Company Wrench held JCB Equipment Demo Day at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio, on Feb. 28. The event attracted construction contractors, municipal maintenance employees and landscape contractors from around the Columbus metro and surrounding areas.
As a guard against Ohio's unpredictable winter weather, the demonstration area was set up indoors within the Ohio Expo Center's Cooper Arena. JCB equipment available for demonstrations were a 1CXT backhoe loader; a 48Z-1 mini-excavator; a 407 wheel loader; a 2TS-7T teleskid compact track loader; and a 3TS-8T teleskid compact track loader. Attendees were welcomed to compete in a timed skill challenge operating the JCB 48Z-1 mini-excavator with the winning contestant being awarded a cash prize of $2,500.00
In addition to the machines available for demonstrations, there was a JCB 505-20 tool carrier in an indoor static display and attendees were greeted outdoors by a JCB 457 wheel loader and a JCB 220X LC excavator on show outdoors at the entrance of the arena.
Along with personnel from Company Wrench available to greet and speak with attendees, several JCB factory representatives were on hand at the show, ready to provide details on the machines in one-on-one conversations. Attendees also were given door prizes and a hearty lunch at the event, which ran from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
