Chappell Tractor celebrated their 60th anniversary on September 26th by hosting a customer appreciation open house at their Milford, NH location. This event was open to the public and consisted of equipment demos, competitions for children and adults, free raffles, tractor pulls, helicopter rides, and more.

Dale White, president of Leighton A. White, said he only gives the best to his customers. In the case of his current workload, the best comes in the form of a Rototilt attachment, of which he has five. A hydraulic attachment/tool, which can be used on most excavators and backhoes between 3 and 30 tons (2.7 and 27 t), Rototilt combines side tilt, rotation and a hydraulic quick coupler in one package, allowing a bucket or other attachment to be rotated and tilted at the same time.

The company pulled out all the stops with plenty of family activities that included helicopter rides sponsored by Hyundai Construction Equipment, Bruster’s ice cream sponsored by New Holland Construction, Famous Dave’s BBQ sponsored by Kubota Tractor Corporation, a petting zoo, face painting, bouncy castles, equipment demonstrations and an obstacle course.

Kevin Sweeney, owner of Sweeney & Sons, Acton, MA, believes that land is like a canvas, “entrusted to us by our creator to demonstrate to the world that, through our collective effort, we can improve this small piece of land.
