Driving A Long Way To Drive Green

Fresno EquipmentIt was a bright sunny day in Fresno, CA but the wind picked up. I was told that meant that many area farmers couldn’t be in their fields to spray crops so I think we had quite a few show up at Fresno Equipment.

However, local folks weren’t the only ones who attended. I spoke to Jerry Jaeckels who said he drove 5 hours to get here since he missed a closer event to where he lives. He just felt like the opportunity to see the new equipment, get a chance to drive the tractors and talk with John Deere representatives was too important to pass up. He’s interested in the new 5 series tractors and I’m sure that by the end of the day he got all the information he needed. He’s getting ready to start a horse arena on his property so one other item that caught his eye was the Riata Rake we had out in the ride and drive area.
