For many years, folks asked me: “Don’t you have a company logo?” And we really didn’t, as I just never took the time to come up with one…we just had “Earth Tools” written out in a blocky font, and that passed for a logo.
Finally, though, I decided to put some effort into it, and I hired my sister-in-law Trina Peiffer (my wife’s twin sister) to make a line drawing of the Earth Tools sign we have here at the shop. This sign is made out of a 4-foot length of Eastern Red Cedar log; the letters are carved with a chain saw.
I made this sign about 15 years ago (below is a photo). I figured this was a logo with some “meaning”…not just some arbitrary design. Hope you like it!

We are in our busiest time of year now ... the combination of warm weather AND the tendency for folks to wait until the last minute to order usually means incredibly high order volumes ALL AT ONCE ... and as a result, lead time on tractor shipments is currently in the two to three week range from order payment to ship date (parts/garden tool orders are still shipping out same or next day). We appreciate your business, and we’re working as hard as we can to get orders out as fast as possible, WITHOUT cutting corners on the proper equipment setup, prep & checkout that we are famous for.

We are now offering a “regional” delivery service for tractor & implement orders within a 450-road-mile radius of our location in Owenton KY. Earth Tools’ owner’s Father-in-law Charlie will be doing the deliveries. Charges for this service will be the same as for shipping by truck freight (call for a quote to your specific location), but all equipment will be 100% assembled, un-crated & ready to use, and delivery will be with a pickup truck and enclosed trailer that can access most any location (unlike a semi-truck). Also, scheduling of the delivery will be more flexible, to better meet your needs. Another perk is that Charlie will show you basic operation of the tractor. Minimum merchandise order for this service: $5000. Call for a delivery quote!

If you’d like to visit our shop, we have plenty of land to demonstrate our walk-behind tractors with any implement. But if you’re coming to visit, CALL AHEAD at least one day in advance! Retail business hours are by appointment (yes, weekends, too), so the more notice you give us the better we can set our schedule to fit your schedule. We are occasionally out of the shop doing deliveries, demonstrations or displaying equipment at trade shows.
