With over 30 years in the tractor and equipment business, Jim Ackerman took his hobby of tinkering with small farm & compact tractors to become one of the most knowlegeable people in the compact & utility tractor industry in the east.
Jim's sales started out of his barn in Fairfax, Vermont in the late 1980s and by 1995 was distributing implements & trailers to dealers throughout New England, Upstate NY, & Quebec. It is through these dealers he was able to hand pick quality used tractors, skidsteers & excavators for his customers throughout the northeast...Now forward the clock to 2000 when Jim entered into an agreement to acquire Walt's Equipment, a small Kubota dealer in Berlin, Vermont. By 2003 Riverside Tractor as it was known, became one of the most successful Kubota dealers in the U.S.
In October 2012 Jim sold Riverside Tractor and returned to his roots in the used equipment, trailer & classic car world.
Jim looks forward to serving the used equipment needs of homeowners, landscapers, contractors, vegetable, horse & hobby farmers by again offering handpicked quality used tractors, attachments & construction equipment.
Ackerman Equipment is pleased to offer Cargo trailers from Freedom & Homesteader Trailer... Dump, utility & equipment trailers from Homesteader & Quality. We are also Northern New England's dealer for Stallion Horse Trailers.
