About Us

The Nation's Choice for Low Disturbance Machinery

From our Family to Yours

Founded in 1983 by Edward Weaving, Weaving Machinery has always been a family run farm equipment company. From the outset our aim has been to offer farmers high-quality agricultural machinery that is effective yet simple to operate, built with the farmer in mind. As a family-run company with a skilled and experienced team, we always place the customers at the centre of what we do. Our focus is always on enabling an efficient and cost-effective approach to low disturbance farming. 

Our decades of experience and our continued product development have made us a leading manufacturer of low disturbance drills and cultivators. This is robustly supported by our strong importer network, allowing us to offer our customers a high-quality selection of flail mowers, hedge cutters, silage and grassland equipment from leading European manufacturers. With continuous further developments and improvements, we ensure that our products are always up to date and in line with current standards and technologies.

1999 - Mammut joins Weaving Machinery

The Mammut product range was suggested to us by another dealer back in the 1990s, so we introduced ourselves to Reinhold Frauscher, the CEO of Mammut Maschinenbau GmbH and following a strict vetting process Weaving Machinery was chosen as the official UK stockist. Like Weaving Machinery, Mammut is a family run company and so our core values are closely aligned. Both companies are committed to delivering good quality, practical agricultural machinery solutions with the focus on delivering benefits to the customer, with the decision-making process on new machinery development often led by first hand customer feedback.
