Equipment Exchange

Are you interested in the Equipment Exchange? As part of the FARM Program, equipment is often given to clients through the recommendation of a Rural Rehabilitation Specialist and paid for by a separate funding source. This assistive technology and farming equipment makes their daily tasks more manageable despite their disabilities.

See What’s Available or Submit Equipment

There are times when certain equipment is no longer needed by a farmer; reasons include the inability to keep farming, death, or change in farm focus. For whatever the reason, knowing it was given to them encourages them to want to gift it on. The Agricultural Equipment Exchange (AEE) is a web-based resource for Wisconsin’s farmers with a goal of reducing the waste of serviceable equipment, making it available for others who can use it. By using this exchange program, equipment can be listed for sale by the owner, at a reasonable cost or free, and is marked as deliverable or available for pickup, along with the contact information.

Our FARM Rural Rehabilitation Specialists often have contact with farmers who need access to reasonably priced, used equipment. There are farmers who don’t qualify for funding through our separate funding sources, but can be helped in other ways by our specialists. When this equipment is donated to ESW and listed on the AEE site, ESW is able to offer this available equipment to these farmers.

However, the AEE is for anyone in need. The website is open to the public to utilize, you just need to login and either request a piece of equipment that is available, or make direct contact with the seller.

If you have a piece of equipment you would like to submit, please fill out our online submission form or contact Melba Brown at 608-237-1446.
