Company

History
The Toro Company has a pioneering spirit. The company began as Toro Motor Co., an engine supplier for Bull Tractor Co., and survived the tumultuous years of World War I by building steam engines to support the war effort. Toro shifted gears in 1920, changing its name to Toro Manufacturing Co. and refocusing on farming equipment.

In 1921, Toro created the first mechanical golf course maintenance equipment by mounting five lawn mowers behind a Toro tractor to mow the fairways at Minikahda Country Club in Minnesota. As the company expanded further, it established a network of distributors that still exists today. These distributors enhance the professionalism and knowledge associated with the Toro brand.

Toro entered the international marketplace in 1928, shipping golf course and grounds maintenance products worldwide. Throughout the 1900s, Toro developed innovative products to serve homeowners and professionals alike, a growth that continues in the new millennium.
