Brief History of Quick Manufacturing Inc. & Springfield

quick manufacturing springfield lawn springfield garden springfield equipment springfield history quick manufacturing history


Very nice article, thanks for sharing it!
We have spoke before about how sketchy the history of Quick Mfg is and the sleuthing effort you put in shows int the details you have managed to dig up
It's not published yet so nobody else can see it yet. Casey I am going to send you a pm before it gets published

You did a great job on the write up Casey. It is great learning about the history of our garden tractors and implements that we have come to know and love

Now I am really confused as to why I have a pair of these threads now lol. That and uh, your comment at the article matches your post here lol
Well when an article is created and published there is a thread that is created in the comments forum for the article. The thread that is created is used to hold all of the comments for the article. Basically you jumped the gun creating the other thread. I will merge the threads if I can find the other one LOL

Just added two updates to the history
Really enjoyed reading this, Casey. Thanks for sharing the history. Unfortunate that Quick MFG had to end the way it did

Ya Bill, I wish they could have survived but I think they were just too beaten down in legal crap to get out
hat's a great article Casey. Sorry it took me so long to get around to reading it. Nice work!

hanks Steve, I appreciate the comment. I spent 3 days writing the article and at least a week prior doing heavy research to add to what I already knew
May 19, 2011 12:01 PM
Awesome article! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for reading it Kate. I just wish I could find some time to update some of the little things in it that I have learned just in the last couple weeks. It amazes me how much we keep learning even after we think we know just about all there was about something
Jun 20, 2011 11:08 PM
Made some additions to the article in some places

Welcome to the forum 1farmboy, great score on the Farmcrest, post up a new thread with pictures of it when you get a chance, would love to see it. Thanks for taking an interest in my article, reminding me I have to go through it next month and revalidate all the information, and possibly add new findings
Case...what the .......is a Farmcrest????? scanning google images beginning
Nov 16, 2011 09:55 PM

A Farmcrest is a Springfield under a different branding. Same manufacturer, same design, same machine, different name
I have posted photos of my farmcrest
