Scott Equipment plans Kubota Orange Days fest

Scott Equipment owner Bryan Scott knows people might have noticed the business clearing their lot, but it’s not a sign of trouble – it’s sign of a big event coming this weekend.

Scott Equipment will host a free event with a festival atmosphere May 12 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., coordinated with Kubota Tractor Corporation as part of Kubota Orange Days.

“We’re going to have some product demonstrations and some competitive models here to look at from other makes,” Scott said. There will also be giveaways, including four Orca coolers and an Echo handheld blower and trimmer (attendees do not have to be present to win). The first 100 children in attendance will receive a free toy, and everyone who registers for door prizes will receive a voucher for $200 toward certain Kubota products.

“We’ll also be having the Franklin County Cattlemen’s Association Young Cattlemen here to cook for us,” Scott added. Hamburgers and hotdogs are on the menu.

The event is the first of its kind for Scott Equipment, which has been operating in Franklin County since 1978, “It’s a cross between a product demonstration event and an open house. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a little while,” said Scott, who took the business over from his father in 2015. “It’s something we want to put on to do a customer appreciation type event.”

Scott worked in the business as a young person before taking over operations two years ago. He said he enjoys interacting with customers and local farmers and growers in community

The entire Kubota product line will be on display, from lawn and garden items up to CAD tractors. Event attendees will get the chance to try their own hand at driving or operating some of the machinery.

“We look forward to all of our old customers as well as hopefully new customers coming to see us,” Scott said.
