DuraTech Industries International, Inc. (originally Haybuster Manufacturing) was established in 1966, and was initially located in Minot, North Dakota. The founder of the company, Joe Anderson was a rancher and farmer who recognized the benefits of grinding hay for his livestock herd. However, the grinders available then were too large and expensive for the average rancher or farmer to own and operate. Joe's vision was to build a tub grinder that would better fit the agricultural application, thus beginning J&J Manufacturing which was subsequently named HAYBUSTER MANUFACTURING COMPANY. In the early 1970's, HAYBUSTER was relocated to a larger facility in Jamestown, North Dakota (now 46 acres and 206,500 sq ft under roof) where extra emphasis was placed on expanding the company's product line. During this time, additional hay processing and handling equipment products were developed. Additionally, other agriculturally related products were developed by HAYBUSTER, including "no-till" drills, undercutters, and rock pickers.
East-Can has been representing Haybuster since 2005 and has enjoyed selling its high-quality machinery to the Ontario and Quebec agricultural markets. With over 500 machines sold in Ontario/Quebec, Haybuster has been the market leader in sales of Tub-grinders, bale shredders, and rock pickers. We are also happy to announce starting January 2022 that we are now the representative for New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Price Edward Island, and Newfoundland.
