Workshop: Basics of Tractor Safety, Operation, and Management

September 14, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

University of Vermont Extension is presenting this workshop on how to keep your tractor’s engine running smoothly and efficiently. This one day tractor course will provide you with the skills and hands-on experience to keep your tractor in tip top condition. You’ll get hands-on practice in checking and changing fluids and filters, servicing the battery, checking radiator hoses, grease fittings, and more in a small-group.
Instructor, Shane J. LaBrake, has over 25 years of experience as a farmer and a trainer. Instructor Eero Ruuttila is the Incubator Farm Coordinator for the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project in Lowell, MA and a Sustainable Agriculture Specialist for UConn Extension’s Scaling Up program for Beginning Farmers. Shane and Eero have taught together and have more than four decades of combined experience in safe tractor operation and maintenance.
This workshop is also being held on September 17 in Brattleboro, VT and on October 13 in Poultney, VT.
