Founded in 1980, AgriMetal has become a leading manufacturer of turf maintenance equipment.
In the early years, AgriMetal specialized in the manufacture of farm machinery but divested itself of this division in 2000 to concentrate solely on developing products for maintaining green spaces. Building dairy equipment for 15 years was a valuable lesson in durability that carried over into the manufacture of turf equipment. Dairy equipment must be designed to be used twice per day, 365 days per year.
AgriMetal’s first turf product, a straw blower for landscaping, was introduced in 1985. This product was innovative because the full bale of straw could be placed in the machine at once, resulting in considerable labor savings for the operator.
In 1987, the arrival of the 360 leaf blower revolutionized golf course maintenance. Belt drive technology reduced parts related breakdowns dramatically when compared to competitors models, and output performance was higher than most users had ever seen.
1989 brought the first Turf Sweeper/Vacuum, popular because the heavy duty construction made this an extremely durable machine. These units were so well built that many of the original machines are still in use today.
Aerification equipment was developed in the early 1990’s as well as leaf blower models to fit several manufacturer’s front mount mowers.
The new millennium brought products for maintaining golf course greens.
