KANSAS CITY, MO — Aspen Equipment recently brought its custom-built mobile service truck and a Potain self-erecting crane to the Dozer Day Kansas City event at Truman Sports Complex. Children at the event had the opportunity to climb on board and operate the equipment. Dozer Day is an event where children get to sit in the driver’s seat and operate dozers, excavators, and other machinery while accompanied by a professional operator. Other equipment is also available for older kids to operate without in-cab guidance. Although it is primarily for fun, the experience can generate interest in machines and lead participants to pursue a career in heavy equipment operation and construction. “Dozer Days is fun for the kids and the whole family,” said Toni Johnson, Rental Operations Manager at Aspen Equipment. “This is a unique event designed to give kids an opportunity to get an actual hands-on construction industry heavy equipment experience, and perhaps spark a lifelong journey in the trades.” At the event, Aspen’s staff offered information about the company’s products and services, as well as free giveaways at their booth. All proceeds from Dozer Day benefit community and nonprofit organizations throughout the Kansas City area. Dozer Day is an event presented by NUCA Greater Kansas City.
