Each year at World of Concrete, John Deere challenges operators to use familiar equipment in unusual ways. In 2015, participants tried to:

  • Score a goal using skid steer to shoot a soccer ball into a net (Photo 1)
  • Catch a tennis ball with an excavator and drop it in a basket (Photo 2)
  • Dunk a basketball using a front loader, with one tire up on a ramp
  • Run a slalom course in a skid steer or front loader (forward and backward!) (Photo 3)
