About Us

The History of Robbins Farm Equipment

Denzil Robbins has been in the farm equipment industry since 1970, starting at a Case and Hesston dealer as a service technician.

In 1976 he went to work for the local John Deere dealer as a service technician, shortly after, he became their service manager, until the closing of the dealership in 1983. In September of 1983, Denzil opened his own repair shop under the name Robbins' Repair, repairing most any type of farm equipment for customers around Baker County. In December 1985, the local Hesston and Case dealer went out of business due to hard economic times.

After the closing of the dealership, Denzil took on the Hesston line, becoming a full service dealership, selling Fiatagri - Hesston tractors and Hesston hay equipment. In early 1986, Denzil purchased an old machine shop as the base for his new Hesston dealership.In 1991, Hesston Corporation was purchased by an up and coming company known as AGCO.

At this time, we took on the White and Massey Ferguson tractor lines, as well as retaining the Hesston Hay Equipment line. 

In 1997, our second store was opened under the name of Robbins Equipment II in Enterprise, Oregon.

This store is a full service Hesston dealership, and in early 2007 they acquired the Massey Ferguson line. We recently moved the Enterprise store to a LaGrande location in 2009.

    In 2001, our third store was opened, Robbins Equipment III in Burns, Oregon. Starting in a small parts store, and doing all the repairs in the field.During the 2001-02 winter, we rented a small one bay shop to our repairs in. During the spring of 2002, we packed up and moved to our recent location on Egan St., a location with a parts room and a five bay shop.

Over the last twenty four years, we have gone from a small repair shop to one of the top fifteen AGCO dealers in North America.

We have received many awards over the years, such as:
