We're still in Oklahoma building planters and harvesters as we've been doing for 50 plus years. This is a unique business and we understand there is a short time window for planting and harvesting Bermuda grass. Should you need parts during planting season, you need them quickly.
Bermuda King was born in the late 1950’s in Willard Duffy’s barn near Okarche, Oklahoma. Willard was working for the Okarche Grass Company and needed an automatic grass-sprigging machine. At that time, the only spriggers (planters) available were hand-fed and did not operate smoothly. Willard got busy and designed the first machine that automatically planted sprigs. A neighbor saw the machine and wanted to buy it. Willard sold it to him then built another; and sold it. A business was born.
