Oregon Equipment Sales purchases Linn Benton Tractor

After 33 years of putting their heart and soul into their elite Kubota/multi-line dealer equipment business, Don and Vivian Kropf are ready to retire.

The Kropfs have sponsored local and state sports teams, fairs, rodeos and have been an active supporter of local 4H/FFA auctions and events.

Vivian Kropf said, “It is with mixed emotions –sadness and joy and happiness – that we made this decision. It is time to enjoy the other side of life, our grandson, family, travel, and hobbies.”

The purchase of Linn Benton Tractor continues the vision by the privately held Oregon Equipment Sales, LLC, to create a larger dealership platform. OES also operates locations in Hubbard and McMinville.

Justin Miller, General Manager of OES, said, “The purchase of Linn Benton Tractor will continue to drive our commitment to be the ‘Local Dealer of Choice’ for all consumer, agricultural and construction equipment needs for Oregon.”

The Tangent location will continue to operate under the name Linn Benton Tractor.
