Northland Trenching Equipment, Inc. was founded in 1984 by Larry R. Neid who
remains today as C.E.O. and president. Initially, the company was a dealer for
the Hoes trencher line in the states of Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin. Soon
after this humble start, the HOES company in Germany sold out to Dynapac, a
multi national company best known for its road building equipment. In 1988
Northland Trenching was appointed to be the exclusive North American
distributor for the Dynapac trencher line up. At that point Waseca, MN became
the United States headquarters.
Since then, the company has become a major supplier of European trenchers
and plows to the drainage industry in North America. Northland is also working
in the utility market to supply this equipment for installation of cable, water lines,
gas lines, fiber optics and other utility projects.
In 1997 Northland took another major step, adding a second line of trenchers
and plows to compliment the existing Dynapac line up. An agreement was
reached with Inter-Drain Sales bv. from Tiel, Holland, making Northland
Trenching Equipment, Inc. a dealer for their full line in the United States. This
addition gives the company a wide spectrum of types and sizes of plows and
chain trenchers to offer to all segments of the trenching industry. Northland
maintains a good selection of new and used equipment in inventory at all times.
This enables us to respond immediately to customer's needs.
In the Summer of 2008, Northland opened our store in Brazil, IN. This facility now
has equipment available as well.
To keep pace, our company has the largest inventory of wear and spare parts for
this type of equipment in the United States. These parts are ready for immediate
In addition to the trenching equipment offered, Northland is an Ag dealer for the
Trimble laser line up. This product nicely compliments; the trenching
equipment. Lasers and GPS are also stocked for immediate shipment and of
course, parts and service of those are available.

have made to our industry by providing excellent service and a large inventory
of equipment and parts. We are equally proud of the people who make up the
