History

Michaud Equipment was founded as a tractor dealership by Maurice Michaud in 1982. Not long after that, it became an exclusive dealer of the Lockwood brand in the Maritimes. In 1999, Michaud Equipment purchased Lockwood’s potato box manufacturing division (the equipment) and began manufacturing its own boxes during wintertime (and has since then manufactured over 500 boxes).

Michaud Equipment was acquired by a few members of Grand Falls’ Toner family in 2008, under the leadership of Joey Toner. Back then, the company was still very small, with only five employees to its payroll. In 2016, Joey, who had managed to grow the business three-fold since the acquisition, welcomed Bryan Savage launch as the company’s new general manager and director of business development.

Since 2016, Michaud Equipment has become a Maritimes-exclusive dealer of the renowned Harriston and Schulte brands, and has increased its workforce to over 20 employees. Today, the business is expanding its manufacturing facilities to further ramp up production given the strong-and-still-growing demand for its potato equipment.

In addition to designing and manufacturing our own industrial potato farming products, we also are a Maritimes-exclusive dealer of renowned brands such as Harriston launch (planters, row cutters, weeders, handling equipment), Lockwood launch (planters, windrowers, harvesters, handling equipment), and Schulte launch (rotary cutters mowers, rock pickers windrowers, snow blowers, soil tillage, forestry mulchers).

Used Equipment

Being a supplier of potato equipment, we meet a lot of clients that either need to sell or want to buy used pieces of equipment. We’ve always been committed to helping those clients the best we could, be it by hosting and showcasing their used machines in our front yard or by putting them in contact with potential buyers (or sellers).

But recently, we’ve taken things a step further by creating an initiative that will make things even easier for potato farmers to buy and sell used potato equipment and parts. The initiative consists in an online used equipment listing application which we are currently developing, and which should be operational before the end of 2020.

In the meantime, please visit our Facebook Shop launch to view our listing of used parts and potato equipment.
