Austin Demo Day a Success

Austin Demo Day a Success
More than 80 customers attended Austin’s Demo Day event in mid-June. The event was centered on excavator products and featured several machines from the 26G up through the 350GLC. The John Deere 350GLC excavator was set up with Topcon machine control and allowed customers to experience operation with the system and dig trench with slope on grade.

In addition to giving customers the ability to move dirt, they also demoed the senseFly albris. John Otwall, RDOIC Account Manager, said the feedback on the drone was really positive. “The comments that stood out were those about the potential for drone technology in our industry, and also how stable the albris was, even in high winds. But people are most amazed at the applications and data after the flight is over.”

“This was a terrific day for our team,” commented Austin General Manager Cory Kosse. “It’s these types of opportunities that allow us to develop deeper relationships with our customers and demonstrate our total solutions philosophy. Thank you to the Austin team for putting together a top-notch event.”

The Running Deere Cooking team, made up of members of the Austin store, cooked a BBQ lunch at the event – and even booked their first ‘catering’ job! They’ll be cooking with their pit for Lane Construction in a few weeks.
