Leppo Rents-Equipment rental is an important part of the Leppo, Inc. story. During the 1970ʼs, customers began to see benefits for themselves in renting equipment. Many customers wanted to rent a piece of equipment prior to buying it, and some had either a particular short-term need or a big project where they needed additional equipment. Today Leppo Rents can supply the complete line of Bobcat equipment, but that is only part of what is offered. JLG telescoping rough-terrain forklifts that will carry up to 10,000# and reach up to 55ʼ and JLG Aerial Work platforms up to 135ʼ high are some of the largest machines. Dozers, scissors lifts, compaction equipment, air compressors, hand tools and specialized concrete equipment are also available to satisfy customersʼ needs. Landscaping tools such as augers, sod cutters, bed edgers, and tillers are another important category of equipment at Leppo Rents.

Bobcat Dealer-Bobcat operations focus on the sale and product support of Bobcat Loaders, Excavators, Track Loaders, Compact Tractors and attachments. The availability of both parts and knowledgeable service technicians is a key part of the companyʼs success. All service technicians are factory trained, and many of the parts personnel have decades of experience in providing parts quickly and efficiently. Ohio State/ATI in Wooster has been a key source of qualified and motivated staff members for over 20 years, and Leppo, Inc. is proud to be associated with the programs there.

Background-In 1945, Roy and Stella Leppo founded Leppo Equipment in Akron, Ohio as an Oliver farm equipment dealer. In 1946, their son Richard joined the company. During the decades that followed the area became more urbanized, and the company began to supply compact equipment to the contractor and homeowner markets. Today Leppo, Inc. has facilities throughout Northeast Ohio. They are located in Akron (Tallmadge), Canton, Cleveland (Bedford Heights), Cleveland-West (Elyria), Wooster and Youngstown.
