1951-1956

 

1951
The world´s first engine driven backpack mistblower (also on exhibit in the German Museum in Munich) was developed. The first 100 units achieved a breakthrough for this revolutionary method of plant protection. Instead of using stationary engine driven pumps with long spray hoses and lots of manpower, the new machines were able to be operated "solo", by only one person - the birth of our future trademark name.
1952
A German Press Agency report in leading German newspapers describes a demonstration of our engine powered backpack mistblower in the village of Neuweiler, situated in a wine growing area in southwest Germany. The machines were described as revolutionary in the field of plant protection. 1,600 misting machines were manufactured in shifts around the clock.
1953
The decision was made to become independent in production and manufacturing. After a search for a suitable location, the first two factory buildings, including a section for office and showroom, take shape in Maichingen.
1954
The good reputation of the new mistblowers crosses the borders and creates a demand abroad. More than 5,000 units are manufactured. More than half are exported.
1956
After the huge success of the portable mistblowers, requests were received for a lightweight power cultivator. First prototypes result in large orders. The first production model of an engine driven lawnmower is released to the market.
