Westchester Tractor Inc. held an open house in Brewster, N.Y., on July 15 in celebration of 40 years in business.

Customers flocked to the headquarters of Westchester Tractor and were greeted by employees along with many manufacturer representatives, including those from Kobelco, Kubota, New Holland, Bandit, Vibroscreen, Woods Equipment Company and Terrain King.

Not only were manufacturers available to talk, but they also were demoing different types of equipment. Attendees were able to see a Kubota mini-excavator feed numerous models of Bandit chippers along with a Doosan DX350LC screening soil using a VibroScreen SCM-40C.

Throughout the day attendees were able to compete in the New Holland Skid Steer Rodeo, a highly competitive event with lots of contestants. The winner took home $500.
