We opened in 1959 as Claussen Equipment Co. selling equipment for farm, garden, and yard and that is what we do today. We have had on our staff four generations of Claussens and counting. We have customers who buy from us because they grew up coming into our store with their parents or grandparents. We pride ourselves on doing business with the same values as we always have.
We only carry products that we can promise quality form. We sell products we enjoy working with, that we would buy ourselves, and that we trust in our homes and gardens. The same equipment we recommend to you is what we recommend to our family and closest friends when they turn to us.
From day one we have done the things we do because we care about the people we have walk through the door. It is the little things like making sure your new (and new to you) equipment comes home with a full tank of gas or washing everything we work on before it goes home. We have the cheapest pop in town at 40c and in the winter we have free coffee.
As a long running family business in Rensselaer we dedicate ourselves to our community. See the bottom of our history page for more information.
Knowledge and Advice
We know our stuff and we want to help you get to know yours. When you bring us your broken part we want to make sure that it failed and nothing else failed and caused it to fail. We can get you a parts diagram so you know you have all the parts you need the first trip. We have technicians who take time out of their busy day to troubleshoot with any one of our customers.
The things above don't matter if we can't stand behind them. Call or stop in and see for yourself why people choose our family time and time again for 60 years. It doesn't matter if you just have a question, repair, or equipment need let us show you we sell the best and service the rest.
