AMCO Manufacturing, Inc., has been making tough tillage tools since 1947. Based in Yazoo City, Mississippi, AMCO farming tools are hard at work around the country shaping land, preparing seedbeds, and building agricultural water management solutions.
AMCO makes farm and construction industry equipment that gives our customers years of dependable performance, including tools for fertilizer application and water management, as well as bedding hippers and toolbars, disc harrows, lift harrows, wheel offset harrows, pivot/tile plows, levee plows, terracing plows, border plows, water furrow plows, ditchers, and rippers.
As an innovative leader in our field, we work to pioneer new products to serve the diverse needs of our customers. Past innovations have included AMCO’s development of agricultural anti-friction bearings, especially our triple-lip sealed and regreasable ball bearings and the Protect-O-Shield® bearing assembly, which allowed AMCO to be the first to offer a two-year warranty on this type of bearing system. With our rugged, high-quality products and exceptional service, you can count on us to manufacture your tillage and water management implements.
AMCO began expanding its sales territories and product lines after the company changed ownership in the early 1950s. With AMCO’s development of agricultural anti-friction bearings, especially our triple-lip sealed and regreasable ball bearings, the company became known as a pioneer in farm equipment innovation. It also premiered the Protect-O-Shield® bearing assembly, which allowed the company to be the first to offer a two-year warranty on this type of bearing system.
In 1963 AMCO moved to Yazoo City, Mississippi, where it continued to develop innovative tillage equipment. Today, the company is owned by Illinois-based Yetter Manufacturing Company, and the partnership between these two industry leaders has contributed to increased focus on developing new products to serve the diverse needs of our customers with tough tillage tools.
