EUREKA PLANTER COMPANY

Manufacturer of lawn mowers, farming equipment and associated items based in Woodstock, Ontaria, Canada. The company was founded in 1904 and was making mowers at least as early as 1907. Models made under the Eureka name include "Speedy", "Special", "Singer" and "Forest Glen". The company produced its first powered lawn mower (which weighed 111 lbs) in 1947. This was followed by an improved model in 1948 called "The Canadian Clipper". Production of mowers appears to have stopped around 1953 when the company changed its name and switched to other industrial products. After subsequent changes in ownership and name, the descendent business closed its manufacturing at Woodstock in 2005. The company has no connection with the Eureka Mower Company of Utica, New York, USA.
