Dykes Equipment dba Appling Motors Introduced as New Takeuchi Dealer

ATLANTA, GA — Takeuchi-US, a manufacturer of compact equipment, announces Dykes Equipment doing business as (dba) Appling Motors as a new dealer, serving South Georgia. The full-service dealer specializes in new and used equipment. They will carry Takeuchi excavators, skid steer loaders, track loaders and wheel loaders for their primary customer base of agriculture and small to medium contractors.

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 Co. Inc. dba Appling Motors. Today, Appling Motors provides customers with an array of products, parts and service.

“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,” Dykes said. “Our location on a main road through Baxley with roof-covered display areas allows us to showcase Takeuchi as a premier product, while also protecting units from harsh weather conditions.”

“We are very excited to start work with Appling Motors, which shows a great aptitude for growing its business,” said Kim Robinson, Director of Dealer Development at Takeuchi. “Appling Motors has been around for decades and is very reputable throughout South Georgia. We know they will do a great job with our machines.”
