ABOUT PETERSEN – Petersen Industries, Inc. manufactures equipment for the trash, agricultural, arboricultural, and aggregate markets. Petersen’s Lightning Loader® grapple trucks are used by over 900 cities and counties nationwide, and by most major waste companies. In the mid 1970’s Petersen designed a knuckle boom that could be used for loading bulky trash. The result was a trash loader concept that has been improved and refined over the last 30 years. With the exception of 3 or 4 purchased items, Petersen manufactures all other major components, including most hydraulic cylinders. With complete CNC machining capabilities and fabrication facilities, Petersen is able to control every aspect of schedule and quality control.
