About Us

Welcome to Turfco.

Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Turfco Manufacturing has been a leader in turf maintenance for the golf, sports and lawn care industries since 1919. Being in the same industry for over 100 years is an achievement few family businesses can claim. From our grandfather who started National Mower Company in 1919, to the third generation Kinkead executives who run Turfco today, the Kinkead/Turfco ‘family’ acknowledges the privilege it is to be a part of the ever-changing commercial lawn care and landscape industry. 

Turfco built the first mechanized topdresser in 1961 and continues as the first choice of professional turf managers worldwide. Turfco listens closely to turf professionals, then designs and manufactures products that help do jobs more efficiently and effectively in topdressing, seeding, debris blowing, application and renovation. With years of in-field experience we know how to make your business more productive and profitable. We work with you, and deliver the equipment and services you need to be successful.
