Updated fabric machine design as of April 2016

As of April 2016, we are updating our fabric machine design and offering two models. Our modified design will come in Standard and Heavy models. Both designs will use different parts than our Original model. Please see the Mesh Machines page for a comparison of the updated models.

NOTE: If you purchased a machine prior to April 2016, please be advised that replacement parts for the front plows will take up to 4 months to receive from John Deere. Please contact us if you are in need of parts as we may have a limited supply on hand.

Pricing & Availability

Like many businesses, MMM started from a personal need. Arthur McIlravy was installing fabric for the Haakon County Conservation District. The machine the District owned did not work well at all. Arthur, frustrated by the amount of work needed to install the fabric and keep the machine going, decided to build his own machine. The rest, as they say, is history. Eventually he started selling the machines, and was asked about tree planters. So, the Dakota Tree Planter was created. Nearby districts contracted with MMM to install their fabric, folks who couldn't get cost share contracted for tree planting services, and so on. (Read more about our start in this article published in NACD's Forestry Notes.)

Machinery Built with Experience

Because we use our machines, we know what your job involves. We don't like to shovel, so we designed a system to cover the edges so you don't have to shovel until you reach the end of a roll or a row.

We plant trees, too, so our planters are also a field-tested design. Our machinery is built to work hard so you don't have to.

Built to Make your Job Easier

McIlravy Mesh Machines are a unique design, built from the ground up, using the best parts and materials. Our quality is unsurpassed. Our mesh machines are strong, durable, and will last you for years and years. The same quality goes into our tree planters as well. We know, because we use the same machines we sell.

We use John Deere parts because we know how frustrating it can be to make repairs when the parts are custom or not easy to find. If your local John Deere dealership doesn't carry the parts we use, we can ship them to you quickly because our dealer stocks them for us.

Built with Quality & Easily Available Parts


McIlravy Mesh Machines (MMM) is a family-owned business with a commitment to quality and customer service.
