You Will Never Go Wrong With A Woods Backhoe

Let me ask you a quick question: Who built the very first tractor-mounted rotary cutter?

If you answered the Woods Equipment Company, you would be correct. In the year 1946, the Woods brothers (Leonard, Mervel and Keith) invented that now-famous piece of equipment. Today, the Woods Equipment Company makes a full line of landscape equipment, loaders, mowers, rotary cutters, flail shredders, snow blowers, utility vehicles — and backhoes.
