MINOT, N.D. - From one equipment booth to the next you'll be sure to find your farming needs during the KMOT Ag Expo, but Meghan von Behren takes us inside one that might just be your one-stop shop
At the Acme booth the variety is incredible from things for the farmers, to tractors for the home owner. I'll take you inside to see why the everyday consumer loves the acme booth.
The first thing that draws your eye into the Acme booth is all of the bright orange Kubota equipment.
"Kubota is a Japanese company that is continuously looking to expand. So a few years ago they expanded to a higher horse power tractor. Around the same time they started making Ag equipment and now they are just continually going to expand,” said Taylor Brown, the Acme Regional Manager.
Newer to the ag world, Kubota is making a variety of tractors and machinery for farmers.
"We have our rakes. That is what we are really focusing on. We have got our Ag Rake. We have got our new rake that we are pushing this year. Then also our bailer that we have got,” said Brown.
What makes this booth unique is that it's not just farmers who can get what they are looking for.
"We honestly do get quite a few homeowners coming looking for the smaller utility tractors, a garden tractor. Then we do have our Milwaukee tools here, they bring in a lot of home owners, shop guys mechanics,” said Brown.
The customers say they like what they see.
"When they walk up and they find out what we offer and kind of our price tag and stuff. Where you don't have to necessarily pay as much as the competitors and you still get good quality, its good. They have a good reaction,” said Brown.
Offering the customers a great opportunity on many ag necessities in the Acme booth.
