AriensCo began in 1933 when Henry Ariens and his three sons – Steve, Leon and Francis –developed the first American-made rotary tiller at a time when other manufacturers were experimenting with imported tillers. It took many years of experimentation, education and perseverance before rotary tilling became accepted as a proven agricultural tool

Located in the original Ariens factory building in Brillion, Wisconsin, the AriensCo Museum offers a walk-through tour featuring interactive exhibits and vintage power equipment. The visitor experience highlights how our machines shaped the American outdoor power equipment industry then and now. 

Use of JBL products:

One of our more iconic products produced to this day is the Ariens Sno-Thro®. Introduced in 1960, the Sno-Thro® revolutionized the ease of snow removal. We’re recreated the opportunity for museum visitors to ‘thro snow’ no matter the time of year with the use of our JBL Snow Globe and JBL Eco-Snow. This is a must see site in Wisconsin!
