A 20.5-acre commercial development west of Interstate 49 in Springdale recently sold for $3.5 million.

KNWA RE Springdale LLC, led by president John Scott, bought the Springdale Tractor Co./Kubota property at 6160 W. Sunset Ave. The Eugene Baker Revocable Trust was the seller.

City Title & Closing LLC was the title agent.

Scott is president of Springdale Tractor Co., comprised of six Kubota dealerships in Oklahoma (3) and Arkansas (3). He and two other investors purchased four dealerships in Springdale, Berryville, Harrison and Grove, Okla., in 2012 for an undisclosed amount. Gene Baker, who died June 2, 2012, owned and operated Springdale Tractor for 40 years.

When the Bakers sold the business that year, they kept ownership of the Springdale land and leased it to the new business owners.

“This is our largest store, and we needed to own the property here for long-term stability,” Scott said. “We’ve got room to expand if we decide to do that, but there are no immediate plans to do anything. Other than sell tractors.”

Scott said the Sunset Avenue building is approximately 11,000 square feet. He said the company still leases the land at some of its other dealerships. Since the 2012 acquisition, Springdale Tractor has added Oklahoma dealerships in Pryor and Tulsa.
