A Week at CONEXPO - CON/AGG with RDO Equipment Co.

From the desert southwest to the Pacific northwest, from the Dakotas to the Lone Star State and everywhere in between, team members from RDO Equipment Co., RDO Integrated Controls, and RDO Vermeer gathered this week in Las Vegas for CONEXPO – CON/AGG.

Every day, we brought a quick, three-point recap from our manufacturing partners John Deere, Topcon, and Vermeer. In case you missed any, catch up on all recaps below. Plus, see our team’s tweets and watch a special live video, straight from the floor at CONEXPO – CON/AGG.

Day 1 – John Deere
The Big News: John Deere unveiled its Machine Monitoring Center, featuring interactive and expert-supported areas throughout the booth.

Our Key Takeaway: RDO Equipment Co. is already supporting machines through partnership with John Deere, and with our new telematics solution, will be able to offer even greater opportunities to customers.

Best Photo: While every company debuted its latest-and-greatest machines, John Deere showed off a 50-year-old, restored JD570 motor grader.

Day 2 – Topcon
The Big News: Topcon announced seven new solutions, including the ZPS system for concrete paving and 10-inch GX-75 display.

Our Key Takeaway: The ZPS system is designed for highly accurate paving and less setup time compared to traditional methods, something we look forward to helping our customers implement into their businesses.

Best Photo: With the RDO Integrated Controls team’s heavy focus on UAV technology, it’s no shock the interactive Drone Cage was our favorite.

Day 3 – Vermeer
For our final daily recap, here’s Day 3 and 3 highlights from Vermeer, booth C32627.

The Big News: Vermeer revealed the newest addition to the Horizontal Grinder lineup: The HG6800TX.

Our Key Takeaway: While great news for those doing land-clearing work, we’re especially excited for the benefits the HG6800TX will bring to our customers in the recycling and compost industries.

Best Photo: Our customer, A Plus Tree, Inc., and Vermeer President and CEO, Jason Andringa, together in front of the new HG6800TX - talk about a trifecta.

Facebook Live
