    Kewanee No.36

    Picked up a rear blade today. Was considering a new King Kutter for $300, but this one looked to be a lot heavier duty. Now to clean it up a little.

    I've never heard of that brand...but thats not unusual for me. It does look to be heavy duty and probably imatch compatible too.I'd take that over a King Kutter too. (and I have several King Kutter/ County Line implements) Good find!

    Mostly snow removal, but I will use it to grade the drive and do a little leveling in my yard.

    I believe they were made in Kewanee Il. That is about a half hour from me. They have gone out of business. There is a lot of Kewanee equipment in the area still in use. Looks to be in like new shape.

    Kewanee augers is what I remember from my farm days many many decades ago. They were very popular.

    We had several Kewanee disks. Once equipment started getting larger (our largest Kewanee disk was 17') they were simply not built strong enough for the task. The smaller disks were fine.

    They made lots of smaller implements like blades, augers, etc.

    Wow, that was a long time ago...

    I sure would like to see it hooked up and in action. I'm glad you found this brand...and everyone pitching in info about the brand. Learn something everyday. Was this brand sort of a regional sales or nationwide? Anyone know?


    Found this under kewanee implement history:

    "Agriculture and Kewanee Machinery and Conveyor

    Obviously a city that calls itself the “Hog Capital of the World” should have a strong connection to agriculture and indeed Kewanee does have close ties to the farming community.

    Over the years several local industries manufactured products for farm use, but the one that carried the label of “Kewanee” on its machinery was Kewanee Machinery and Conveyor, as you can see on the mural.

    The company was founded in 1912 by Wallace Glidden and B.F. Baker, Kewanee Boiler vice president, under the name Kewanee Corn Hanger. After another name change, it became Kewanee Machinery and Conveyor in 1930.

    Over the years the company manufactured corn hangers, grain elevators, truck and wagon lifts and wheel-mounted disk harrows, the latter called the “most talked of implement in the industry” in the 1950s and years later.

    After Wallace Glidden died in 1920, his brother Ray headed the company, and Ray’s son Robert took over in 1951 serving until it was sold in 1972. The company continued in Kewanee under other names until 1994. Even though the “Kewanee” brand ceased to be produced at that time, the name “Kewanee” can still be seen in farm fields throughout the Midwest. "

    I'm guessing it was more or less regional since it says throughout the "midwest"
