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. The Ariens family conducted educational programs to teach commercial growers, nurserymen and landscapers how the new Ariens Model A Tiller, powered with an air-cooled engine, "plows as it discs as it harrows."
Many commercial tiller models followed, all aimed at improving output for vegetable growers around the country. AriensCo introduced the more compact Model B Tiller, the Roller-Tiller, the Multi-Tiller Tractor Tiller, the Jitterbug single-row front rotary tiller and the Tillivator RC for celery growers in Florida.
In 2010, Ariens acquired Countax & Westwood, a British company located outside Oxford that have been manufacturing high quality lawn tractors for the last 30 years. The company designs Countax & Westwood lawn tractors & products to specifically cope with the unique conditions of the British climate. Electronic controls are fully weatherproofed, while painted components have surpassed 500 hours of continuous salt spray exposure without corrosion – one of the most stringent tests available.
