About Us


When You Go West, You Have Our Word.

At West Central Equipment, you have our word on your complete satisfaction. We’ve been rooted in this land since 1938, and we know what it takes to get the job done right, with the best equipment at affordable prices. 

Our History

Our relationship with John Deere dates back to 1938, when Fred J. Slezak started a dealership in New Alexandria, in the basement of a chicken coop. In 1976 after a period of being closed his son Frederick restarted the business, creating Lone Maple Sales & Service, Inc. – which is now our New Alexandria location. Frederick’s son and current President, David took over in 1980 and ran the single location until 2007 when he partnered with Joel Wineland and Rodney Metzler of Wineland Equipment, another long standing John Deere Dealer to form West Central Equipment.  Two years later in 2009 Scheffel Equipment in Somerset joined the team and four years after that in 2013 our Butler location was opened. Our 4 locations serve 19 counties in Pennsylvania, Northern Maryland and West Virginia.
