Skid steer competitions

New Holland just announced the
introduction of its new 200 Series skid steer and compact track
loaders. There are seven skid steers and three tracked versions in
the line. According to the company, their designs are the result of
extensive customer feedback. So these machines should be everything
you’d ever ask for in a compact loader.

New Holland is so proud of them, it
thinks their introduction calls for something special. So they’re

holding a skills competition and offering $50,000 worth of prizes to
eligible contestants, including a L218 from the new line. So if you
have an operation that uses a skid steer loader and you have an
employee who regularly operates it, tell him to get some practice,
his skills could win you that new loader.

It’s all part of the New Holland Super
Boom Road Show, which will make 35 stops across the U.S. and Canada.
Winning one of those local challenges is the first step in getting to
the final event, where the major prizes will be awarded. Here are the
three scheduled locations in western Canada:

-May 7 at Moody’s Equipment in
Saskatoon, SK.

-May 14 at Moody’s Equipment in Balzac,

-June 17 at Camrose Farm Equipment in
Camrose, AB.

This is how the Road Show competition

works. Winners of each of the 35 local events will be flown to the
Green Industry Equipment Expo in Louisville, Kentucky, in October for
the final round in the competition. The winning operator of that
playoff gets a $5,000 prize, along with a few other things; and the
company he works for gets the new loader. There’ll be about $12,500
in additional prizes to other contestants, too. It sounds like nearly
everybody gets a little something.

you made out. Good luck.
