About Us

Meet Peter Merretz, Elite Tractors

I learnt from a pretty young age that I had to stand on my own two feet and take responsibility for myself.

I realized that when I was a 12-year old boy working in a produce and farm supplies store in my very first job.

I’m a little bit older and wiser now and lost a bit of hair but my beliefs and values are much the same.

Over the years I’ve imported furniture, built a successful handyman business and been involved in retail, finance, building and maintenance, hardware, defence and even the healthcare industry.

However none of that was fulfilling me

So I’ve gone back to my roots in farming and tractors from when I was a youngster.

I was lucky enough to grow up on a small 25-acre hobby farm about 30 minutes outside of Bundaberg.

Back then though my parents were not able to afford a tractor for our property because it was only possible to buy the big brand products with the big brand prices.

As a result we had to hire outside contractors or neighbouring farmers to help us with things such as slashing, fencing, trenching and so on.

However in 2020, things are a lot different.

People who contact me or download my Complimentary Price & Product Tractor Guide often ask me why did I start Elite Tractors?

Okay, where do I start?

Well there is a lot more choice now for hobby farmers, lifestyle property owners and emerging farmers to get their work done more efficiently, safer and cost effective which I wish was available when I was growing up on our family property.

However with so many tractor models and suppliers to choose from there is also a real mixed bag of product offerings. Some people or businesses are importing tractors without knowing whether they comply with Australian regulations or not or even what sort of quality they are really selling.

So this can make it really confusing and costly for people who want 2WD and 4WD diesel tractors to sort through and find the model that matches their needs.

I chose these tractors product because I would like to show hobby lifestyle property owners, professional and hobby farmers that it is possible to get an affordable tractor for a great price that’s reliable quality built and delivers great features and benefits as well.

I really think this is why Elite Tractors at Toowoomba Queensland is in business!

Naturally there are other reasons too. Farming is the backbone of Australia and I’m a country boy so it makes sense to do something I believe in and am passionate about.

Life is too short and spending it doing something you’re not passionate about isn’t the way to go as far as I am concerned. And because I’m a country boy, I also understand what people need tractors for and what they need them to do so which many clients relate to.

What do I do in my time off?

Well I have a beautiful wife who loves the outdoors nearly as much as I do. So we go mountain biking and fishing. I also enjoy learning as much as I can about how things work and the latest developments and working out how to apply that information to my life and business to develop and improve productivity, quality and efficiency for our business and our customers.

So that’s a little about the Elite Tractors and me story which I hope you found interesting.
