Biglerville, PA (USA) – March 17, 2016 – Prowler operator, Aaron Guerrettaz, with Helena Chemical was recently celebrated as the North Central Division’s, Applicator of the Year on January 8, 2016. The award was presented to Guerrettaz during the company’s annual operator forum held at the St. Charles Convention Center in St. Charles, Missouri.
The Applicator of the Year Award is an impressive achievement in the ag industry. Helena Chemical’s selection process runs throughout the company’s eight divisions and 450 branches. Guerrettaz was nominated by branch manager Kevin Strater and was one of seven operators selected within the North Central Division. Strater praises Guerrettaz for the amount of ground he is able to cover with the Prowler. He states, “Aaron is the guy we can always count on to go out and cover the acres. He is always willing to do anything necessary to get the jobs finished, and he has made huge accomplishments operating the Prowler.”
Guerrettaz currently operates a 2015 E325 Prowler Combo unit and covers over 30,000 acres a year managing corn, soybeans, alfalfa, hay, and wheat fields. With the Prowler’s quick changeover ability, Guerrettaz is able to easily apply both dry and liquid fertilizer all season long.
In addition to the Prowler’s versatility, he values the machine’s comfort and dependability. He states, “The Prowler provides a smoother ride compared to other machines I’ve used. The all-wheel drive and overall comfort is what I like and can count on the most. With all the rugged grounds we cover, I can trust the Prowler to get the work done.”
Guerrettaz goes on to mention GVM dealer, Independent Ag Equipment as his go-to for service needs and highlights his relationship with Dustin Lake, Brad Clemons, and Eric Payne.
