In the middle of the San Joaquin Valley in the late 1950’s Kingsburg Cultivator was established near the small rural town of Kingsburg CA. Agricultural equipment manufacturing and repair were at the heart of this small innovative company. One of the first inventions was an early version of their cane cutter used to trim vineyard canes. Over the next 45 years their cane cutter line has grown to be one of the most advanced in the United States. KCI now produces 6 different series of cutter heads and many different mounting fixtures to adapt to your tractor and vineyard configuration. They use the newest design technologies in hydraulics and computer aided drafting (CAD) to construct all of their equipment.
In 1993 the company was purchased by Clint Erling President and in 1995 was joined by Allen Scheidt V-P and founder of Scheidt Enterprises in 1971. Together they have expanded KCI into many new equipment venues. The main lines of products are Vineyard, Orchard, Vegetable harvesters, and Custom designed equipment. Please feel free to contact Clint or Allen for any of your equipment needs, from our large standard selection or specially built to your specifications.
