Our History

Our Original Building

  • McConnellsburg Motor & Implement was Started in 1939 by the late W.H."Bill" & Phylene Mellott. in McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania across the street from the Fulton County Fairgrounds.
    Over the years the business has sold & serviced many different brands of equipment involved in agriculture and homeowner garden equipment to include NEW HOLLAND equipment, CASE Tractors, GMC Trucks, DAVID BROWN Tractors, FORD NEW HOLLAND Tractors & equipment, FARMTRAC Tractors, MONTANA Tractors, Kilbros wagons, Miller wagons, Pioneer Chain Saws, Husquvarna power equipment, Weedeater power equipment, Snapper mowers, Gilson mowers, Lawn Boy mowers, & Power King garden tractors.

  • In 1983 Lyle & Grace Mellott with partners Fred & Stella Wakefield purchased McConnellsburg Motor & Implement. 

  • Two years later Ford bought New Holland and forced a business expansion.
    In 1989 we had a catastrophic fire with a total loss of the original building and everything inside. We built a new building right next to the old one and started over.

  • In 1991, we gave up Ford New Holland and reorganized focusing on short line equipment and continued to service the tractors and equipment that we had sold for many years. 

  • Farming has changed in the United States and our business has changed along with it. Today, we have many more customers with small operations that own one or two compact diesel tractors & utilize small implements than what we have large farmers in need of large tractors & equipment.

  • Today McConnellsburg Motor & Implement sells LS Tractors & TYM Tractors as our main lines. We sell aftermarket attachments and lots of parts for equipemnts that we have sold in the past.  We also sell Bobcat Zero Turn mowers and Johnsered chainsaws. 

  • We have two full time mechanics.
    We stock parts for and service anything that we sell !!!

  • We also work an about anything agricultural related. We don't care what Brand or color it is. Engine work, Clutch work, Transmission work, Torque Amplifier work, Hydrauic work, Brake work, & PTO work. 

  • We have the largest selection of bearings, belts, & mower blades in the area.  We custom make hydraulic hoses and chainsaw chains.

  • We do our best to locate any whole goods or parts that one of our customers needs. We have been in business a long time and have made many connections over the years. If you need anything just ask we' will try to help you! 
    Our focus is customer service in a small family type atmosphere.
