The company LASKI, s.r.o. was founded in 1992 as a trade organisation dealing with spare parts for agricultural machines. It started with 3 workers in a small workshop and one office room.
In 1993 our company started with sales of engines as we gained a licence to official representation of the American firm KOHLER for sales of its combustion engines on the territory of the Czech and Slovak Republic and Poland. In this year our division of engines equipped an ultra-light plane with a special modification of the Kohler engine. This small plane, piloted by Ing. Tomáš Suchánek, won the 1st place at the European Championship in ultra-light flying. In the next year this pilot succeeded again: he won the 1st place at the World Championship.
In 1993 we started development of a self-propelled sweeper L150. Its prototype was introduced only one year later. In 1994 we developed and launched our first stump cutter F450/18. In 1996 we launched our first leaves exhauster VD400 and at the same time we commenced also its batch production. Other Laski products followed in the short term: spreaders, sweepers and vibrating plates (1997), bush-cutters (1999), trenchers (2000), chippers (2003) and shredders (2004).
In 1999 the company LASKI gained a licence to official representation of the Italian firm LOMBARDINI for sales of its diesel engines on the territory of the Czech Republic.
