About Us

John Shearer is one of Australia’s most trusted farm machinery manufacturers.

Since 1877 we’ve been engineering and building farm machinery in Australia with the input of end-users from all over the country. Our ongoing commitment to developing machines to fit our nation’s unique and often harsh conditions has resulted in the long service life now synonymous with the Shearer name.

By manufacturing locally our factory is never too far from the field. Owners of Shearer machines have unrivalled after-sales support through our nation-wide network of Dealers. Spare parts and expert knowledge are just a phone call away and you can always talk to an experienced local Dealer.

Video: Colin Prosser of Tintinara has tried foreign-made alternatives but always comes back to Shearer for robust, easy to operate machines that stand the test of time in harsh, local conditions.
