More than 30 dealers attended Paladin Attachments’ Training Day, which was held at Wisconsin County Fairgrounds in West Bend, Wis., on June 26.

This was the first state wide dealer training event held and was a huge success. Product and features were covered on more than 25 attachments, lunch was provided and product demos were covered after lunch. Dealer representatives had to operate four attachments which enrolled them into the door prizes at the end of the event, such as a Weber grill, golf bag, Baitcaster fishing combo and a 32 in. flatscreen TV. In addition, dealers had the opportunity to purchase discounted products on the day of the event.

Among the attachments demonstrated was the Bradco 72 in. (183 cm) standard duty ground shark with pressure gauge and front caster wheels. Dealers got to see the first unit in the state of Wisconsin.

Service Motors, Swirderski Equipment, First Choice Rentals, Milwaukee Tractor, FABCO CAT, M&D Truck and Equipment, Martin Brothers Implement, YES-JCB, Milwaukee, and Brooks Tractor all participated in the Wisconsin dealer training program.
