In 1948, our company was founded by Leo “Bud” Harsh, a WW II veteran who lost the use of both legs in an explosion while saving the lives of 3 men trapped on a sinking destroyer. Propelled by his electric “go-cart” and fueled by an indomitable spirit, Harsh began his hydraulics business with a pledge to build the most competitive world-class products.


Nestled at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in one of the largest agricultural counties in the U.S., Harsh International continues a 45-year tradition of commitment to quality. Today, as a result of our concern for the environment, Harsh is proud to introduce the “Enviro-Pro” line of equipment, which incorporates machine tool coolant recycling and large and small scale composting for industrial and municipal waste handling.
