New owners Steve & Annie Ricci moved to Bigfork in 2013 with their six-month-old son, Hunter, from Washington State. Steve has worked in the equipment rental and construction industry for over 32 years. Annie is a certified business and leadership coach and works with clients across the globe. Hunter enjoys jujitsu and playing baseball. As a family, we enjoy all the recreation this state has to offer such as camping, boating, hunting, fishing, skiing and snowshoeing. You can expect to see our dog, Birch, with us on our adventures and at the rental shop.

Troy Sams is our Yard Manager & Lead CDL Driver. Troy’s extensive knowledge and experience come from his years on the family farm and working as a lineman on the Highline.
