The Handy range of garden machinery has been developed through many years of experience to create an affordable solution to those demanding gardening tasks around the home.  Handy was founded in 1938 by Geoffrey Handy in Old Town Swindon as a specialist Garden Machinery Dealer.  Since then, Handy’s have grown significantly and now supply a full range of affordable garden machinery solutions to many retail partners across the UK and Norther Ireland.  The Handy brand today resides as one of the key brands in Handy Distributions portfolio and has been growing in strength through 79 years of industry experience thus ensuring we only bring to market well engineered, robust products that can really do the job in hand……at affordable prices of course! 

We believe that everyone should be able to have access to the right equipment to keep a well-maintained garden and this is what the Handy brand strives to deliver.  We believe that gardening should be a pleasurable and relaxing pastime, not a chore, and the right machines are essential for making light work of your gardening tasks. To help achieve this, “The Handy” brand offers a range of products from petrol powered to electric power or simply manual operation and we have a solution for almost everything whether it be for tilling, moving, clearing, logging, cutting, shredding, cleaning, sawing, spraying, spreading, rolling or even snow clearance.  Our Construction range provides an affordable yet powerful solution to those customers who require heavy duty equipment for onsite application such as mixers, compactors and transporters. Handy machines are built to the highest standards with robust materials and ergonomic design. Where petrol engines are included, we offer a range of powerful, modern engines as well as engines from industry leader Briggs & Stratton

Today we remain a family owned business with family values to match and employ over 80 staff operating out of two warehouse locations in Swindon.  Many of our staff have worked within the Garden Machinery industry themselves for years or have joined us with a wealth of experience to ensure we provide our customers with superb products and outstanding knowledge and aftersales support.

Now that’s Handy.
