Company Timeline

  • Early 1970s

    Durie L. Cooper

    Our founder and president, Durie L. Cooper was a brick mason for a local contractor for many years. But in the early 1970’s, the new construction housing market plummeted due to the high interest rates.  With a new wife, he had to find work to support his wife and pay the bills.  This is when he began painting and refurbishing tractors for local tractor companies in Cairo and the surrounding area.

  • Mid to Late 1970s

    South Georgia Tractor, Inc.

    In 1973, he opened his first store in Cairo, GA, carrying the Deutz tractor line.  In May of 1974, South Georgia Tractor, Inc. was officially recognized as a legal corporation in the State of Georgia.  But after a few years with Deutz, the company sold out and left the U.S. market completely.  This is when we took on the White Farm Equipment line.

  • 1980s

    Farm Equipment to Massey Ferguson

    The Farm Equipment line did well for us until the early 80’s up until the company filed bankruptcy.  Once again, Mr. Durie was left trying to find a quality tractor line to offer his customers and community.  That’s when he was offered the Massey Ferguson line.  South Georgia Tractor, Inc. became an official Massey Ferguson dealer in March of 1983.

  • Early 1990s

    The Kubota Line

    After ten years of selling Massey Ferguson, Mr. Durie decided he wanted to offer more options to his customers, community and surrounding areas.  With this in mind, he brought in the Kubota line, and became a Kubota dealer on April 20, 1992.

  • Mid 1990s

    North Florida Expansion

    In 1994, after serving South Georgia for over 21 years, Mr. Durie was determined to expand into the North Florida market as well.  S.G.T. Rentals and Sales opened on Mahan Drive that year.  The new location would offer the same tractor lines, commitment and service that the Cairo location had built a reputation on. After five years on Mahan Drive, S.G.T. Rentals and Sales relocated to their current location, 4017 Woodville Hwy, Tallahassee, FL.  The new facility was better equipped and offered customers more comfort.

  • Mid 2000s

    Cairo Relocation

    The Cairo store also moved to a new location, 1920 Hwy 84 E Cairo, GA, in 2005.  We had been at our previous location for over 20 years and had out grown the facilities.  In 2005, we also decided to become a Kubota dealer exclusively.

  • Today

    Today

    Today our company proudly offers the full line of Kubota equipment, Land Pride implements, Husqvarna handhelds, Polaris products, and Wacker Neuson equipment.

    Mr. Durie continues his work on the company today with the help of his daughters, Candice Eubanks and Wendy Norton.  Scott Eubanks manages the Tallahassee location. Scott, who was an utility contractor for 18 years, brings a vast knowledge of construction equipment and implements to the company.

    After 40 years of being in business we still strive for the same goal. ‘Sell our customers a quality product at a fair price and continue to serve them after the sale.’  We are proudly family owned and operated and believe our most valuable advertisement is our customers.

    Mr. Durie, Candice, Wendy, Scott and the rest of the staff would also like to take this opportunity to say ‘Thank You’ for allowing us to serve you over the last 40 years in South Georgia and 20 years in North Florida.  We look forward to continuing to bring you the same down home, honest and friendly service for many years to come.
