R W Crawford Agricultural Machinery was founded by Bob Crawford in October 1980, initially buying and selling used farm machinery. We now specialise in providing farm machinery and 4×4 vehicle Sales, Servicing and Parts sales across Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire.
Our Head Office is in Writtle, on the outskirts of Chelmsford, Essex.
Having previously been a Case IH and JCB dealer, in 2001, R W Crawford proudly took on the Massey Ferguson Franchise. This was to be the start of a long and established relationship with AGCO. With the Massey Ferguson franchise being a success, in 2003, R W Crawford took on Challenger. Following further success with Challenger, R W Crawford felt that the ongoing growth and success of the company meant that we were able to take on a further AGCO Franchise, Fendt. Check out our range of used Fendt tractors.
R W Crawford started running the Challenger Franchise in Kent from our Essex Depot. We were awarded the Fendt franchise in 2005, and the aim was to reciprocate the success of our Essex depot in Kent. A suitable site was located just off Junction 8 of the M20, and planning was secured. On Wednesday 26th June 2013, the newly built state of the art farm machinery dealership opened in Charing, Nr Ashford, Kent.
Following the success of our new depot in Kent, solid foundations formed. We felt we were able to take on two more franchises at our Kent depot. At the beginning of 2014, we proudly announced that we had taken on the Valtra and Isuzu Franchises.
