Medsker Sales & Service bought the Tri-L Dixon dealership in March 1998 and has steadily expanded its offering in both services offered and items sold. We chose the Dixon brand because they are excellent mowers, with most engines having four-year warranties. We offer a full line of Dixon ZTR mowers, new and used, with full service for them.
We are also a warranty dealer for Briggs & Stratton, Honda, Kohler and Kawasaki engines. In addition to mowers, we offer a full line of, and service for, Shindaiwa trimmers and lawn tools and Solo chainsaws with commercial two-year warranties. We also carry pressure washers and generators.
Since we began in 1998, we have won either gold or silver sales awards from DIXON every year. We pride ourselves on our mower service. We have several skilled mechanics and assistants. In most cases, repairs are done in 48 hours or less.
In 2009 we added full line of Hustler mowers which is the world's first zero-turn mower. According to Hustler Turf, John Regier of Moundridge, Kan., is credited with developing the first true zero-turn mower in 1964, with hydraulically controlled drive wheels designed to spin in either direction. He called his mower, quite appropriately, “The Hustler.” He sold his patent and design to a nearby tractor manufacturer, Excel Industries, which still manufactures Hustler mowers
In 2008 we added Husqvarna products. Husqvarna has a long history that is rich in tradition. The first Husqvarna plant was established in 1689 as a weapons foundry.
In 2013 we added Finish Line Trailers Red Oak Mfg., Inc., a southwest Iowa company and producer of Finish Line Trailers. It's a manufacturer of open, flatbed trailers ranging from a 4x6 Universal trailer to a 30’ Deck Over.
Red Oak Mfg., Inc. was formed in late 2009 with full production beginning the first of February, 2010 and is owned and operated by individuals with 50+ years of experience in fabrication, production, manufacturing, and customer service who have combined this know-how to create, what we feel is, a state-of-the-art company. We pride ourselves on our integrity and quality both in our sales and customer service as well as our production. Our 165,000+ square feet facility enables us to store all raw materials in a controlled environment, out of the weather, which is where our production quality begins.
In addition to our facility, a few other things which set us apart from our competitors are:
- 10-year frame warranty*
- #1 grade treated lumber
- Combination fender step and license plate bracket – an example of our many custom cut parts*
- EZ-Lube hubs on both idler or brake axles
