Wilf Degelman started Degelman Industries over 57 years ago with one thing in mind. He wanted to make products that had a true impact on the farm. Wilf was raised on farm values, not business values. He believed in honesty, being upfront, and was always interested in what farmers were doing and where they thought the industry was headed. He understood the costs associated with farming and set out to make practical equipment that would make seeding and harvesting easier.
In 1962 Wilf Degelman built a heavy duty rock picker, the product that started it all, out of his barn in Raymore, SK. Fast forward to today, and we still build all Degelman products with his philosophy in mind; “The fewer number of parts and complexity the better-and when you build something, build it right, build it heavy and build it to last-from top to bottom”.

We focus on support and make the experience of owning a Degelman unlike any other. We are a well established company, with deep roots in the agricultural industry. We take exceptional pride in what we do, and manufacture every piece of equipment with extreme focus and care.
We go above and beyond, like the marks you’ll find on our equipment to show the torque has been done right, and creating easy to follow quick start manuals, so you’re ready to roll on a Sunday morning. We make all of our products with the farmer’s needs in mind.
Over the last 5 decades, there have been great advances in technology, but the foundation of Degelman remains the same: build simple, heavy, reliable equipment, that will last for generations. We choose to innovate rather than imitate, and work hard to remain an industry leader. Wilf truly said it best: “Build it right, build it heavy and build it to last-from top to bottom”.
