The Boise, ID Touch-a-Truck event was once again a huge hit. This annual event provided a hands-on opportunity for children of all ages to interact with and explore working trucks of all makes and models. Vehicles on display ranged from construction equipment to vintage trucks and emergency vehicles.
Western States was represented at the event by a 420F2 Backhoe and a 236D Skid Steer. These two machines gave kids an opportunity to creatively explore and learn about the purpose each machine serves. Many at Western States enjoy giving back to kids, and if the smiles on everyone’s faces were any indication, being around large equipment brought out the kid in both young and old.
