What We Offer

Thompson Machinery serves the broad range of needs for customers in a geographically diverse territory, which encompasses construction, forestry, mining, industrial, governmental and agricultural operations. Additionally, our Thompson Power division serves trucking, marine, and power generation businesses throughout the area and beyond.

New Equipment

We carry an entire line of brand new Cat® machines built to stand up to the most rugged environments. Our Cat product line of more than 300 machines shows that we’re committed to being an industry leader that supplies durable and reliable equipment. From telehandlers to skid steer loaders and backhoes, we carry a variety of equipment types with different dimensions, capabilities and features. We work hard to understand exactly what you need so we can help you find the perfect machine for greater efficiency and cost savings.

Used Equipment

Some companies know they need certain heavy equipment at their job site, but they don’t have the capital to purchase a new machine outright. Thompson Machinery offers high-quality used equipment that will give you excellent value and stretch your purchasing dollar. Whether you need an on-highway truck, a rock crusher or a generator, we’re here to match you to the perfect solution. We also offer preventive maintenance plans, so we can deliver reliable service and keep your equipment working like it’s supposed to.

Rental Equipment

If you want to try a machine before you buy, only need equipment for a short time or just aren’t ready to purchase new or used equipment, we can help. We have a huge selection of rental equipment and products that offer a flexible and cost-effective solution. You won’t have to worry about owning and operating costs, and you can increase productivity with quality equipment solutions. Our rental fleet includes everything from hydraulic excavators to articulated trucks and a range of compact and heavy equipment. In addition to our selection of both Cat® and Allied manufactured machines, we also offer an extensive inventory of rental power systems and site support equipment ranging from backup and primary generator sets, temperature control and air compressors to lift trucks, aerial work platforms and work tool attachments.

Parts and Service

With 24/7 parts and service support – including full-service branches equipped with the most up-to-date diagnostic and repair equipment, factory-trained technicians, and the area’s largest fleet of field service trucks – Thompson Machinery can be your total equipment solutions provider.

You need available parts at all times to keep your heavy equipment running. Fortunately, we supply new parts through all of our facilities — as well as Thompson Exchange components — for the days when avoiding downtime is critical. You can also purchase used, unused and reconditioned items if the cost is a factor. Trust us to provide high-quality and reliable parts that will keep your equipment running and help you save money on costly downtime.

At some point, every machine needs service. Whether it’s field service, preventive maintenance or hydraulic repairs, you need a company you trust to deliver required services at the right times. Thompson Machinery has a fleet of more than 50 field service vehicles as well as more than 200 trained service professionals ready to provide product support for your equipment from Caterpillar. Whenever you purchase new or used equipment or rent from us, we’ll develop a product support strategy with you to handle everything from changing the oil to a total machine rebuild.
