About Us

Your Local Team

Season after Season

Tri County Equipment is based right here, where you live and grows. We don't just know our equipment. We know you, your land, and your needs.

We work harder than any other tractor dealer in Michigan to meet your needs; that’s why we are growing and strengthening our business.

We work harder to remain one of the largest John Deere dealers in Michigan and provide the best parts for high quality equipment. We also carry a large inventory of parts for all makes and applications, from mower blades to sprayer fittings, tillage, harvesting, hardware, and more. We have what you need to keep your operation moving. There are Eleven locations throughout Eastern and Mid-Michigan. 

We work harder to help you get the most out of your equipment; that’s why we continue to invest in training and technology to ensure our service technicians can provide the very best support for your investment. We have the area’s largest service department with more than 35 factory-trained technicians.

We work harder to provide solutions; that’s why we have a dedicated product-support team committed to helping you solve problems and gain efficiency, as well as keeping you informed about the latest technology.

We work harder to serve our community; that’s why we support local causes, including 4H, FFA, Farm Bureau, Project RED, and many more local events and organizations. We give our time, use of our equipment, and money to ensure the communities in which we live, work, and go to school continue to thrive.


In 1985, The Wadsworth family of Sandusky, MI purchased its first John Deere Dealership in Sandusky, Michigan. News had come that the local dealership would be closing, which meant the convenience of having a John Deere equipment dealer close to home would be lost, as well as cause a strain on the neighboring farms and surrounding communities. In 1988, the Marlette location was added to better serve a growing customer base in the Lapeer, Tuscola, St. Clair, and the Northern Detroit Area. 2007 brought huge growth for our company when we purchased the locations in Caro, Burton, and Bad Axe. In 2008, Tri County Equipment welcomed the Lapeer location. In the fall of 2010, we purchased the John Deere dealerships in Reese, Birch Run, and Saginaw. This helped ensure the farmers in the Saginaw Valley area would be better served with a wider selection of parts and equipment. In January of 2019 we purchased Mid State Equipment in Fenton, MI.  Throughout the years, we have grown and currently have eleven locations serving Eastern and Mid-Michigan. Even though we continue to grow and change our business, you can still count on some things that will never change - our commitment, service, and support of our customers. That’s the Tri County Equipment advantage.

While our roots are in agriculture, we have also expanded our family of customers to include homeowners, large-property owners, landscapers, commercial-lawn care companies, golf courses, schools and municipalities. We are proud to be able to include all these different types of customers as part of our family.

In addition to being one of the United States’ top dealers for John Deere Parts sales, Tri County Equipment is Eastern Michigan’s John Deere Sprayer Service Center, as well as your best choice for Guidance System installation and repair technicians in Michigan. Tri County Equipment operates and maintains a vast RTK network covering the Thumb and Mid Michigan area.

We would like to take this time to welcome you to the Tri County Equipment family and ask that you allow us the opportunity to serve you as one of the most dedicated tractor dealers in Michigan. Your John Deere equipment will go a long way, and we are here to support your investment.

For the residential customer, we carry a full line of everything you need for your lawn and garden, in every season. We offer the trademark “Ready to Mow” program at several of our locations. Also, as your prominent John Deere dealer in Michigan, we carry John Deere toys, clothing, and collectibles.
