Machinery Scope was founded in 2013 with the goal of improving the way people bought, sold, and managed their farm and construction equipment. We have done this through our equipment appraisals, inspections, and extended warranty plans. In 2018, Machinery Scope introduced Finance Scope, providing innovative finance and lease solutions for the agriculture and construction equipment industries.

Founder, Jacob Bryce:
Machinery Scope was founded by Jacob Bryce in 2013. Jacob grew up on a family farm near Glenwood, MN. Farm life was always very near and dear to him and his family. He owned cattle with his parents, brothers, and sister and was also very active in operating equipment for their row crop farm.
Jacob received his degree in business administration and agribusiness from North Dakota State University. His interest in ag business combined with a passion for farm equipment landed him with Titan Machinery while still in college. Jacob had the good fortune to start his career there, learning from some very progressive minds in the equipment industry. In 2012, Jacob and his wife ended up closer to home to manage a John Deere dealer. Jacob managed multiple locations for Midwest Machinery, before taking the Remarketing Manager position where he oversaw used equipment sales and asset management for Midwest Machinery. At the same time, his vision for creating a better marketplace for used equipment was put into motion with Machinery Scope. It is everyone’s interest to create more opportunities for these exchange to take place and to better protect these equipment investments!
Jacob and his wife Jenna have four children. Jacob also enjoys cattle, wrestling, snowmobiling, time on the lake with his family, and NDSU Bison athletics. Jacob’s goal is to grow a business that provides quality products and services for the equipment industry while helping to facilitate the dreams and ambitions of the Machinery Scope employees and their families. Jacob invites you to contact him or his team to learn more about Machinery Scope.
Account Manager, Joe Bryce:
As you may have guessed, Joe has a lot in common with Jacob. Joe enjoyed growing up on a family farm and is happy to be getting back into the farming industry.

Joe graduated from North Dakota State University with a degree in Radiological Sciences. He started his career with Meritcare in Fargo (which would later become Sanford Health). Before joining Machinery Scope, Joe managed the MRI department at Sanford. Joe’s passion for family and farming always kept him close to home so the invitation to join his brother in business was too good to pass up.
As an account manager, Joe works with Machinery Scope customers to tailor a service to each of their needs. His goal is to provide a service that is second to none. Joe is a professional member of the American Society of Agricultural Appraisers.
Joe and his wife Lacy reside in Alexandria, MN. They have two young kids. Joe’s family is #1 to him. Joe and his family enjoy powersports and Bison athletics. He is excited to be providing a premier product and service.
