Nevada FFA receives several donations

Gene and Brian Colhoun donated a Case 1170 diesel tractor to the Nevada FFA on Tuesday, Nov. 24. Tyler McDonald of Van Wall Equipment brought the semi and lowboy to Colhoun’s and loaded the tractor with assistance from Brian Colhoun, Hunter Anderson and Kevin Cooper.

Another donations recently included a Sears Lawn & Garden tractor, with snowblower and tire chains, from Mike Nusbaum. The chapter sold the snowblower to a man from Gilbert for $300. The tractor will be a project for the ag mechanics class.

Lorna Sellberg donated a stack of Sears Craftsman tool boxes full of tools, along with a Stihl 039 chainsaw that runs really well. The chapter made repairs for Sellberg on a Husquarvana 16” chain saw. Cody Randall, Nevada High School senior, also donated a Stihl MS 210 chainsaw that is in good shape.

Dr. Paul Readhead donated two 11 x 16 SL steering tires, mounted on Massey rims. Colfax Tractor Parts purchased the tires and rims for $150 and also provided two, almost new, heavy-duty 12-volt batteries for the Case 1170 tractor.
