Who is Value-Leader?

Value-Leader Implements was started in 1995 to provide a high quality high value option to compete with USA tractor dealership branded products. The focus has always been on providing the US consumer with long lasting dependable equipment. This is more value for our customers money. 

This is done by always using high quality components and testing the components use in our implements. We also test the finished products for dependability, to make sure that they not only work but, that they last. We strive for our implement to be trouble free, when maintained, for not less than a 5 year period. 

Value-Leader was the first USA implement company to offer a two year warranty on tractor implements. 


Betstco Value-Leader backhoe attachments are a perfect combination of size and power. Light enough to move around, yet strong enough to get the tough jobs done. Some backhoe attachments boost heavier weight, but the weight is not power or durability. Additional unnecessary weight only adds stress to the frame of your tractor. Betstco Value-Leader VL-BHMD series backhoe attachments are manufactured using heavy Q-235 (American standard ASTM A-36) structural steel plate, the strongest plate steel available. The pieces are CNC laser cut so that they fit together perfectly, and are then precision welded. This combined with our superior design and high-quality components provides the best backhoe value available.
