State Tractor & Equipment Joins LiuGong Dealer Network


State Tractor & Equipment Co. Inc. is the latest dealership to join the LiuGong dealer lineup.

Throughout the process of joining the LiuGong dealer network, State Tractor & Equipment leaders were impressed by the service LiuGong provides, including the infrastructure, inventory, employees, and quality products to ensure its customers are satisfied.

Joshua Badder, State Tractor & Equipment sales director, noted the company has already sold its first machine.

"We are pretty excited to see how this LiuGong machine does out in the field," Badder said. "We look forward to strengthening our partnership and seeing what the future holds."

State Tractor & Equipment is family owned and operated by Cliff Dale and his two sons. It currently has two locations: one in Kansas City, Kan., and a second store, which recently opened in Springfield, Mo. Company leaders also hope to expand to Oklahoma in the future.

State Tractor & Equipment has a background in railroad service and heavy haul trucking and added sales to its offerings in 2015. Securing LiuGong products will be integral to expanding that side of the business.

"We are really good on the shop aspect of the business, and on the sales side too," Badder said.

Andrew Ryan, LiuGong North America president, welcomed State Tractor & Equipment to the dealer network and said the partnership will bolster its footprint in the region.

"We are thankful to add another great partner in State Tractor & Equipment to our LiuGong dealer network," Ryan said. "Their presence in the Midwest helps us continue our development and growth strategy in North America."

State Tractor & Equipment offers machinery for construction, vegetation management, demolition, scrap, and recycling applications.

The company has been in business for more than 40 years and covers 89 counties across Kansas and Missouri. State Tractor Equipment Co. leaders said LiuGong's reputation for having the best-selling wheel loaders in the world was key to the partnership.

"We knew their global footprint," Badder said. "We knew they had a really good product on the wheel loader side, and we wanted to be able to offer our customers a really solid machine with that good warranty and price that they offer."

LiuGong North America continues to grow its footprint in the North American market by providing high-performance and high-value machines.

Durante Equipment Joins LiuGong North America Dealer Lineup

Durante Equipment Joins LiuGong North America Dealer Lineup

KATY, Texas – October 11, 2022 – LiuGong North America has added another Florida-based dealer to its lineup, in the form of Hollywood, Fla.-based Durante Equipment.

Durante Equipment is a general rent equipment operations company (it includes both construction equipment and material handling products) and boasts a 30-year track record of experience led by Dealer Principal/President John Durante and GM/Sales Manager David D’Attilo. The Hollywood location allows Durante to serve material handling and earthmoving customers in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties.

Durante’s family and dealership background are based in New York. He added the Florida location roughly 2 ½ years ago.
The availability of material handling inventory is key to the partnership, D’Attilo said. D’Attilo noted a strong customer base within material handling and worked with the LiuGong North America team to become the dealer for sales as well as rentals.
Additionally, D’Attilo described the importance of culture within Durante Equipment with its three core tenets: driven to deliver, old-school values, and a passion to be the best.

“I like to say that we are constantly building a culture,” D’Attilo said. “We are very selective on who to keep and put into our team because we want to have people here for the long haul.”

Jared Ward, LiuGong North America director of material handling, welcomed the Durante Equipment family into the fold.
“Durante Equipment has a strong pedigree in rentals and material handling, and we are thrilled to welcome them to our LiuGong dealer lineup,” Ward said. “Ensuring they have the products and availability they need is a major part of our mission and program.”

Michel Marchand, LiuGong North America's vice president of sales, noted the importance of Durante to LiuGong’s construction equipment dealer network.

“Florida is booming with projects requiring heavy equipment,” Marchand said. “As we continue to add great partners to our dealer network, we are confident Durante Equipment will be up to the task of servicing earthmoving customers in the area.”
