After the show, attendees were able to go out into the yard to test the machines and talk with factory representatives about features and benefits.

Officer Pascale of the town of Marlborough Police Dept. came in to summarize the newest DOT Laws. Following was a talk about the NJPA (National Joint Powers Alliance), which was discussed by Mark Pattaleske and Dave Koch of Hoffman Equipment.
