    How bout those Tri - state Mulch girls........

    Also, I suddenly have the urge to buy a bobcat....wonder if those hot red leather pants are included in the price?

    Got to love the "hired guns" these guys bring to the shows!

    The SIMA booth had a direct line of site to the Mulch Girls, so I'm sure that made it more bearable for the guys manning it. Steve, I talked to the guy that sold you the Dingo, but I had gotten there late & he figured you were probably gone already.

    Those Powerco girls had a line around the row waiting for signatures. The mulch girls had them beat hands down IMO.
    Besides, as BRL said, the mulch girls were diagonally across from us! The Powerco girls were sitting down most of the time, behind a table. The mulch girls on the other hand.... didn't have any chairs.

    All in all a great show. Tons of equipment, and a great interest in SIMA. The new SIMA booth catches the eye, and having the Basic Plowing Techniques video playing, had even more people stopping to learn about SIMA. Even a few "wives of plowers" stopped by to look at the video, and grab some SIMA info.

    the mulch girls were #1 they were very good sales
    reps. I don't think that every one was into the mulch but the girls... I was looking at that video pretty good.
    I am gona join very soon. lots of good stuff
    there. It was more like a skid steer battle.
    who's is bigger and better.

    Certainly worth the trip to the show.....lots of equipment on display..good networking oppurtunity and of course there were the wife was one of those looking at the SIMA booth....thought learning to plow might be better done (at least basically) from a vdieo than from spending hours in the truck with in all a very worthy trip with lots of good info and sources for plants and equipment..also since my wife was there I think I am now suffering from whiplash as I tried to catch the girls as they/we walked
