We strive to provide friendly, quick, affordable service to keep you moving. As the only full-line dealer in the area, we’re committed to the first-time buyers, the experienced contractors, and the homeowners looking for a rental. Being of service to our customers is our first priority and we are proud to be serving the Fort Wayne, Grabill, and surrounding communities.

Bobcat of Fort Wayne was founded in 1964 by Blankenbaker and Maier under the name “B&M Equipment.” After many years, a location change, and a name change, Mr. Maier retired in 1999 and turned over the reins to Wyatt and Sherry Akers – the then owners of Bobcat of Fort Wayne.

July 2013 brought another change to the business. Buddy Funk accepted the titles of Owner and President, allowing Wyatt Akers to enjoy his well-deserved retirement.

Throughout the years, new ideas, new designs, new product lines, and new faces (along with some you may still recognize) have made Bobcat of Fort Wayne into what it is today – your only full-service local Bobcat dealer offering the best in compact construction equipment. Orange, black and white are colors we are proud of and want you to be, too.


“This business is a pleasure to operate because of our amazing and loyal customers. We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your continued support. We are truly blessed to have customers like you.”
