More than 35 people from more than 15 cities in Iowa joined us and Johnston North America for the Johnston Sweeper Service School, hosted on March 29 in Ankeny, Iowa at the Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities Training Facility.
This one-day training school began with a presentation from Johnston representative, Thomas Taylor, on the daily and weekly maintenance, discussing topics such as oil and water filter maintenance. Attendees enjoyed a catered lunch, followed by a walk-around demonstration of a VT651 Johnston Sweeper. During this time, troubleshooting issues were discussed, as well as proper maintenance and service procedures.
Attendees were able to get answers to their sweeper questions; connect with their industry peers; and talk to representatives from Johnston.
Survey results showed attendees were pleased with the service school and most believed they would be able to use the information given in the school in their daily work.
