Servis was incorporated
on December 18, 1930 in Texas as Servis Equipment Company, a wholly owned subsidiary
corporation of Austin Bridge Company. Servis was organized to maintain equipment
for the Austin construction companies and gradually started designing and manufacturing
construction equipment such as rollers, packers, and road graders from the middle
to late thirties. The first semi-mount, hand-adjustable road grader blade was produced
During World War II, Servis began making magnesium incendiary bombs. Part of the
plant burned on December 15, 1943, stopping production until January 1944. Production
was ceased on August 14, 1945.
Production of farm equipment began in late 1945. In 1947 Servis produced the first
tractor-mounted, rotary stalk shredder. The shredder was mounted on the front of
the tractor and allowed the farmer to shred and plow in one pass through the field.
The first pull-type mower/shredder was produced in 1948.
Other products included the "Whirlwind Terracer", Gyro 84 in 1953 (still in production
today), Lone Star blade, box scrapers, and the Gyro 140 in 1959. The Lone Star blade,
and later the Little Rhino blade, were the first tractor rear mounted blades having
mainframe swing, moldboard pivot, and moldboard tilt adjustment capabilities built
Today Rhino products are sold throughout the world and are well respected for their
dependability and performance. The product line includes rotary and flail mowers
and cutters, rear blades, post hole diggers, pasture renovators, tillers, disc mowers,
and box blades.

The EarthMaster product line features powerful, effective tillage
equipment for tillage-minded farmers. It all started with the EarthMaster V-Rippers,
designed to bring new life to old soil in one pass. Then we developed the Dyna-Drive,
our ground-driven, rotary, surface cultivator for seedbed preparation. We have added Verti-Go
to our lineup to meet your vertical tillage needs. Our focus is on tillage, and our goal is
to find new ways for farmers to maximize yield through proper soil management.
