Small and Mid-Sized Tractors Plus Implements

Purdue Tractor  
This training is an introduction on the safe operation of tractors, PTO driven implements, three-point hitches, rotary mowers, tillage, and other various implements. The focus of this training is on safety features and concerns as well as engines and other systems.

Faculty, staff, and graduate students who have reason to operate equipment for research are not allowed to operate the equipment without proof of experience and/or training. This training should be taken before operating equipment, or as a refresher if needed if there has been a couple years since last operating. 

While there is no official certification, the staff of Martell Forest or Lugar Forestry Farm will provide training on a case by case scenerio. For more information, please contact Brian Beheler at 765.583.3507 or​​​​​​​
