Based on the popularity and success of its events held in Columbus, Ohio, during the month of August, Murphy Tractor & Equipment recently held open house equipment demonstration events at its Cranberry Township, Pa., location. The four open house sessions, consisting of two half day events daily were held on Oct. 7 and 8.

Each session included presentations by John Deere factory representatives, demonstrations of John Deere’s latest equipment and an opportunity for attendees to man the controls and try out the machines for themselves.

According to Sean Riley, Cranberry Township branch manager, the company’s growth depends on the company being better tomorrow than they are today. He added that the best avenue to get there is through feedback from its customers.

Mark Wall, John Deere product marketing manager — excavators, presented a short film on John Deere’s history of more than 175 years along with a slide presentation and discussion about the company’s vision and corporate strategy for future growth.

Murphy Tractor & Equipment Company’s Jason Welch teamed up with John Deere Technology Field Consultant Jon Sarrazin to talk about John Deere worksite solutions, including JDLink, a machine monitoring system designed to help contractors improve productivity, project data reporting and job site safety and security.

John Deere’s Mark Colvin spoke about John Deere’s interim Tier IV experiences and building block approach toward compliance as well as its plans for addressing final Tier IV emissions requirements.

Both John Deere and Murphy Tractor representatives were on hand after the equipment presentations to answer questions and discuss specific equipment features in machine walk-arounds. Attendees were then invited to try out the equipment in a large demonstration area where they could get a feel for each machine’s capabilities.
