Specialised Farm Machinery was founded in Goondiwindi Qld in 1980 by David & Lea Eglington.

The Eglington’s moved to Goondiwindi from the small cane farming community of Tumbulgum on the beautiful banks of the Tweed River in northern NSW. David and Lea were 4th generation cane farmers. From a young age David worked his family property later moving into contract cane harvesting. It is fair to say David’s obsession with machinery started early.
David’s early foray into machinery sales came in the form of Lely rippers and chisel ploughs. Spending so much time on the road David realised he needed a base to work from and rented a yard in Goondiwindi.
Lea and their two children Jodie (8) and Mark (6) moved to town in May 1980.

In 1982 David and Lea purchased a block of land and built an office and workshop.

SFM took on the New Holland franchise and then the Case franchise. David successfully sold 19 New Holland TR85 combines in 1984.

Some of which are still running.

The early 90’s saw the Eglington’s have to diversify. Both franchises were taken from SFM in favour of larger businesses. David and Lea continued to run SFM as a workshop and used the land as a Landscaping supplies.
SFM staff at work 1995 saw an AGCO franchise up for grabs in the Goondiwindi area. Although not even on AGCO’s radar SFM was awarded the franchise. David and Lea proceeded to sell 9 Gleaner combines that year and numerous White, AGCO Allis and AGCO Star 4wd tractors. AGCO’s global acquisitions continued to grow with Massey Ferguson, Fendt and Challenger added to it’s line.

Since the days of spare parts stored in David and Lea’s lounge room, SFM has grown it’s business to include 13 staff,a wide reputation of support, a huge parts inventory , a state of the art workshop and 4 dedicated service vehicles. SFM has been the Biggest Single Outlet for Challenger Tractors in Australia over the last two years. SFM was the most successful SDLG wheel Loader dealer in Australia for 2012.

SFM has for the last 3 years had among the Highest AGCO Parts Turnover in Aust/NZ.
The SFM family is lead by David and Leas’ daughter Jodie as General Manager. Jodie is as passionate about SFM as her parents and leads from the front. SFM is in good hands for many years to come.
