Baker & Sons Equipment Company was founded by John Baker in 1958, then primarily to cater to the area's agricultural interests. Baker & Sons Equipment Co. began carrying major brand equipment in 1961 beginning with Massey Ferguson and then New Holland and Bush Hog agricultural equipment. In the 1970's we took a major leap into the logging equipment industry with Franklin skidders, Hood knuckleboom loaders and Hydro-Ax brush cutters. As products were needed by the local industries and as Baker & Sons identified a market for them, they were added to our lines. In more recent years we have added many other respected equipment brands such as Kuhn, Kuhn Knight and Landpride, just to name a few of the agricultural lines. We have also been a successful forestry/landclearing dealer for the Duratech, Pitts, Rotobec, Sneller, CTR and CSI equipment lines.
For 50 years, Baker & Sons Equipment Co. has served the industries in the tri-state area of Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. This is a family owned business with many long-time employees. We stress having a large parts inventory and factory trained mechanics for in shop or on the road service.
