Our History

KB Engineering began in 1977 when Keith Bartlett commenced business as a fitter & turner in the small rural township of Deniliquin, NSW, Australia. As time progressed his skills were sought to repair all types of agricultural machinery and beyond.


As the demands of irrigators continued, Keith saw an opportunity to manufacture a range of self priming pumps. This followed shortly by the development of a soil levelling machine now known as the KB Grader Board. Machines can be found working successfully in every farming region throughout Australia, further confirming their claim to extreme durability and versatility. The KB Grader Board is also exported to the Middle East, Egypt, Sudan, Tanzania and USA.

KB Engineering is also the exclusive manufacturers of the KB Rotacon Leveller. The machine has a worldwide patent.

KB Engineering today remains at the cutting edge of custom machine design and manufacture. The company is consistently striving to create more effective machinery.

The company is privately owned, operated and proudly Australian.
