We're not quite sure what part it was.
50 years and three generations is a long time to remember, but we'd like to think it was something as simple—and essential—as a hitch pin. It'd probably make sense, since we've pretty much built our whole business around the 'from the tractor seat back' part of the agricultural parts business.
Farmers have trusted us ever since with value-priced, work-hard-every-day parts, tools and accessories that don't give an inch in quality to their name brand, color-loyal counterparts.
And not only do we continue to expand our inventory of tractor-related parts and accessories, we're building out from there with everything from value-premium electronics and generators to ice chests and insulated containers that rival the fastest growing brands in the business—and all at better, smarter prices.
So yeah, we'll stick with the idea that the very first part we ever sold was a simple, essential hitch pin. After all, since we've hitched our very success to the success of our customers, it just makes perfect sense—for the both of us.
