Stephenson Equipment hosted JCB’s Demo Day on Oct. 1 at its facility in Ephrata, Pa. A complimentary barbecue lunch was served, and the dealership awarded numerous prizes to those in attendance, including a free one-month rental of a skid steer. Dubbed “The World’s Safest Skid Steer,” the machine features a one-armed “PowerBoom” design that allows operators to conveniently enter and exit the machine through a side door.

In addition to testing out various types of JCB equipment, attendees were able to speak with the Stephenson team and JCB’s product specialists. JCB’s 86C compact excavator, 526 compact telescopic handler and the new entry-level 3CX backhoe were the newest machines available at the event. Available with a standard five-year warranty, the new 3CX boasts a rugged design that can reliably handle a multitude of tasks around any work site. Stephenson Equipment also had a wide selection of other JCB machines on hand for customers to see, operate and purchase, including other telescopic handler, backhoe and compact excavator models; skid steers, attachments and wheel loaders.

“We’re very pleased to debut these innovative JCB machines to professionals in this area of Pennsylvania,” said Todd Herrman, marketing manager of Stephenson Equipment.
