Welcome to Kingsburg Cultivator

In the middle of the San Joaquin Valley in the late 1950’s Kingsburg Cultivator was established near the small rural town of Kingsburg CA. Agricultural equipment manufacturing and repair were at the heart of this small innovative company. One of the first inventions was an early version of their cane cutter used to trim vineyard canes.

Over the next 45 years their cane cutter line has grown to be one of the most advanced in the United States. KCI now produces 6 different series of cutter heads and many different mounting fixtures to adapt to your tractor and vineyard configuration. They use the newest design technologies in hydraulics and computer aided drafting (CAD) to construct all of their equipment.
