In July of 1983 Jerry and Kathy Sedivy moved to Walthill and purchased the Hrdy Welding business from Les and Ruth Hrdy. They opened J and K Repair shop, specializing in auto repair, welding, and radiator repair.
Elmer Sedivy, Jerry's father, joined the business in 1992 after the closure of Walthill Farm Equipment. When Elmer joined the staff they changed the name to Walthill Service and Supply. Together they worked to build a leading Ford tractor repair and restoration business. Ins September 2002 Jerry's brother David Sedivy joined the staff. In 2005 Jerry and Kathy purchased the former Campbell Manufacturing building and remodeled it into a retail farm and home center. The new space allowed them to carry a large line of both farm and home supplies, as well as gave them more space for the repair and restoration business. In August of 2002 they became the first Farmtrac dealership in the state of Nebraska. They then changed the name again to Walthill Service LLC. In 2006 Jerry's son John joined the staff.
We are now offering more products than ever before, including products for the home, farm, and ranch. We already include many different lineups at our dealership, including Westerndorf, Koyker loaders, Land Pride, Befco, Unifarm, HW fencing and building products, and Blish-Mize home and hardware supplies. We carry tractor and industrial equipment from Tisco, A and I, Sparex, Steiner, Herschell, Dennis Carpenter, and many others. If lawn care is what you're looking for, we have Country Clipper and Hustler turf equipment, Tanaka products including chain saws and trimmers, efco, Poulan, Land Pride mowers, and Troy-Bilt, just to name a few. We are also an authorized Interstate Batteries dealer. We also have access to a large selection of all brands and sizes of tires that we mount and balance.
We have one of the Midwest's most complete inventories of new, rebuilt, and used parts for the 1939-1964 Ford tractors. We have many different vendors to go to, so we shop for fair prices and great quality. No one vendor can supply everything we need, so it's important to know what each can provide. Another good thing about having multiple vendors is that we can supply parts of different levels of quality.
For instance, we can offer a wire harness for a 1952 8N Ford that works very well for about $21.00, or for the restoration customer we stock one that's exactly like the original for about $75.00. The headlamps are another example. We stock universal units that will work, and we stock units that are restoration quality, exactly like the original.
When you buy parts from us, you get access to about 150 years of combined experience in Ford tractor repair. If you're needing help or advice on a project, we can assist you in many ways.
