KDE is one of few BouMatic dealers in North America to be BouMatic Certified. BouMatic Certification did not come easy - we had to take every available training course that BouMatic offers in order to become a certified dealer. What is the significance of being a BouMatic Certified Dealer - you may ask. Well, since we had to take all of the available training to be BouMatic Certified, we have the maximum amount of knowledge about the BouMatic products that we sell and service. You can trust us, now more than ever, to deliver professional and knowledgeable sales and service to you and your farm.
KDE has a service technician on call 24/7 in both our Norwood office and our Watertown branch, with an answering service to take your calls during our closed hours. No matter what time, and no matter what day, we have a technician to assist you with your needs.
