John Deere demos new equipment

June 25, 2013 -  By

John Deere hosted a Coal Valley Rally last week in the Quad Cities area of Illinois and Iowa, and Darren Constantino, editor-in-chief of LM‘s sister publication Pit & Quarry, attended on behalf of North Coast Media. More than two dozen journalists attended the event, where they learned about the company’s new E-Series skid-steers and compact track loaders, and the 644K Hybrid wheel loader.

Activities included a tour of the John Deere Davenport Works in Davenport, Iowa, a visit to John Deere Pavilion in Moline, Ill., and various equipment demonstrations at the company’s Coal Valley, Ill., training facility. Journalists also had an opportunity to operate the equipment.
