Subject: Forestry mower demo
On Thursday, November 1, 2012 from 8:30 to 3pm (approximately) local Isabella County company, Bandit Industries will be out at Deerfield Nature Park to demo a forestry mower. This is a $250,000 mower that will clear out some of the autumn olive (an invasive species-----) in the park, and as a bonus this will assist with the clearing required for an additional 18 holes being added to the already existing disc course that is in the park.
We (Isabella County Parks) have been working with the Mount Pleasant Disc Golf Club in building this course. They have been the creators, and instrumental in making this project happen, and now with the help of Bandit Industry we can work together to provide a day to observe what this Bandit mower can do, while benefitting the clearing of the course and this invasive species that needs to be cleared out at the park.
I hope you can send someone or some people out to observe and report on this if possible. I can be reached on my cell or at my office.
