Our History

 RotoShear is the brain-child of Merlin Badry, a farmer turned business owner and entrepreneur serving the agricultural community in Forestburg, Alberta, Canada.  RotoShear is the result of collaboration with local producers who were frustrated with existing reciprocal and chain-based products on the market.  With a love of design and a keen eye for problem solving, Merlin was eager to take on the challenge.  The first RotoShear prototype was field tested in 1999. 

For the past 14 years the RotoShear vertical crop cutter has been rapidly changing the experience of canola and lodged crop harvesting for producers across Canada, the USA and in overseas markets.
