Farmers Have Opportunity to Win New Equipment

Content Tools

Do you still own the same Taylor-Way tiller you purchased from the local farm equipment dealer in 1960? How about the Pittsburgh mower you bought just 15 years ago?

Chances are, if you're still using any Taylor-Way/Pittsburgh implement that is over ten years old, you could be the winner of the search for the oldest functioning Taylor-Way/Pittsburgh implement in this country. And that means you could win a Taylor/Pittsburgh Series 27 Rotary Mower valued at $1,400. 'In honor of our 50th Anniversary, we're beginning a search for our oldest product still in use today,' says Al

Preslicka, general manager. 'But, we're not just searching for one winner. Of course, not everyone who enters will win the grand prize, but each and every person who responds to this search by February 28,1997 will receive a prize as our way of saying thanks.'

To enter the 50th Anniversary Search, send a photo of you and your Taylor-Way/Pittsburgh product, along with a short summary of when and where the product was purchased, what acreage the implement services and any additional comments about the quality or dependability of the product to: Taylor/Pittsburgh Search, 7 Rocky Mount Road, Athens, Tennessee 37371-0769; or visit your local Taylor/Pittsburgh dealer for complete details and an entry form.

Taylor implement was established in 1946, and named after one of its founders, J. H. Taylor, who was also the first president and design engineer. Some of the first implements manufactured at the Athens plant were a wheel type subsoiler, bush and bog harrow, disc harrow, disc tiller and disc plow. In 1978, the company joined forces with Pittsburgh Forgings Company, and began operating under the name of Taylor/Pittsburgh. Currently, Taylor/Pittsburgh supports 100 employees in the small town of Athens, Tennessee, and is owned by TIC United in Dallas, Texas.

Throughout the last 50 years, Taylor/Pittsburgh has furnished equipment for such major brands as Ford and Massey-Ferguson. The company also manufactures and markets Taylor-Way and Pittsburgh products that sell direct to farm equipment dealers throughout the country.
