Athens Tractor & Equipment, LLC was established. Burton Ouzts, President, opened with two technicians and a bookkeeper who worked out of a barn on his parents’ ranch in the New York Community. Soon a temporary trailer was set up on the construction site where Athens Tractor is located today at 3245 US Highway 175 E and a parts person was added. In June 2003 Athens Tractor moved into their new facility. Kubota and a couple of implement lines were added to the product line. With mentoring from his father and part-time help from both his father and mother, Athens Tractor has grown its product line and celebrated their 11th anniversary this year. Athens Tractor’s product line offers quality and choice to our customers. We are proud to represent leading manufacturers of agricultural, lawn and garden and outdoor hand-held power equipment.
We are local folks just like you and we are dedicated to making our family business a place that you can trust…not just for sales…but just as important, for quality service and parts.
