One-of-a-Kind Skid Steer Auction Will Support FFA
Sep 12, 2012
What a win-win opportunity for farmers. There’s a live online auction right now for a one-of-a-kind Case Skid Steer hosted by Purple Wave, and when the auction closes on Sept. 30, the proceeds will go 89% to the National FFA Foundation, 10% to the winning bidder’s state FFA association and 1% to the winning bidder’s FFA chapter of choice.
Nicknamed “Red Power” the Case model SV250 up on the auction is a unique skid steer with: dual chrome exhaust stacks, custom eight-spoke-pattern wheels with chrome center caps and lugs, tinted cab windows and a custom red leather seat. Red LED lighting illuminates the skid steer’s undercarriage, the rear add-on counterweights, the operator compartment and the loader arm. The cab also features indirect LED lighting and LED spots in the air conditioning vents.
For more than 60 years, Case IH and its local dealers have supported the FFA, including their current sponsorship of the New Century Farmer and American FFA Degree programs.
