Coleman Equipment presents machine ‘rodeo’

July 28, 2011

Coleman Equipment, 24000 W. 43rd St., will play host to a Triple Threat Rodeo from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, to benefit Heartland Habitat for Humanity.

Instead of roping calves or riding bulls, this rodeo involves operating a Case-brand loader/backhoe, a wheel loader and a skid steer. It pits about 75 of the area’s most talented heavy equipment operators against each other in a series of three skill-testing events. The public is invited to watch the rodeo, demonstrations of Case equipment and other activities.

During July and August, Coleman Equipment is collecting donations for Heartland Habitat for Humanity and will be presenting those donations, plus a donation from the dealership, during the rodeo awards ceremony.

Local equipment operators participating in the rodeo event are eligible to earn up to $500 in cash prizes, plus the winner also earns a trip for two to Las Vegas in 2012 to the Case North American Triple Threat Rodeo Series Finals.
