About Grainline

The History of Grainline

Established in Wagga Wagga since 1979, Grainline is a local family business, owned and operated by the Stead Family Trust. The family business originated in Sydney, at 743 Harris Street, Ultimo in 1913. Trading as Stead and Baker, they were dedicated to the Australian Rural Industry, as is Grainline today.

In 1970, Stead and Baker opened a shop in Baylis Street, Wagga Wagga, registered as Stead’s Farm Hardware. The fact that Stead and Baker were well known in the rural community for generations, meant the move from the city was beneficial to all.

Grainline became a division of Stead’s Farm Hardware in 1979, importing grain loss monitors, moisture meters, poly hoppers etc, and manufacturing 4” pencil augers. As the Grainline manufacturing business developed the range increased, including transportable and mobile augers, drill fils, rota doors and other grain handling  products.

Grainline is dedicated to all our customers by delivering a fully backed quality product with our 100% satisfaction guarantee. We want to promote confidence by diligently helping our distributors, dealers and end users to select the best product for their various applications.
