Takeuchi-US has added Dykes Equipment, doing business as Appling Motors, Appling Motors, as its new dealer in south Georgia.

The company will carry Takeuchi excavators, skid steers, compact track loaders and wheel loaders, and market this equipment to its agriculture and small-to-medium contractor customer segments.

Based in Baxley, Georgia, Appling Motors has been in business for over 50 years, originally selling vehicles before transitioning to a tractor sales and service location. Owner Gary Dykes began working there in 1995 before purchasing the company in 2005, reforming it to Dykes Equipment dba Appling Motors.

“With the products and programs offered by Takeuchi, we expect to be able to expand our customer base in addition to offering dealer-owned rental fleet options in the region,” says Dykes.
