CHIPPEWA FALLS, WI (April 7, 2017) — Nortrax hosted their annual equipment demo and open house event on Friday, April 7th at the Chippewa Falls branch.
 
Beautiful spring weather brought out a huge crowd of customers to the event. This location has an excellent pit demo site which makes it possible for customers to actually demo equipment first-hand. Rodney Stallard, Nortrax General Manager, said approximately 500 people attended. “This year, customers were able to operate John Deere’s SmartGrade™ Dozers which have a grade-control system fully integrated into the machine cabin, structure and software, with no external masts or cable. We also had Excavators, Loaders, Compact Track Loaders, Motor Graders and an Articulated Dump Truck all available for our customers to use to play-in-the-dirt” said Stallard.
 
On hand to visit with customers and guests were Ken Knauf, Nortrax Forestry Specialist, John Deere Financial representative, Kevin St. John, Nortrax Environmental Health and Safety Manager, Jim Larsen, Nortrax Work Sight Solutions Consultant, Eric Brosted. And Product Support Technology Representative, Rob Newman. Nortrax would like to thank the following sponsors and supporting vendors that helped make the event a great success: TRM Manufacturing/GEM, Falls, Tow Master Trailers, Interstate Trailers, Decleene/Groeneveld, Paladin Attachments, and Pomp’s Tire.
 
A lunch of baked fish, charcoal chicken, homemade corn bread and all the fixings was served in the Nortrax service shop and catered by Karl Hartkemeyer, owner of Bar-B-Q Express Catering in Lake Hallie, WI.
 
Door prizes, giveaways and a trivia contest took place in the service bay area. Congratulations to J&A Construction and an employee from the Town of Wheaton for winning the premium Yeti cooler grand prizes.
