The family sold the farm and opened up Valley Tool & Manufacturing on Santa Fe Avenue in Hughson. In the 1980’s Valley Tool began to diversify again by purchasing the Vrisimo ag mower brand from Gould International and later Windmill Spraymaster. Vrisimo has always had a loyal following all across the Western United States and continues to live on for generations. Valley Tool later created its next brand RockHound Attachments – an equipment company focused on contractor and forestry equipment. RockHound`s innovative EX Series of excavator brush mowers has been a gem in the competetive compact attachments industry. Valley Tool now sells its products in all states throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico; with alliances with other major equipment manufacturers such as Kubota Corporation and Bobcat Company. Valley Tool takes pride in developing innovative products that it`s customers will enjoy.
