When the RDO Equipment Co. team put its John Deere lawn mowers in action to help out the Rapid City, South Dakota Parks & Recreation department, there was one big question: could the mowers handle this tall, thick grass that hadn’t yet been mowed this season?
With COVID-19 affecting the department’s ability to hire enough seasonal maintenance workers, the Mountain View – Mt. Calvary cemeteries were in need of basic maintenance. The RDO Equipment Co. team stepped in to help, donating their time and equipment including a John Deere zero turn mower, stand-up ZTR mower, and a front area mower. Watch to find out how these lawn mowers handled the thick, tall grass that hadn’t yet been mowed.
