Headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, FarmLink provides premier combine rental programs and proprietary data services. The company’s offering helps improve customers’ profitability and overall business performance. Our combine rental business, MachineryLink, provides on-time, field-ready machines to growers across North America from the largest fleet of late model equipment with state-of-the-art customer and maintenance support. By renting with MachineryLink, farmers receive significant value without locking up substantial capital – allowing them to invest in other areas of their operation. MachineryLink customers also receive exclusive access to FarmLink Analytics, a proprietary grower information platform that helps farmers make better grain marketing decisions.
A Foundation Based on Innovation
The original concept that developed into our combine rental business arose in the late 1990’s when a Kansas wheat farmer began partnering with area growers to share agricultural equipment in order to reduce costs, free up capital and more effectively manage risk.
This common-sense approach of sharing underutilized assets quickly grew in popularity, and MachineryLink emerged as a viable equipment utilization resource for growers, providing the necessary logistics, maintenance and technical support to maximize productivity.
Soon, the business model was refined and molded into the nation’s leading combine rental fleet with nearly 300 machines in operation today. A specialized transportation division was also created to deliver the equipment when and where needed across the most productive agricultural states.
Two permanent service centers are conveniently located in Pratt, Kansas and North Sioux City, South Dakota. Additional service support is provided by temporary service yards spread strategically along the harvest route. Our partnerships with a nationwide network of over 300 John Deere and Case IH dealers also provide parts and service to maximize customer uptime during harvest.
Today, we continue to grow while innovating, adding and expanding services focused on improving farm operations and revenues.
Year in and year out, TrueHarvest helps farmers understand how land just like theirs performed, showing each field’s true potential and helping farmers make better decisions about where to use their resources.
