Meet The Team

With a passion that developed in our early years on our grandpa’s farm, we’ve formed our business around helping farmers upgrade and make better use of their existing equipment.

Our grandpa used to say, “I can’t afford a new machine, so let’s keep what we have running in the best condition possible.” At Red E, we find our inspiration by listening to farmers and their pain points, then providing solutions that dealers and manufacturers have not done well.

This is where Red E comes in.

At Red E, we know time is your most valuable asset. Rebuilding or buying new equipment each year cuts into your time, and your profits. We offer long-term, durable solutions that get you more acres and years out of the equipment you have.

Our team has worked alongside hundreds of satisfied farmers, rebuilding hundreds of drills all over the globe. We offer a full service, parts, and installation solution.
