The first Kuhn-produced machines were distributed in North America in the 1960s. The initial sales were in the Northeast United States and Canada. As the Kuhn grew, sales expanded to other parts of the United States and Canada, where Kuhn pioneered markets and introduced new products such as disc mowers, disc mower conditioners, and rotary rakes that improved various farming techniques. Kuhn Farm Machinery, Inc., the Kuhn North American distribution company, was incorporated in the United States in 1976, in Vernon, New York, a small farming community in the heart of upstate New York. The facility occupies a 25,000 sq. ft building that underwent a major expansion and renovation in 1990.
In May of 2011, Kuhn purchased Krause Manufacturing Company, based in Hutchinson, Kansas. Designed to leave more residue on the soil surface to fight wind erosion, Henry Krause’s one-way plow was the first conservation tool. Krause’s neighbors saw the plow and were impressed with its value as a special tool for their own farming conditions, and asked Henry to build more.
In January 2008, Kuhn Farm Machinery and Kuhn Knight merged to form Kuhn North America, Inc. In March 2011, Kuhn acquired Krause Corporation, a North American leader in tillage equipment and grain drills. This new addition to the Kuhn group, named Kuhn Krause, adds a broad range of large-width Krause tillage and Krause seeding tools tailored to meet the needs of large-scale crop producers to Kuhn’s global offering.
Kuhn Krause makes many different models of tillage. The Kuhn Krause Dominator, Kuhn Krause Interceptor, Kuhn Krause Excelerator, Kuhn Krause Landsman, and the Kuhn Krause Landstar are great products in Kuhn’s tillage line. Call us today to find out the benefits of Kuhn Krause tillage.
