Shane Bills of BMEI won the excavator challenge, which involved moving “pins” among safety cones. Jace Nix of GT Nix Construction took the top prize in the wheel loader category where competitors navigated an obstacle course and moved pieces of rebar. “This is a fun event, in addition to a chance to show contractors a sampling of the equipment and comprehensive support KEC backs it with,” said President John Pfisterer. “We hope by the time they leave here, they will see us as a total solutions provider.” KEC personnel were stationed near each machine to answer questions and show attendees the features and benefits of the equipment. Manufacturer and other vendor representatives were on-hand to discuss their products, including BOMAG Territory Manager Bill Stalzer. Rob Morrow, Mountain Regional Equipment Continued . . .
