In the quest to find their oldest running grain cart, Kinze Manufacturing launched a contest for their customers. The grain cart contest aims to find the company’s oldest grain cart that is still running. For those who enter, they will be in the drawing to win prizes that include meeting the company’s founder.
Kinze’s Oldest Grain Cart Contest runs from November 15 to December 31, 2021. Anyone with an operating Kinze grain cart who can provide the model number, serial number, and a picture of the cart may enter.
The owner who submits the oldest operating Kinze grain cart will win the grand prize. Along with 3 guests, the winner gets the opportunity to meet company founder Jon Kinzenbaw , who invented the industry’s first grain cart in 1971. The grand prize also includes a signed copy of his book, “Fifty Years of Disruptive Innovation,” a $250 Kinze Store gift card, and tours of the Kinze Innovation Center, Kinze factory and Kinzenbaw’s private tractor collection.
“We’re offering this contest to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Kinze grain cart,” said company president Susanne Kinzenbaw Veatch. “It’s also a way to show appreciation for our customers and demonstrate the durability and longevity of Kinze products.”
The contest, however, isn’t just open to the oldest grain cart. Ten randomly drawn entries, regardless of the grain cart model year, will receive a 1:32 scale grain cart signed by Jon Kinzenbaw and a $25 Kinze Store gift card.
