ATMAX Equipment Co. was started in 2001 by Tim Ward and his father, David Ward Jr., to build compact equipment for the landscaping and construction industries that would greatly improve the productivity and profitability of companies. After 10 years and endless hours of research & development, ATMAX has two product lines that do just this – increase one’s productivity and profitability! These products are the TraxMax and the MowerMax.

The TraxMax

In 1999, Tim purchased two Moffett® truck mounted forklifts for his family’s sod farm in central Florida. He quickly realized that these three wheeled machines would not easily handle the sugar sand found on most Florida construction sites. He also realized that rough terrain forklifts would not handle the sand or slopes very well.

About this time, compact track loaders were becoming more popular, and Tim determined that a rubber tracked forklift would be much more advantageous in the sandy soils of Florida as well as in hilly and mountainous regions. So after six years of extensive research and development, TraxMax w/ MaxAttach and attachmentsand at least a half dozen prototypes, ATMAX Equipment began producing the world’s first truck-mounted, rubber tracked forklift in January of 2007.

Additionally, coming from the sod industry, Tim also knew that big rolled sod was the fastest most efficient way to install sod and turf. So he made the TraxMax into a Transformer! Now, without even having to get off the TraxMax, an operator can transform his forklift into a big roll sod installer or compact track installer in 2 minutes!

The MowerMax

In 2004, Tim was driving to work on I-75 and saw a small, zero turn mower trying to mow around a sign pole in the median. The mower was maneuvering around the pole very easily, however, due to the thick and tall grass, it was going very slowly. Then there was a tractor with a pull behind, flex wing mower that was mowing very well in the straight open but could not navigate around obstacles very well. Thus, the beginning of the MowerMax.

After 7 years of research & development, with a lot of market feedback from the commercial/industrial mowing industry, ATMAX has introduced the MowerMax product line. Designed specifically to be the most productive commercial/industrial mower on the market, the MowerMax mowers have five main attributes that set them apart from other mowers:

  • Extraordinary Maneuverability
  • Exceptional Visibility
  • Excellent Mowing Capabilities
  • Easy Transportability
  • Extra Durability
