Area residents interested in the latest utility tractors, lawn and garden equipment, loaders and other equipment from John Deere are invited to stop by James River Equipment on Saturday, May 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. as it hosts its 2013 Drive Green Challenge event.
Event attendees will also qualify for a $500 discount on John Deere compact and utility tractors and a chance to win a John Deere 1 Series Sub-Compact Utility Tractor with loader and grooming mower. In addition, the Drive Green Challenge offers interested customers the chance to compare the latest equipment from John Deere and other companies.
Henry Hall, store manager at James River Equipment, said he is confident attendees will enjoy the chance to test drive different models of equipment.
“The best thing about this event is the fact that we put John Deere tractors side-by-side with competitive models so folks can see the differences for themselves. Even people who have been doing their comparison shopping online can come in, drive the machines and see how John Deere stacks up to the rest.”
Tractor experts from John Deere and James River Equipment will be on hand to answer questions about the equipment.
“The Drive Green events give customers a one-stop opportunity to size up different utility tractors so they can find out exactly what horsepower tractor will best fit their property and the jobs they want to accomplish,” Hall says.
