Melbourne Tractors Somerton (formerly Campbellfield) is the first branch of the Melbourne Tractors family, and where the whole story began. Opening its doors in North Coburg in 1983, Melbourne Tractors were a major dealer of agriculture machinery and equipment to the northern regions of Victoria. It was in the early 90’s that the business expanded, moving to the Campbellfield premises, and the Bennett family joined the venture.
Along with the growth of the city of Melbourne and surrounds, came the growth of Melbourne Tractors Campbellfield. The branch successfully added more construction equipment to their product range and secured dealer rights for New Holland Construction and Terex Positrack Loaders (which in the early days were known as ASV). Following this change, the agriculture side of the business slowly moved across to the Ballarat branch. Within a few years, the Ballarat branch (purchased in 2000) was the sole supplier of agriculture equipment for the Melbourne Tractors Group.
In 2008, Melbourne Tractors Campbellfield secured the dealer rights for Kobelco Excavators in Victoria. Plans were put in place quickly to accommodate this large franchise including further establishing a branch in Dandenong and expanding the team in the Ballarat branch to accommodate both agriculture and a larger range of construction equipment including heavy excavators.
This expansion also included the Campbellfield factory, and taking over the adjoining premises. The branch doubled in size, as well as the product offering and used equipment stock. To further the business and to compliment the range of products, it wasn’t long before Melbourne Tractors Campbellfield secured the dealer rights for MSB Hammers and started manufacturing their own excavator buckets. This included mud buckets, GP buckets, rippers, grabs and shaker buckets. In 2015 Melbourne Tractors Campbellfield partnered with Roo Attachments to further their sizing of buckets and to suit not just their own dealer brands but all brands and sizes of machines.
Melbourne Tractors Campbellfield continue to grow and add further world class machines and attachments to their range. All the while supporting their customers with a state of the art workshop and parts department.
