Mac Pautz of Pautz Concrete, Webster, Minn., and a longtime Tri-State Bobcat customer, gets the company’s S185 serviced at the Burnsville open house.
Tri-State Bobcat held two events, the first was an open house at its Burnsville, Minn., location and the second was to mark the company's grand opening in its new Hudson, Wis., location.
The Burnsville open house took place April 22 and featured equipment displays from various manufacturers, including Finn, Wacker Neuson, Bobcat, Bandit and many more. Guests also enjoyed a free barbecue lunch, door prizes and giveaways and a one-day special sale.
Tri-State Bobcat in Hudson, Wis., hosted a well-attended grand opening event on April 29 to 30 to celebrate its move to a much larger, completely remodeled facility. In addition to the Bobcat brand, Tri-State is an authorized dealer of Toro, Stihl, Bandit, Avant, Wacker Neuson and Finn.
Pastries and coffee were served in the morning and a free barbecue lunch was served. Attendees registered for a wide variety of door prizes and received many giveaway items. Employees and factory representatives were on hand to showcase Tri-State Bobcat's huge inventory of new equipment and demonstrate equipment operation and uses. Also on hand were artists of Cape Cod Chainsaw Art and Kathy Hemen won the drawing for one of their pieces.
Grand prize drawing winners were Ron King, who won a Toro lawn mower, Clifford Lund, who won a Stihl trimmer and Hank VanDyke, who won a Weber grill. Walter Nechville, Rudy Jungwirth, Scott Sucket, Doug Matejcek and Jeff Bork each won a $500 gift certificate toward an attachment purchase. In addition, other attendees won Amazon and Gander Mountain gift cards and Minnesota United soccer tickets.
Owners Bill and Jon Quirk want to thank all who attended the grand opening, extend an appreciation for all their business and wish everyone a great Spring and Summer.
The company has been in operation since 1983 and has two other locations in Burnsville and Little Canada, Minn.
