Our Legacy

Waggoner began in Madison, Illinois. It was owned and operated by Wilbur Waggoner. At this time, the “Wilbur Waggoner” company was known for trucking, equipment rental, and excavating. The fleet consisted of trucks, backhoes, hi-lifts, crawler cranes, truck cranes, and hydraulic cranes.

In 1986, three partners purchased the Wilbur Waggoner facility, with David S. Yates, being the operating general manager. They continued to follow in Wilbur Waggoner’s steps but leading primarily in crane rental.

In 2020, Alana Yount, the current operations manager, and daughter of David S. Yates solely purchased the company. At this time, Waggoner Equipment Rental, LLC, was able to become a WBE – Woman Business Enterprise – Certified by the Illinois Capital Development.
