In the 1950s Louis and Cyril Keller operated Keller Welding and Repair near Rothsay Minnesota. In 1956 Eddie Velo a turkey farmer in the area described to the Kellers a need for a machine small enough to maneuver inside a pole barn and light enough to operate on its upper level. The brothers developed a small three-wheeled design with a belt-driven transmission and delivered it to Velo on February 4 1957.3 Velo allowed the Kellers full access to his operations and after the Kellers learned of drawbacks with the belt-driven transmission they developed and patented a more robust clutch-based transmission system in 1958. The new transmission became the basis of the Melroe M60 loader.
