Our Motto: Quality

Simply powerful chipping

Everything started more than 65 years ago. At that time, we still offered the complete agriculture portfolio. We already then felt passionate for long-term technology in robust machines for municipalities, horticulture, and landscaping. And a few machines were exciting with respect to quality.

In the following years, our passion for quality turned into our motto. Then, users are only excited about machines, which work daily without problems. Really good quality can inspire and convince only.

So, we started to optimize everything: For example, scarifiers: When used more frequently, previously available scarifiers seemed to lose their effectiveness. Hence, we developed a robust and powerful scarifier. As result, our JBM 500 already supported demanded users 40 years ago.

2 year later, we patented our dual leveling machine. Agria Werke assumed sales and distribution for Europe.
Today, we have focused for almost 30 years on the production of powerful, stable wood chippers and stump grinders for professional applications. Thoughtfully designed and realized with solid and proven components.
Many quality-conscious rental stations, municipalities, tree felling operations and gardening and landscaping companies throughout Europe know: You can count on a JBM. And the same applies to our fast, friendly, and competent service.

When can we welcome you as JBM customer?
