“We’ve used Kubota equipment for over 20 years. We use the U35 mini excavator and M59 backhoe every day—from loading materials in our yard to getting into the tightest areas on our job sites. We couldn’t run our business without them.”

“The John Deere 110 TLB is the best versatile machine out there. Within seconds you can put a rake, rototiller, Bush Hog and/or sweeper on it. The machine is compact for tight places and versatile. It’s a big, strong machine in a small package. It’s the best thing I did for my family business.”

“The Vermeer S650TX is in a league of its own when it comes to tracked mini skid- steers. We use it for everything: augering, trenching, light grading, hardscapes, mulch, etc. It is a game changer for us, especially on smaller/tighter properties.”
