Bill and Betsy Bailes started Bill`s Tractor on a 50 acre farm which could not be seen from any highway or road! The year was 1984 and there were no employees, only a mobile home, log cabin and windmill. They started with one small 9N Ford tractor, 3 or 4 implements, a utility trailer and a 1/2 ton pickup. From this humble beginning the business grew slowly. With the help of several valued employees it has become one of the larger tractor and implement dealerships in the San Antonio area. This has been done by taking care of the customer and providing equipment at a fair price.
In 1997 the business moved 1/2 mile down the road into new facilities on a major highway on the eastern outskirts of San Antonio, Texas. Located on 4 acres with room enough to stock one of the largest assortments of tractors and farm equipment in South Texas.
As of Jan. 1, 2000 there were 11 trained employees providing quality service and warranty on all of the tractors and equipment sold.
The year 2001 was a red letter year when we became the largest seller of Mahindra Tractors in the USA. We sold over 460 Mahindra Tractors during the year.
The year 2002 was even better with sales of 700 for the year of new Mahindra Tractors.Must have the BEST Tractor around at the best price, Quality and the best service!
