Ingrahams’ Equipment, Knox, ME
The Waldo County Office of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Ingrahams Equipment in Knox will be sponsoring a 5 week class for youth and adults to learn and practice safe tractor and farm equipment operation.
Class sessions will continue each succeeding Tuesday on April 16, 23, and 30 followed by a written exam and tractor driving course on May 7th. The participants will learn how to handle tractors and equipment safely, how to identify hazards, and how to minimize the chances of accidents.
