John Brooks Ltd has been supplying the New Zealand agriculture industry with quality engineering products and services for over 50 years. In 1964 we began producing a range of variable speed motors and gearboxes that were used in drive systems by New Zealand wool blenders. Ultimately, these were so successful that they were exported all over the world, which continues today.
Since 1964, John Brooks Ltd has continually grown, and we now supply a wide range of agricultural engineering products including belt & chain drives, bearings, rod ends, motors, and lubrication. With our unique and in-depth understanding of New Zealand farming and environmental conditions, we are well placed to both manufacture and maintain the machinery that drives this important New Zealand export sector.
Wherever you are located in NZ, we can help – especially with machinery breakdowns. We have local distributors and stockists across New Zealand for many of our popular product lines, including Vee Belts and Chains. We stock highly reliable branded products including Roflex / Contitech vee & synchronous drive belts, DID chains, Poggi and Bibby couplings, and drives from KB Electronics, ABB, and Teco. We additionally sell and support Reduction gearboxes, Wymark lubricators, Tecom Plastic bearing housings, Brooksdrive and Tramec Worm gearboxes, Baldor AC & DC motors, KB DC Speed controls, Bi-Loc & Alloy Vee Pulleys.
The team at John Brooks Ltd will customise an engineering solution just for you. Need heavy shock load capabilities? Our high-powered Roulunds Cog belts are a perfect fit. Need to clutch and enable slip on belts? The Roulunds Garden Series of belts will give good flexibility. Have pumps that require regular lubrication but are hard to access? Use our Wymark Lubricators to keep things moving along nicely. And to avoid mud and rain hassles and keep your dairy equipment lasting throughout the season, we offer Dodge bearings that incorporate a triple lip seal, lab seal and are fully purgeable - making them the complete bearing.
Over the years we’ve supplied some of New Zealand’s most successful companies including Masport & Steelfort– with belts & couplings for mowers, and Wattle’s – with spare parts and support for peas and beans harvesting. We’ve also provided motors, DC drives and gearboxes for users of onion and potato bags, due to the wide speed range and reliability of our products. Our specialist agriculture engineering knowledge has been used by a wide range of NZ companies.
We provide full customer support and advice on products and installations that will achieve optimum performance, via telephone (worldwide), and via New Zealand on-site visits.
