DULUTH, Ga. (March 14, 2016) —  Josh Muresan, the son of the Terry and Tami Muresan, owners of the century-old family Maple Lawn Farms in Bristolville, Ohio, left for Jackson, Minnesota, on Feb. 18, 2016 on an all-expense paid trip courtesy of AGCO Corporation (NYSE:AGCO).  Muresan, 20, entered his name in a drawing at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois, this past September and was selected from entries submitted during the three-day show. He took his father, Terry, and older brother, David, on the three-day excursion. The highlight of the Muresan’s trip was an exclusive tour of AGCO’s Intivity Center in Jackson on Feb. 19 where they had the opportunity to watch the limited-edition Challenger® X-Edition being manufactured. Only 50 of the all-black track tractors will be made.

“My older brother David is a big fan of the new X-Edition,” said Muresan. “I entered the drawing hoping to win so I could take him on the trip. He thought I was kidding when I told him we won. The trip was so much fun. Touring Intivity Center and seeing how the X-Edition is made was really cool.”

The X-Edition limited-edition Challenger MT700E/MT800E Series track tractors feature a stunning midnight black paint scheme. In addition, the tractors feature a deluxe cab, premium Kicker® sound system, Delphi® radio with Bluetooth®, infotainment hookups, AgCommand® Standard Plus, Rigid Industries LED Lighting® package. It’s the tractor of the future.

Maple Lawn Farms grows and harvests corn, soybeans and wheat and operates AGCO equipment – a Challenger MT635B and a Gleaner R52. They are serviced and supported by their local dealer – Ohio Ag Equipment.  More information about the Challenger X-Edition is available at: http://www.challenger-ag.us/products/tractors/x-edition.html.
