The Bestway brand has built a reputation on quality and simplicity. Quality means solid construction, simple operations, and uncomplicated easy maintenance. Spraying should be easy. No matter what electronic magic or fancy features you like, the foundation of successful application is basic, solid equipment. As you research your choices for spray equipment, please give Bestway a close, hard look. Sprayers are not a sideline for us. It is our mission to build the best and ultimately improve your productivity.
In the early 1960’s Ed Schick of Clear Lake, Iowa, founded the Bestway Sprayer Co. He thought farmers needed a better sprayer. One that would hold up. He had a reputation for well-built, basic equipment. His prices were a little higher, but a growing number of customers recognized the value.
Later, in 1987 Ed sold Bestway to Cliff Wilson, owner of Ritchie Industries. Both men swore a solemn oath that the principles for which Bestway was built would not be changed. For that reason, when RHS purchased Bestway in 1995, Cliff passed on the mandate Ed had given to him. We take that commitment seriously.
