mcculloch history

The history of McCulloch.

The history of McCulloch spans over 70 years. In 1943, business man Robert McCulloch founded a company called McCulloch Motors Corporation. After a few years the company moved from Wisconsin to California, where McCulloch Motors produced its first chainsaw, a two-man model named 5-49.

In 1949, McCulloch revolutionized the chainsaw industry by introducing a light one-man chain saw called 3-25. North American woodworking would never be the same again.

A complete garden range.

In the 1970s and 80s, McCulloch added hedge trimmers, string trimmers, and leaf blowers to its product range. The company was now clearly focused on garden equipment.

McCulloch moved to Tucson, Arizona in 1988, opening new corporate headquarters and a distribution facility. Among the product innovations that followed were electric string trimmers in 1998.

In 1999 McCulloch sold its European division to Husqvarna AB. Nine years later, Husqvarna also acquired the rights to the McCulloch brand on the North American market. Since then, McCulloch is a brand within the Husqvarna Group.

Today, McCulloch offers a complete line of garden products: powerful chainsaws, sturdy trimmers, lawnmowers, garden tractors and hedge trimmers. Each one provides you with all the power you need to get it done.
