Miller-Bradford & Risberg, the Case distributor, is hosting the First Annual MBR Case Challenge at its Negaunee facility located on 75 U.S. Highway 41, May 2.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and excavator operators will compete in two skill contests, using Case excavator models CX50B and CX210B.
Prizes will go to the top three winners.
Additionally, Case equipment will be displayed and demonstrated.
Beer, burgers, brats, soda and water will be sold; proceeds benefit the Pigs-N-Heat Fire Relief Fund, which aids Marquette County families who have suffered losses in a fire.
“We are very excited about our First Annual MBR Case Challenge,” said Mike Soley, Jr., president and CEO of Miller-Bradford & Risberg. “This event gives local equipment operators a chance to measure their skills against each other in a challenge using two top performing Case excavators.”
The first place operator wins a 37-in. LCD VIZIO high definition TV, while second and third places are awarded Gander Mountain gift cards for $250 and $100, respectively.
Equipment demonstrations will showcase Case equipment, including Series 3 skid steer loaders, E Series wheel loaders and M Series 2 backhoe loaders.
The Pigs-N-Heat Fire Relief Fund began in 1984 when a Marquette City police officer and firefighter joined a Michigan state trooper to raise money for a family who lost their home in a fire. The fund has distributed more than $300,000 to Marquette County families.
Miller-Bradford & Risberg has expanded to include eight branch locations throughout Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois.
Manufacturers represented by Miller-Bradford & Risberg include: Case, Kobelco, Bomag, Terex, Terex Fuchs, Sandvik, Blaw-Knox and other top brands.
