About N&S Tractor

ray nutcherThank you for visiting N&S Tractor. For those of you unfamiliar with us, here is a little history on the company. My father (Ray Nutcher), and Sam Stevinson started N&S Tractor in 1954 as a Case tractor dealership at 15th & O streets, near downtown in Merced, California. After Sam returned to farming, my father continued alone until my brothers and I were able to join in the business. In 1970, the lot at 600 S. Highway 59 was purchased and the first building was erected. The business became a New Holland dealership in 1971. By the mid 1970’s N&S Tractor had become one of the nation’s largest dealerships in sales of both Case and New Holland equipment. To meet all the needs of its customers, shops were enlarged and other lines were added. In addition, to Case and New Holland equipment lines, we now carry such brands as: JCB, Wilcox, Rears, Rhino, Durand-Weyland, Grouser, Claas, Namco, Flory, COE, Great Plains, Schmeiser, Darf, Trimble, Harlo, and others. For more information please go to our Products section.

Today at N&S Tractor, you’ll find the newest innovations for both agri-business and construction equipment combined with old fashioned “know how” and service. Our business includes not only the local sales area, but has grown to supplying equipment and parts around the world. My father and Sam started a tradition of innovation and partnerships with their customers. I am proud to lead an excellent team of employees in continuing those efforts. I would like to thank all of our customers over the decades that have trusted us to help them grow their business and look forward to working with them in the future.
