Unloading for the exhibit
Telehandlers and skid-steer loaders are popular items when exhibitors arrive with material that has to be picked up after being trucked to the side.
Sneak peek at new names
The Textron Off-Road brand now spreads to familiar Arctic Cat utility vehicles with a new name. The company was prepping a ride-and drive area in its booth.
Ready or not
The show starts Tuesday, but mid-morning the day before the South Varied Industries Tent was still awaiting the arrival of many exhibitors.
Getting into the action
Exhibitors have to set up their own display, which sometimes means spending quality time with the product. These guys from Grammar were getting it done.
Big machines, big help
The Farm Progress Show provides big rigs for exhibitors, which this company sure needed for its specialized tools.
Under the products on display, to keep them looking good, there are all kinds of frames and other tools. For this display, which will hold tires, the frames look interesting even without product.
All ranges of exhibits rely on ladders for off-the-ground work. As exhibitors go "up" with display designs this gets more important.
At one exhibit, a drone tower is waiting for demonstrations of the flying machines and their software.
A big blast
Pressure washers are a common site on the Farm Progress Show lot, as manufacturers like to see clean machines (as do their customers).
Go for shine
Shiny tires are all over the show site. We highlight just one, ready to catch your attention.
Wrapping up setup sometimes means dipping into the tool box to finish the finer parts of a machine.
You missed a spot
This diligent worker was putting a finish polish on a machine in in his exhibit.
We're being somewhat ironic here, but when you load up the show aisles with trucks and trailers it's tough to get through. All those vehicles have to be gone before gates open.
Ready for a closeup
The stage in the Prairie Farmer Hospitality Tent is used for special staff and guest speaker events. And This Week in Agribusiness will be taping a show from the stage too.
Antique Row is a popular stop at the Farm Progress Show, while you see a Minneapolis Moline machine here, there are many brands on hand.
One exhibit has a vintage car on display, you'll have to stop by to get the story.
