About Smith Turf Company
Smith Power Equipment is a dynamic and progressive importation and distribution company with a strong focus on brand development. Smith holds a portfolio of 11 world leading brands which are competitively taken to market with a comprehensive dealer network on a national scale.

Smith Turf Equipment was established in 1991 when the company bought the distribution rights in Southern Africa for The Toro Company of Minneapolis (USA). The Toro Company is the world-wide market leader in the supply of golf course maintenance machinery and irrigation and has been represented in Southern Africa since 1972.
Toro entered its core golf business in 1920 when five reel mowers were attached to a Toro tractor to cut the fairways at The Minikahda Club in Minneapolis. Today, Toro holds the top position in nearly every product category in which it competes. Our high-quality products, exemplary service and support through our distribution channel, and a legacy of trusting relationships industry wide – has combined to make Toro the global leader of innovative turf maintenance equipment and irrigation technologies for the golf market. Our products are used to maintain a vast number of public, private, municipal, and resort golf courses – including many of the world’s top golf venues.
