant
As time passed, Corporate directions and ownership changed. Brad is now producing Orbital Action Screening Plants being sold into numerous diversified types of operations, mostly in North America with exciting exceptions, those being Demining activities by The Halo Trust, The Mines Advisory Group and the U.S. Army.

The original, 1964 startup company, Bradco, Inc is now called Paladin and is owned by the International Equipment Solutions, a New York Stock Exchange company. The company has expanded several times and merged with several companies.  The original
Bradco location in Delhi, Iowa has been expanded several times and remains one of the Company's major production locations.

“Bradco” remains one of its primary brand names.

The “SCAT” windrow turner is now owned by the Vermeer Corporation of Pella, Iowa and is being sold under the Vermeer label.

Early on, Brad started as a contractor moving dirt, installing sewer, water and telephone cable. Followed by twelve years of installing Natural Gas Distribution systems. This rich experience coupled with developing machines to do things mechanically and hydraulically provided the foundation and knowledge to introduce what we now consider, America's Finest “General Purpose” Screening Plant.

Happy screening
