Looking For A Tractor Part? Try These Guys!
When you need a tractor part, it’s nice to know that the salesman has hands-on experience with tractors and tractor repair. That’s the kind of help Madson’s Service Inc., in St. Nazianz, Wis., prides itself in offering. What started as a tractor repair shop operated by Ervin Madson in 1971, evolved into a service and parts shop that specializes in IH and Farmall but also carries parts for tractors of all colors from John Deere to Ford. In the 1980s Madson’s added new Cub Cadets and parts to its inventory.
    “We’re small enough so that everyone wears a lot of hats and knows all parts of the business,” says Scott Madson, who bought into the family business with his wife in 1995.
    With 10 to 15 outside parts vendors, and a large stock of inventory, Madson’s can get parts for models from 1939 to the present, though they have older model parts as well.
    “We really specialize in old restoration parts for collectors - from tune-up parts to sheet metal to clutches and hydraulic pumps,” Madson says. “We surprise a lot of people with the parts we are able to find. We recently did some mechanical repairs on a Case IH 7140 tractor that was the first production 7140 to be sold to the public. It’s always exciting to work on models or serial numbered tractors that are rare.”
    Cub Cadets are also popular and make up about half of the business, he adds.
    While many sales are local, employees who answer the phones are often mechanics who can knowledgeably answer questions and find the correct parts.
    “We sell parts all over the world,” Madson says.
