Todd & Katie
Todd is the owner of TBE Equipment and also owns Pier Pups. Katie (shown here with two of the couple’s Golden Retrievers) owns and operates her own business, Think Pawsitive in Waukesha. Todd was born in Green Bay (yes, he’s a Packers fan), moved to Waukesha at age 12 and graduated from Waukesha South High School. He and Katie live with a family of “kids who are furry and have four legs.”
TBE Equipment was established in 1994 to bring high-quality lawn and garden equipment to southern Wisconsin. It began by selling trailers and in 2006 expanded to outdoor power equipment. Todd purchased the business in 2018 and in 2022 a second location in Richfield was opened to better serve customers and reach a wider audience across southern Wisconsin.
When customers started asking for trailers to transport equipment, TBE Equipment added a full line that ranges in size and shape and includes both covered and open-board. Today, our customers come from all over Wisconsin and surrounding states to purchase the perfect trailer to meet their transportation needs. Whether you are a weekend warrior or a landscape professional, TBE Equipment provides quality products and services.
TBE Equipment also offers superior aftermarket support with authentic parts. Service is done by factory-trained technicians who are happy to assist you in determining the correct part or assessing your equipment for repair. We carry a full stock of DIY parts and components for small engines and trailers alike.

Matt is the general manager of TBE’s Appleton location. Previously, he worked at I-41 Trailer
Center, which was purchased by TBE in early 2023. His job there was in maintenance and
repair, so he knows TBE’s products inside and out.
As general manager, Matt likes the variety of running the Appleton location’s day-to-day
business. He especially likes knowing that every day is a chance to find just the right product for
a TBE customer, whether it’s off the show floor or a customized solution. “Fulfilling someone’s
unique need is the most fulfilling part of the job.”
Matt grew up in Black Creek, WI. He got his start in a variety of equipment-maintenance roles,
and at one time helped build fire engines at Pierce Manufacturing. He lives in Appleton with his
wife and their two children. His family loves to camp, and in his spare time Matt is often
operating radio-controlled cars or working in his home shop on woodworking and metal
