The town of China, Maine, will benefit from the addition of a new John Deere tractor with several attachments to its fleet of vehicles, as the machine will join a used tractor and several other cars to help clean up the area as the snow comes down, according to the Kennebec Journal.
The board of selectmen for the town voted unanimously to buy the new John Deere tractor with a new mowing deck attachment and a snow blower. This will help to clean the new sidewalks that were put up in South China Village, the news source reported.
Town officials also approved a purchase of a new trailer to get the tractor back and forth between the various sites where the vehicle will be used. The board of selectmen saw this investment as necessary for the safety of the townspeople, according to the Journal.
John Deere offers snow blower attachments for a variety of vehicles, as two-stage hydraulic versions of this product can throw snow up to 45 feet, according to the company's website.
