The business has expanded to 10 locations in Oklahoma and nine in Iowa, including the corporate office in Enid, Okla. P & K Equipment pays attention to the different demographic profiles in each store and provides goods and services that match those demographics.

Products and Services: The Owasso location, which opened in 2007, is more urban, with most customers being residential, commercial, hobby or smaller farm owners.

Also available is a full line of Stihl products including weed eaters, leaf blowers and saws. Another part of the inventory includes Honda small engine products, such as walk-behind mowers, generators and water pumps. In addition, hobby and smaller farmers’ often seek compact tractors and related implements such as box blades and rotary cutters to clear or keep down brush. Most have front end loaders to help with moving hay and feeding livestock. All products are supported by compatible John Deere oils, filters and hand tools as well as trained parts and service departments technicians servicing everything they sell.
