WoC Skills Challenge winner
07 May 2008
Pettibone named Jason Hershberger its Telehandler Skills Competition winner at January's World of Concrete show in Las Vegas. Herschberger, a second generation telehandler operator of Herschberger Steel Erectors located in Abbeville, SC walked away with a 2008 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob motorcycle.
The manufacturer sponsored this year's event, which drew 36 operators from across the country. Each competitor had their option to compete with a Pettibone Extendo Series 8044 or a Traverse Series T8044.
The competition consisted of several obstacles, such as moving planks from sawhorses and simulating pallets that were moved from high scaffolding. Winners were judged on pre-start checks, start up, operation, turning, accuracy, and safety.
Pettibone will sponsor the competition again next year, when WoC takes place in Las Vegas, February 2-6.
