50 years of providing the best

Global Mind, Local Spirit

RDO Equipment first invested in Australia in 2012 when it acquired a 50% interest in Vanderfield (an agricultural equipment dealer), followed by a 50% investment in Vermeer Australia in 2015.  Fast forward to 2019, RDO is named the official dealer partner for John Deere Construction and Forestry equipment in all states (excluding WA) and further solidifies it’s commitment to Australia by acquiring the remaining interest in Vanderfield and Vermeer Australia.

Today the RDO Australia Group is one of the world’s largest John Deere and Vermeer equipment dealers and encompasses Vermeer Australia, Vanderfield and RDO Equipment dealerships.  The Group proudly employs over 500 staff, and operates out of 18 dealerships providing parts and service support for the agricultural, roads, civil construction, landscaping, mining and forestry sectors.

50 Years Of Providing The Best

The year is 1968. 26-year-old potato farmer, Ron Offutt, is farming alongside his father in Moorhead, Minnesota, operating John Deere equipment rented from the local dealership nearby. Later that same year, Ron purchases that local dealership and grows it into a company with more than 75 stores in nine states, selling and supporting agriculture, construction, environmental, irrigation, positioning, and surveying equipment from leading manufacturers including John Deere, Vermeer, and Topcon.

50 years later, RDO Equipment Co. manages more than 100 locations worldwide with partnerships in Africa, Australia, Mexico, Russia, and Ukraine, making it the largest and most trusted John Deere partner to customers around the globe.
