Magnum Machine Works was founded in 2005 by Jimmy, Janice and James Sweet. 


We are a custom machine and attachment manufacturer as well as a repair facility for the Pipeline, Railroad and Construction industries. We manufacture hydraulic cradle boring machines that we offer for sale and rent.  We service all makes of machines, including our own. We understand the importance of keeping machines up and running consistently as we have worked in the pipeline industry for decades ourselves. 


In addition to our manufacturing and repair services, we also specialize in rebuilds of pipelayers and converting live booms to hydraulic. We strive to meet contractors deadlines in getting their equipment to them as well as keeping their equipment running.
