About GT Tractors

Greg Taranto was part of a family business that started in 1948 growing poultry in Tyabb, Victoria. Then in 1955, he converted to market gardening. His grass roots experience in this industry has allowed him to both observe & have an active roll in the development of both farming techniques as well as machinery development.

In 1977 he left the farm & started a business in civil earthworks in Queensland. After gaining a mass of experience in this field, he returned to Victoria & pursued his real passion; machinery development.

Starting off small, known to many people as "Mr.Farmall", he rebuilt hundreds of farmalls (a popular rowcrop tractor from the 1950's still commonly used in the industry) & also built a reliable reputation in the industry. This led him to apply his innovative skills in many different fields such as; fibre optic laying machinery & technology - directly with Telstra, sales & servicing of Vermeer tree arbouring equipment, production of scores of asparagus & various other harvest aids & the continued development of rowcrop machinery.

Today, after building literally hundreds of machines, the business is in the heart of rowcrop farming- Devon Meadows, Victoria. Many of Australia's industry leaders are within a close vicinity to our premises & we strive to provide them with innovative custom built machinery to suit their needs.
