Rob Leib
Founder, Owner, President
An Original 3 Employee

Bio

We aren't sure if this man needs an introduction. He's widely known across the industry and if you've ever looked for an attachment, you've probably seen him giving you all of the information you need to know about a product in a video demonstration. Robert will tell you that his background is in electronics, which is true. He's worked as a project manager for some large telecom companies and at one point he worked on helicopters, but it's clear his heart lies in innovating products and equipment solutions in the compact equipment industry. He started with an old Bobcat 653B machine that he owned and as he slowly started realizing that affordable attachments and solutions to his needs didn't exist, he just as quickly started creating them. Here's one of the first. Eventually, SkidSteerSolutions.com was born and here we are today, a team of fun people providing the world with high quality attachments and products for compact equipment.

Q & A

  1. Who’d win in a fight, a Grizzly Bear or an African Lion?
    A Hunter
  2. If you woke up tomorrow to a zombie apocalypse, what machine and attachment would you take to save the world?
    4-in-one Bucket with a Track Loader… Kubota SVL-95 2S.

  8. Favorite part about working at SkidSteerSolutions.com?
    The comradery of our small company.
  9. Pick a colleague and tell us what they do best?
    Cody (our engineer), he has the ability to take my ideas and desires for a product and turn it into a reality.
  10. What is something you are working towards here?
    I want to keep doing my best to create a more involved, more enjoyable and more active working environment for my employees. But of course, I still want to create more new products. New product development is the most fun part of my job and why I really like what I've started, I get to create value through the "new".

Cody Corfe

Bio

Cody Corfe is an artist with a forming machine and welding torch. With every attachment we develop under the Eterra name, Cody Corfe is "Corfing" the design. It's known to his employees that he makes some of the toughest designs to manufacture because of how much attention to detail his designs require from every person in the shop.

Q & A

  1. What Attachment would you take with you to take down zombies?
    Easily the EX-50 on a 20 Ton CAT Track Excavator. It'll get messy.
  2. Where are you from originally?
    That's classified.
  3. Favorite part about attachment manufacturing?
    I get to conceive a new attachment or design and make something as ruthless, as cool looking and as powerful as I want. The rest is a lot of work, a lot toxic gas and hot metal.
  4. Quiz: When did our company start?
    2000? [Close, 1996 is the correct answer]
  5. What’s your favorite attachment?
    Probably the Cyclone Excavator Mowers. They are an absolute pain to make them look as good as they do, but when our guys get through a batch of them, we can be real proud.
  6. What’s an interesting thing that we don’t know about you?
    I'm self-taught in Autocad and solidworks (years of professional and hands on experience) and I'm really good at math without a 4-year degree.
  7. What's the next attachment you want to create?
    That also confidential, but I'll say that this one won't mow.
  8. Kubota SVL-95 or CAT 299D?
    CAT 299D
  9. Pick any brand of Skid Steer or Excavator, it’s going to arrive at your door free of charge tomorrow… What would you pick?
    I just told you, a CAT 299D [Okay, pick an excavator]. Okay, a Kubota KX-121 is all I need.
  10. What’s your favorite equipment or construction related magazine to read or subscribe to?
    I don't read them that much but I pick up a farmshow magazine everynow and then.
