These rugged machines are built for more productivity and durability for customers. The new E-Series skid steers were shown during both events. New and improved design features of these machines include 25 percent more foot room, connect-under-pressure auxiliary couplers, lower cab noise levels and much more.

Murphy Tractor & Equipment Co. Inc. hosted two equipment demonstrations on June 12th (Topeka, Kan.) and June 14th (Miltonvale, Kan.). These events were designed for customers to get in the seat and operate John Deere machines.

“Both days had a great turnout and consisted of a ride and drive, lunch and much more. The Miltonvale event was in conjunction with the Kansas Land Improvement Contractors Association (KLICA) Summer Meeting,” said Mike Curry, branch manager. “Two operators from the John Deere Training Center, Merlin Hermsen and Marvin Epperly, attended and demonstrated multiple pieces of machinery. We also showed the Kleemann MR110Z impact crusher with great success.”

Kleemann impact crushers are well-suited for a variety of customer needs, including: processing natural stone, asphalt and demolition waste.
