OLATHE, Kan. – With hundreds of Drive Green Challenge events planned for this year, consumers looking for John Deere utility tractors, attachments and implements, plus Gators and lawn and garden tools, will have more opportunity to see and test-drive the latest equipment.

They’ll also receive a special discount on John Deere equipment and a chance to win a John Deere 3E Series Compact Utility Tractor with loader and mower package, plus monthly cash vouchers valid at John Deere dealerships across the country.

John Deere dealers across the country are hosting Drive Green Challenge events from March through October. These events are designed to give property owners, farmers and ranchers, commercial lawn and landscape operators and interested consumers a chance to test-drive John Deere utility tractors, including John Deere 1 Family Sub-compacts, 3E Series and 5D/5E Series Tractors. Guests will have the opportunity to compare features of equipment and ask questions about the different models of tractors, attachments and implements.

The theme for this year’s Drive Green Challenge is See it. Drive it. Own it.” Local John Deere dealer experts will be on-hand at all events to demonstrate the equipment, answer questions and help customers find the right size and model of tractor and other tools that will best fit their property and the jobs they want to accomplish.

As an added incentive, people who attend this year’s Drive Green events will also have a chance to win a John Deere 3032E Compact Utility Tractor with D160 Loader and Frontier RC2060 Rotary Cutter.
