Ryan Ruhl (L), John Deere product consultant, gives some insight on the Deere 320E skid steer to John Keefe, sales professional of RDO Equipment Co.’s Rochester, Minn., branch.
RDO Equipment Co. hosted an event for its customers Jan. 26 to 27, 2016 at the John Deere Proving Grounds in Sacaton, Ariz. Nearly 425 customers representing 200 Midwest and Southwest companies attended.
Representatives of John Deere were on hand to demonstrate the full line of Deere construction equipment. The event also featured product displays from Topcon Positioning Systems and Sensefly.
In addition to plenty of hands-on time with John Deere dozers, scrapers, loaders and more, the afternoon featured in-depth workshops focused on topics such as UAV applications, laser scanning, mobile mapping and Topcon Magnet software.
Dan Baxter, superintendent of Shimmick Construction Company Inc. of Irvine, Calif., noted his goal for the event was to learn more about Topcon technology.
“What we have experienced recently while renting equipment from RDO Equipment Co. and now through this event in Arizona, has opened our eyes to more possibilities,” he said.
