(L-R): Dwight and Luis Yoder and Jason Whitaker of Nortrax in front of the John Deere 803MH with Waratah 622B head.
Nearly 200 customers and guests attended the live equipment demonstration held on Oct. 7 at the Crandon International Off Road Raceway in Crandon, Wis. Loggers from around the upper Midwest were invited to watch John Deere harvesters, Feller bunchers, forwarders and skidders work in unison and watch operators show off their productivity and efficiency in the woods. Product seminars on topics such as machine optimization, bar and chain maintenance and head automation were offered and allowed loggers to obtain SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) credits.
Nortrax, John Deere forestry specialist and Morbark representatives were on hand to answer questions and provide in-depth machine walk-arounds and tours of the equipment. Lunch was served under a big tent in the woods. The Crandon International Off Road Raceway grounds provided the perfect setting for a live equipment demo on a beautiful autumn day.
