Dawn Equipment Company is an U.S.-American corporation founded in 1992, and based in Sycamore, Illinois, where the company's factory and administrative center is. Dawn is a manufacturer of tools for row crop planters, as well as fertilizer openers and strip-till systems.

As of 2009, Dawn Equipment Company supplies more than 2,000 dealerships in several countries, including the United States, Australia, Canada, and France. Dawn's corporate color is navy blue, typically set on a white backdrop.


Dawn's original product line was limited to "screw-adjust" row cleaners. As the company has grown, so has its product offerings. As of 2011, Dawn holds a number of patents[1] and manufactures several varieties of agricultural products including: Trashwheels row cleaners, Curvetine closing wheels, row unit mounted coulters, the Gfx hydraulic trailing-arm floating row cleaner, the Rfx planter row unit down-pressure system, the 3004/3005 fertilizer opener, the Anhydra Universal fertilizer applicator, and the Pluribus strip-till system.

All Dawn products are manufactured in the United States of America, and raw materials are sourced through American companies. All Dawn equipment is powder coated black, and can be recognized by the unique screw-adjust handle which regulates height on most varieties of trashwheels row cleaners.
