Mission Statement:
Our mission is to be recognized as the customer's first choice to provide excellent orchard, construction
yard care, grounds maintenance, and utility tractors and equipment, along with
best-in-class aftermarket parts and service support.

Valley Tractor first opened in 1946 as a division of Uecker Brothers Motors, a Ford car and truck dealership in Cashmere, Washington. Ford cars, trucks, and tractors were sold from the same building. This building is currently occupied by the Cashmere Valley Record and Cashmere Mini Storage.

In 1948, Valley Tractor emerged as a stand alone equipment dealership and was relocated to a site at the foot of Miller Street on Wenatchee Avenue. In 1971, Valley Tractor was purchased by William C. Nelson and shortly thereafter ownership and management was taken over by "WC's" son Brian Nelson, who to this day is still president of the company. During the 70's, 80's, and early 90's Valley Tractor's main facility was the Easy Street location in Wenatchee, with operations extending to Redmond, Issaquah, and Chelan.

Also during that time, beginning in May of 1979, Buell Hawkins joined the company after being Brian's Ford tractor rep, and eventually took over daily operations as the general manager as well as a share of ownership in the company. Brian and Buell remained business partners for over 30 years! In 2013 Buell sold his share in the company back to Brian Nelson and new general manager Dale Hall, who is Brian's son in law. Valley Tractor is proud to be a family owned business, serving several 3rd and 4th generation families in the area, and plans to do so for many generations to come!

In 1995 we built our current facility in the Baker Flats Industrial Park, and in 2001 we consolidated all operations into that location. From our base in East Wenatchee, our service extends across four counties with primary coverage: Chelan, Douglas, Grant, and Okanogan.

Valley Tractor represents the full line of Kubota Tractors & Construction equipment plus a wide array of orchard and vineyard specialty equipment manufactures like Rears sprayer and flails, Deutz-Fahr specialty orchard tractors, and more. We also carry a wide range of landscaping and power equipment. We service everything sell and a lot of things we don't! We work on large equipment down to small engine repair!

The core principles in our business are focused first and foremost on serving our customers needs, from equipment sales and rentals to parts and service support. We take pride in our dedicated employees, our business, and our community. North central Washington and Valley Tractor are great places to be!
