They Make Products To Solve Farm Problems
“We started making products for our own use and posting them on our Instagram page,” says current manager Curtis Hofer. “More guys started asking and inquiring about them. We hadn’t intended for it to grow this much when we started, but we’ve been blessed with great success in that regard.”
The metal fabricating facility specializes in innovative, custom attachments for tractors and other farm equipment. They’re designed for anyone working in the farming sector of the agriculture industry, from the small farmer to large equipment dealers.
Springfield Ag’s bestselling product is the Lend-A-Hand for Case Quad Trac, New Holland, and Versatile tractors. It’s a swinging arm mounted on the back of the tractor to keep hydraulic hoses and electrical lines out of the drawbar and PTO. Matched with the company’s Hose Saddle, it works to clean the lines running from the tractor to the implement. “It’s the only product of its kind on the market,” says Hofer. “Only one that I’ve seen anyways.”
A close second is the Pipe Drain, a tube with funnels used to drain the oil in the mid-rollers and idlers all at once. This tool makes it a lot easier and quicker to service tractors.
Springfield Ag currently employs eight full and part-time employees, and upwards of 98 percent of the company’s products are shipped out, either to dealers or directly to customers. “Some of the products we’re making have been around for several years now, but some are as new as 3 years ago,” says Hofer. “We keep innovating and trying to improve them every chance we get to better suit our, and more importantly, our customers, needs.”
Beyond the company’s standard products, Springfield Ag is open to requests. Says Hofer, “If any farmers have custom products that they would like to make happen and don’t know where to go to have them made, we’d be happy to help them out. Even though we mainly focus on our Ag Products line, we’re also a metal fabricating facility.”
Interested readers can email or visit the company website, where most products can be purchased online.
