Founded with a vision.

Focused on you.

Cal-Line Equipment was founded in 1986 by Dennis Knoll in Livermore, California, as an equipment sales and service business for the tree and landscape industries. Cal-Line remained a family-owned business until joining Owen Equipment in 2021. Yet, even today, the Knoll family is still involved in the daily operations of the company.

Over the decades, we’ve specialized in tree-related equipment, and we’ve grown considerably as the only company catering to the arborist industry. We are the global leader in sales for Bandit Industries with three locations across California. We carry a wide range of Bandit woodchippers, stump grinders, horizontal grinders and whole tree chippers. In addition, we are a leader in promoting education within our industry, conducting seminars ranging from safety to operations & maintenance to bugs & disease.

The key to our success has been our people. And that’s still true today. Every team member is extremely knowledgeable about our products and the tree industry. Whether it’s parts, service or sales, we know what you need because we know what you do.
