RVM History

RVM, LLC | River Valley Machine

History of River Valley Machine


River Valley Machine initially started off as a consumer in 2010.With a purchase of a used skid-steer loader, Jon Cloyd, Jr. found several mechanical issues with it.  After contacting various dealers, he soon found that the price of repair parts was astronomical. 

Jon made minor repairs – and several improvements to its design – and then a local farmer saw it and wanted to buy it. RVM [River Valley Machine], LLC was formed.  Throughout the years, we realized many of the issues equipment users were experiencing were far too commonplace – cheap / light-grade metals, poor manufacturing / welding, high-pricing, etc…

RVM’s Solution was Simple…

Design & manufacture our own products with better higher grade metals & materials, improved manufacturing, along with outstanding customer service & speedy delivery.
