I am not one to boast how much I can lift, show-off my abilities or even feel comfortable in a video of myself. I am here to make our members lives better whether that is through a heavy deadlift, a striking cobra or a deep tissue/muscle release massage. All ages can reap the benefit of movement and my overall goal is to create happier people from within! “

L & P Supply has been a family owned business since 1965. In 1998 brothers, Brad and Brian bought the business from their father. The Lokensgards’ father, Orion, founded the business in 1965 as an implement dealership located along State Highway 7 East. He moved the business to its current location and refocused on smaller lawn and garden equipment. Today they sell John Deer, Simplicity, Ferris, Husqvarna, Echo and Aluma. L & P Supply also carries a full line of oils, lubricants, chains, filters and other parts for many lawn and garden equipment brands.

For years, Brian and Brad Lokensgard had been taking in free fill from construction around Hutchinson. They finally put the expanded plateau west of their lawn and garden equipment dealership to good use by building a 4,320-square-foot addition. L & P Supply has long been known for carrying a large selection of reconditioned, used equipment, and for servicing what it sells. The Lokensgards said the construction of a new showroom allowed their busy repair shop to expand into the former showroom area.
