In the 1950's Ashland started to manufacture pull type Agriculture Earthmoving scrapers. Most of these machines were smaller scrapers and land planes.
Hydraulic ejection was developed in the early 70s and became known at Ashland as the I-Series.
June 1st, 1998 Magnuson & Bernie Hnath passed their legacy down and sold to a new group of innovators. Randy Rust, Jack Martinsen, Hank Martinsen, and Carol Lindsey.
While new markets were being established, a fresh line of direct mount scrapers were being built. Ashland was soon recognized as the face of modern agriculture scrapers. Made with superior traction, for higher horsepower tractors, and 1/3 of the cost.
Ashland continued to listen to it's customers to improve on existing machines and releasing new products.
Many of the scraper models received brand new paint schemes and new line of carry-all dump scrapers was released.
Ashland Industries and K-Tec Earthmovers Inc. merged to become the global leader in the pull pan earthmoving scraper market.
