The Story

Tractor Zoom’s mission is simple: digitally connect farmers and auctioneers faster than ever before.

Kyle McMahon grew up in southeast Iowa surrounded by an entrepreneurial family who loved the outdoors. Much time was spent hunting Jefferson and Van Buren Counties and helping friends with their fields, crops and livestock. His work ethic and love for equipment led him to start a lawn and landscaping business in Fairfield, which he sold to fund his education at Iowa State University.

After graduation from ISU, Kyle began buying and selling farmland for Summit Agricultural Group. For the next 4 years, Kyle traveled the Midwest reviewing new tracts of land for sale while attending 1,000+ land and equipment auctions. As his passion for agriculture grew, he recognized farmers didn’t have a digitally searchable database for upcoming farm equipment auctions. The automotive and real estate industries had them. ‘For Sale’ farm equipment had them, but why not farm equipment auctions? That’s when he decided to build Tractor Zoom.
