An estimated 100,000-plus attendees turned out for this year's annual Sunbelt Ag Expo on Oct. 14 to 16 in Moultrie, Ga.

Known by many as “North America's Premier Farm Show,” this year's expo had more than 1,200 exhibitors showcasing thousands of agricultural products and services. Close to 150 exhibitors were new to the event. Over the years, the show has become one of the country's largest expositions of farm and farm related equipment. The 1,680 acre property provides plenty of wide open space for exhibit and hands-on demonstration areas.

This year, attendees saw SANY excavators for the first time, which were displayed in the McMillan Machinery Sales exhibit.

SDLG and its southeast dealers, ASC Construction Equipment and Flagler Construction Equipment, said they learned from last year's Sunbelt Ag Expo. The dealers brought an SDLG LG938L, 2.4 cu. yd. (2.2 cu m) wheel loader for display at last year's show. Based on customers' requests, this year, the dealers bought the new SDLG LG948L 3 cu. yd. (2.3 cu m) wheel loader to the show. As a result, the loader was the focal point of the exhibit and garnered a lot of attention.
