The History

VALPADANA established SEP, specialized in manufacturing and marketing mowing machines.

SEP created the mowing machine with 1 wheel and side mowing bar, a machine that was to become a reference point in ground care spheres.

Always innovative, SEP produced a reversible two-wheeled tractor that could also be used with frontal impleme

The company began producing a family of steerage hoes designed to meet specific requirements for soil working and small transporting jobs.

The trailers hitched to the steerage hoes became an integral part of the machines, which now turned into transporters.

The hydrostatic assembly designed by SEP was installed in a small tractor and marketed under the name of GULLIVER.

SEP was taken over by ARGO S.p.A., holding company of the group to which LANDINI S.p.A. also belonged. However, SEP still continued to be autonomously run as regards technical, sales and administrative matters.

SEP S.p.A. took on the new name of VALPADANA S.p.A. in 2001. This change in the business name underscored the company’s renewed commitment in the tractor manufacturing field besides strengthening its traditional core-business sphere, i.e. manufacturing and marketing two-wheeled tractors, steerage hoes and power-driven mowers under the SEP trademark. Production was concentrated in the factory of San Martino in Rio, via Don Pasquino Borghi, where VALPADANA S.p.A. has its registered offices

JUNIOR, the new hydrostatic tractor with 2 ratios and 12 to 16 HP power ratings was produced.

The product range continued to evolve and the MULTY 30 HST series, featur-ing a Perkins three-cylinder 26 HP engine, made its debut. This was the smallest all-purpose implement-towing tractor with hydrostatic transmission and reversible cockpit available on the market.

SEP widened its range to include the Dumpy “Mini-Transporter” available in a vast choice of models, with mechanical and hydrostatic versions, and with different types of engine.

Further evolution of the one axle machines series with the introduction of 3 new models: MFC 70 (hobby motor mower), MFT 300 (flail mower), MFH 800 (hydrostatic implement carrier). New tractor Multy 730 HST–R equipped with new Yanmar engine of 26 HP, reverse driving position and new hydrostatic transmission with 2 speeds.
