Construction Equipment Guide

Minnesota Rural Water Association held its 4th Annual Operator Equipment Expo on Sept. 13, 2012 in Waconia, Minn., at the Carver County Fairgrounds. The changeup from a two-day event held in August to a one-day event held in September was a success, being the largest to date with more than 250 attendees.

The expo was a unique training opportunity in that attendees experienced live, hands-on demonstrations and equipment operation. From the backhoe and skid loader rodeos, provided by Ziegler CAT and Gary Carlson Equipment, to the multiple water and wastewater opportunities, there was something for everyone to see.

All day events included line tracing, sanitary sewer nozzles, pipe tapping contest, test-driving equipment, skid loader rodeo and backhoe skills contests. Many vendors also provided hands-on demonstrations at their booth locations with valves, pumps, meter testing, leak detection, aerators and more.

Attendees received a commemorative T-shirt and a picnic lunch was provided, as well as, door prizes donated by vendors and a flat screen TV donated by MRWA were given away.
