To celebrate 40 years in the skid loader industry, Manitou Americas, Inc. and Gehl present a sweepstakes for one custom painted Gehl R190 skid loader. The skid loader is painted in maize (yellow) and blaze (red), the same color scheme as the first line of Gehl skid loaders in 1973.
Sweepstakes entries will be taken from January 2 through June 30, 2014 at all Gehl tradeshows and through an online entry form. One entry allowed per person during the sweepstakes period, regardless of entry method or location.
The winner of the Gehl Throwback R190 Skid Loader will be announced at the 2014 Wisconsin Farm Technology Days in Portage County. The winner will receive one Gehl R190 Skid Loader with the following: joystick controls, two-speed, enclosed cab with heat and air and a 70-inch bucket. The approximate retail value of the prize is $53,095.
The Gehl Throwback R190 Skid Loader will be on display at a variety of tradeshows in early 2014, including World of Concrete (Las Vegas; January 21-24); National Farm Machinery Show (Louisville, Ky.; February 12-15) and CONEXPO-CON/AGG (Las Vegas; March 4-8).
