About Us

Snedden’s Fencing Products is a rural family business which began in 1996.We are a husband and wife team and employ two of our sons.  With a background of fencing , logging and general rural tasks coupled with a trade in boilermaking and post trade certificates in engineering design Steve Snedden has always enjoyed making life safer and easier with his ideas.

He began winning awards for his inventions in 1996 with The Mortice Safe Chainsaw Attachment – a fully patented world first – winning The Land National Farm Inventor of the Year 1996 along with a swag of other awards. Followed by the Ezy Rip Chainsaw Attachment becoming The Land National Farm Inventor Runner Up  1997. Our Wire Needle barb wire handling tool came next with four awards including Queensland Country Life Farm Inventor of the Year 1999.

The Knockabout 6 in 1 Fencing Tool was soon to follow in 2001 winning The Land/Graincorp Farm Inventor of the Year – Queensland Country Life Farm Inventor of the Year and  The Society of Engineering in Agriculture Award of Excellence  - just to name a few.

From there we moved towards axe making as well and are proud to be keeping traditional axe making skills alive in Australia.

With everything we design , manufacture and sell we aim for a top quality Australian product built to last. We do as much as possible “in house” and have now expanded our operation to include a sawmill , axe handle manufacturing plant and leather workshop. We are proud of our products and stand behind them 100%.
