Murray Agricultural Equipment – Australian Farming History Part III

Murray Agricultural Equipment manufactures agricultural implements specialising in Harrows that aid Cultivation, Levelling and Pasture operations. Manufacturers for over a century, the result is a complete range of Harrows, Drawbars and Frames for nearly every application – built with skill from quality materials and proven in Australian soils over four generations.Dandenong began to rapidly change in this period from a small market town to a booming industrial city.

In this period the company supplied many of the major agricultural implement manufacturers with harrows.

A close association with International Harvester spanning more than 30 years helped cement the company as a premier implement manufacturer.

A number of changes occurred with Leslie Taylor passing away late 1962 and Leslie Murray passing away in July 1969. Don Murray & Lawrie Taylor continued to run the business.

Lawrie later became a board member of the Dandenong District Hospital where he remained for 27 years. The years continued with family members continuing to work for the organisation.

Lawrie’s son, Christopher Taylor joined the business in 1977.

Chris pursued fresh marketing ideas and sought to increase sales nationwide as well as internationally.
