Mud Buddy Manufacturing was
founded in 1994 by is president and manager, Glenn Foreman.
Mud Buddy is located in West Jordan, Utah near the shores of the Great Salt Lake, an inland body of water
that 10,000 years ago covered an area that spanned Utah and parts of
Idaho and Nevada. Today the lake, however much smaller, is still
the largest body of water in the western United States. It is
home to a large resident population of waterfowl and millions of
This inland waterway hosts hundreds of miles of shoreline dotted with marshes that
contain some of the best mud motor terrain in North America. Our high mountain lakes,
great rivers like the Green and
Snake, along with dozens of waterfowl enclosures, provide some of the
mud motor country anywhere. Mud motors were developed here over
40 years ago to tackle waist deep mud, thick mats of
boulder ridden streams, and log filled timber estuaries along river corridors. It is
here, where the world's finest high-tech mud motors
Today, Mud Buddy hosts a full component production facility
of motors, blinds and boating accessories. Mud
Buddy is well known around the world, and our products can be seen at
more than 200 marine outlets across North America.
Mud Buddy products are the
official hunting equipment of 8 state waterfowl associations.
Mud Buddy is also a contributor and supporter of Delta Waterfowl,
Ducks Unlimited, Waterfowl USA and numerous other wildlife organizations.
The company is best known for developing the
modern mud motor, the extended life mud motor patented bearing drive, patented
mud motor seal system, a swivel assembly that allows longtails to rotate
into the boat, computer designed frames, and a new generation of lightweight full
blinds. We were the first to experiment with surface drive
propellers in the mid 90s, long before the first short tails entered
the market. The list goes on. These innovations and
spearheading were so well received by a public waiting for something
better, others quickly followed Mud Buddy's lead and many strive
offer these fine features as well.
Mud Buddy's greatest achievement was
the design, engineering and manufacturing of the HyperDrive, the
world's most advanced mud motor that does it all.
Why we build the Mud Buddy so
strong and light.
The Great Salt Lake is four times saltier than the ocean, which
caused us to build a highly corrosion-resistant frame. And
because we travel so far between shoreline marshes, we were also
motivated to build the lightest and most powerful mud motors.

backwater motors, blinds, custom duck boats, and hunting boat
accessories featuring quality materials, superior components and leading
