TW Equipment

About Us


TW Equipment is a family owned and operated company based out of Brackettville, Texas. We value family business as we have been involved with heavy equipment and ranching for four generations. Joe York Sr. ranched in Kinney county and supplemented with a water well drilling business. In the late 1950’s he bought his first dozer and began working the land. He always loved Caterpillar equipment and he passed that love onto his son Joe York Jr. Joe York Jr bought two new D8Hs in that mid-sixties and used them in railroad derailment cleanup and ranch clearing and development. Through the years Joe traded in hundreds of pieces of heavy equipment and partnered in York and Hall based in Uvalde, TX which specialized in heavy construction.

In the late 1980’s, Tim Ward a nephew to Joe York Jr and a grandson of Joe York Sr bought his first dozer a Cat D7F creating TW Equipment LLC and began to take over the family lineage in buying and selling heavy equipment. He credits most of his experience and learning to his Grandfather Joe York Sr whom he thought very highly of. He was an honest man who cared about God and family first. His passion for quality work at a fair price is what we have made a cornerstone at TW Equipment. Today, Tim Ward runs the business with his son Blake Ward. As the years have gone by and the dynamics of the business have changed, we have not lost those foundations. We look forward to proudly serving you.

Ranch development water solutions

Many landowners often talk about the struggle of not having well water readily available on sections of their property. Thru the years earthin tanks/ponds have been built on properties but fail to hold water well due to improper sealing. We have developed our own formula for sealing earthin tanks/ponds using natural clay available on property or neighboring properties. Where native clay is not available, we use sealing bentonite brought in from our supplier or we haul in clay from one of the clay pits we have established around the area. We have had great success in performing tank sealing and have references available upon request.

Tank/Pond building

Tank/Pond building from scratch in undeveloped ground. Utilizing a variety of our heavy equipment through the years we have developed many tanks/ponds of all different sizes throughout the area. Project sizes we have worked on vary in size from .5 acres up to 60 acres.
