John Deere to Help in Ohio River Cleanup

By the end of 2015, more than one million pounds of material will be removed from the Ohio River.

That goal will be accomplished by Chad Pregracke and Living Lands & Waters, with the help of their new John Deere 210G LC Excavator.

John Deere is a longtime supporter of Living Lands & Waters.

This year, the company’s Construction & Forestry Division partnered with Pierce Pacific Manufacturing and Erb Equipment Company to design an excavator to specifically meet Pregracke’s heavy-duty clean-up demands.

The machine was unveiled at the Inland Marine Expo in St. Louis on June 17.
