Founded 1947

Hesston, Kansas, USA

Products agriculture machinery-swathers; formerly forage harvesters, tractors, skid loaders
Parent AGCO

In 1947, Lyle Yost founded Hesston Manufacturing Co. Hesston, Kansas, USA. The company specialized in farm equipment, including self-propelled windrowers and the StakHand hay harvester.

In 1977, Fiat purchased an interest in Hesston, and began importing Fiat tractors under the Hesston brand. Hay tools, self-propelled windrowers and skid-steer loaders were manufactured in Hesston, KS and sold in Europe and other parts of the world.

In 1991, the hay tools and skid-steer loader portion of the business was purchased by AGCO, and the tractors were discontinued. AGCO entered into a 50/50 joint venture with Case IH to produce hay tools, and renamed the Hesston facility Hay & Forage Industries. They produced Hesston and Case IH branded equipment at that time. In 2000, as part of the merger of Case IH with New Holland to form CNH Global, AGCO bought out Case IH in the joint venture.

AGCO has since moved the manufacturing of all AGCO combines and hay tools in North America to Hesston, so Gleaner, Challenger, Massey Ferguson and formerly New Idea combines and hay tools are all manufactured along-side Hesston-branded equipment.

Around 2010, AGCO has moved Hesston to be a sub-brand, with swathers and hay tools branded as Hesston by AGCO and malfunction Hesston, and in South America, Valtra Hesston and Agco-Allis Hesston.
