Apple Farm Service to host Manitou Red Tour


COVINGTON — The Manitou Red Tour is stopping at all four Apple Farm Service locations over the next month.

The Red Tour event provides an opportunity to try the newest Manitou MLT multi-purpose telescopic loaders and attachments designed for the agriculture industry.

An open house and free lunch will be held in conjunction with the Manitou Red Tour at nearby Apple Farm Service locations every Tuesday for four weeks, including in Botkins, on Aug. 21; Covington, on Aug. 28; West College Corner, Indiana, on Sept. 4; and Mechanicsburg, on Sept. 11.

“We have been in business for over 60 years and have always worked to bring the latest innovations in equipment to our customers,” said Bill Apple, president of Apple Farm Service.

“Manitou telescopic handlers are a great solution for so many different farm applications, and we are excited to give our customers the opportunity to try out different models and attachments that can make their operation more efficient and profitable. Stop by one of our locations and see for yourself the difference.”

With over 30 years of experience in the agricultural telescopic handler market, Manitou is known for delivering maximum comfort, performance and cost efficiency.

The Red Tour showcases the versatility of the Manitou MLT Series telescopic loaders and attachments. These multi-taskers boost productivity in digging, lifting, hauling and loading applications on the farm. The Manitou MLT Series features machines that can lift up to 31 feet and attachments that are specific for farm handling tasks such as hay handling, manure scraping, animal feeding, sweeping and more.

“We are thrilled to bring the Manitou Red Tour to Apple Farm Service,” said Lou D’Alesio, agriculture business development manager for Manitou North America.

“The Red Tour provides an opportunity to demo a variety of telescopics and attachments, speak to Manitou representatives and schedule a remote demonstration.”

The Red Tour and open house event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at each of the four Apple Farm Service locations. The events are open to the public with free lunch from TIME.

The Manitou equipment will remain at each dealership for a week following the event, and customers will have the opportunity to sign up for an on-site demonstration at their own farm.
