School district stretches taxpayer dollars with diesel and multi-purpose equipment
Dec 09, 2010
MOUNDRIDGE, Kan. – Read how the Austin Independent School District in Austin, Texas, is getting the maximum value from their taxpayers' investments with Grasshopper MaxTorque™ diesel power units and QuikConverter™ implements.
“As opposed to purchasing several separate pieces of equipment, one Grasshopper has multiple uses all year. We don’t have equipment just sitting around waiting to be used. It just makes sense," says Mike Syzmarek, assistant athletic director.
