Eager to kick off GIE+EXPO, the Ariens and Gravely teams gathered this morning at Buffalo Trace Distillery amidst the rolling hills of Kentucky. With them came a group of industry media experts from across the country ready to demo the new Gravely Atlas Job Site Vehicle and share their thoughts.
"Smooth ride," "power," "like a cadillac on the highway" - were all words used to describe the multi-purpose job site vehicle.
Coming from a range of backgrounds - from landscape to construction to agriculture industries - these writers and editors took the driver seats in 6 Gravely Atlas machines, taking them up and down hills, towing more than 3,000 lbs., and putting them through a true test.
Ron Hall of Turf Magazine has been reporting on the industry for over 30 years and was nothing but impressed with the Atlas. Hear what Ron and others had to say about the JSV at today's media event - and maybe even top it off with a little Kentucky Bourbon.
