Tilly’s Crawler Parts has been supplying used and new non-genuine parts for earthmoving equipment for over 35 years. From their base in Toowoomba, Southeast Queensland, Tilly’s ships quality parts across Australia and around the world.
The Tilly’s Crawler Parts story began in 1924 when Richard Tilly purchased one of the first ever crawler tractors imported into Australia, a Holt 2 Ton. The Holt Manufacturing Company and the Best Tractor Company later amalgamated to form the Caterpillar Tractor Company.
In 1965, Richard’s son Hugh used bulldozers for land development at Condamine, and later began reconditioning machines for sale. After completing a university degree and then a diesel fitter’s apprenticeship, in 1984 Richard’s grandson Andrew visited the Kronk’s Earthmoving Machinery Auction in Toowoomba, and a business was born.
Tilly’s has become one of the most iconic brands in the earthmoving and excavation industry. With a reputation for being one of Australia’s most trusted suppliers of quality new and used parts and used machinery.
Tilly’s now stocks over 43,000 new part lines and over 15,000 used parts.
Tilly’s understands that down-time with machinery is costly and inefficient. The extensive stock inventory and a reputation for timely service delivery ensures Tilly’s promise of right part, right price, right now rings true.
Tilly’s extensive experience and expertise in the large earthmoving machinery industry has led to the team seeking to provide small bore engine owners and operators with a cost-effective option for a proactive approach to regular machine maintenance. This approach is proven to both extend engine life and improve machine performance.
As part of the company’s long-term commitment to innovation and quality, Tilly’s is now proud to announce the arrival of an introductory range of quality alternative new parts for small bore engine rebuilds. Complementing and expanding Tilly’s already extensive parts range, the company is proud to be the Australian distributor for Maxiforce Diesel Engine Parts.

The Maxiforce Research and Product Development team, with over 75 years of experience, is committed to utilising cutting edge technology and strenuous product testing to ensure the quality of their parts.
