About Us

After working six years for a local construction company, Paul Keppler of rural St. Olaf decided it was time to take a chance on his own business and began Keppler Custom Hire. With only one bulldozer and semi tractor Paul began his journey to help local farmers and businesses with their excavation needs.

He soon determined that the customer needs were greater than he could keep up with. He grew his fleet by purchasing an excavator to help with projects and added an employee.

Keppler Custom Hire LLC now has a fleet consisting of bulldozers, excavators, dump trucks, semi-trucks, tractors, tiling equipment, combines, planters and other equipment needed to complete any job.

Our success is determined by our customers which is why we thank you for your business and we look forward to working with you in the future.

Our first bulldozer purchased from Bob White of Elkader.
