In late 2017, John Deere completed its acquisition of the Wirtgen Group. As the leading manufacturer of road construction equipment, the Wirtgen product lineup is a great complement to John Deere’s construction equipment offerings.
The acquisition was exciting news for John Deere and Wirtgen, as well as RDO Equipment Co. customers in Arizona, North Dakota, and South Dakota where RDO Equipment Co. is a Wirtgen dealer (the company expanded its Wirtgen territory to Arizona in January of this year). Learn more about Wirtgen’s family of brands and machines, and the new opportunities they bring.
Well-known in the roadbuilding industry, the Wirtgen brand offers high-quality road construction and rehabilitation machines with the latest technology.
Milling machines, hot and cold recyclers, and slipform pavers are key products in the Wirtgen lineup.
From the first paver with hydraulic drive to high-compaction technology for uniform screed quality, the Vogele brand is a leader in the asphalt paving industry.
Led by its Super Series asphalt pavers, the Vogele line also includes material feeders and screeds that work with this specialty equipment.
The first motor-driven road roller was designed and built in 1911 and, since then, the Hamm brand has offered products for soil and road compaction.
Single-drum compactors, tandem rollers, and static rollers provide solutions for asphalt and earthwork.
Stationary plants continue to be replaced by mobile equipment. The Kleemann brand offers mobile products for recycling and processing natural stone.
Jaw and impact crushers, and mobile crushing and screening plants are designed to ensure consistency in materials like raw minerals, concrete, and asphalt, as well as recycling construction waste.
With Wirtgen equipment having a greater presence in the market after John Deere’s acquisition, RDO Equipment Co. has worked to bring its service and support to the product line and customers. Dedicated Wirtgen service technicians are trained on and specialized in the machines, while the company’s parts support has expanded appropriately as well.
While well-known as a John Deere dealer, RDO Equipment Co. is proud to have Wirtgen and its family of brands as a major player in the lineup, and looks forward to providing customers a greater breadth of equipment for road-building and mining applications.
