Company History


The team at Watson Tractors headed by Dealer Principal Millie Watson, Business Manager Dave Watson and staff members, have a combined 95 years of experience in the agricultural machinery industry.

Millie has had a lifetime of experience in all aspects of Small Business and Dave Watson is a trained Diesel Technician who was born into the family business and has excellent technical and product knowledge.

In July 1983 the Business took a new direction and secured the Dealership for the relatively new Tractor Company, Kubota Tractors Australia, who also imported the world renowned German made Krone Hay and Silage equipment. The family Business introduced other Australian made Implements as Challenge, Jarrett, Crump, Murray Harrows, John Shearer, Connor Shea, Daken Equipment and other Manufacturers of Farm Machinery which complimented the Tractor Range of Products available to Customers.

Kubota Tractors with their outstanding, reliable, Japanese Engineering and Krone Hay Equipment, have been the backbone of success of Watson Tractors. The Business started in the Service Area and management continue to ensure after sales service and spare parts backup is always a priority on all new equipment sold.

Heavily focused on Agriculture and the Lifestyle Market, we have seen the trend in recent years of many new customers moving from the Capital City to relocate to small acreage in local regions of the Central West. It is our policy to make sure they given the best possible advice on products to suit their application.

With over three and a half decades as a Kubota/Krone Dealer, our experience, Company stability and advice, is an important Sales Tool to new clientele that need direction with their purchase of farm machinery or turf equipment.

We are proud to be able to supply many Implements and Attachments that are Family Owned and Manufactured in Australia such as Jarrett, Crump, Murray Harrows, John Shearer, Connor Shea, DakenAg and Rapid Spray.
