“Take a seat. Take the challenge. Take it home.” That’s the motto for this year’s Drive Green Challenge. Participating in this event is a great way to take advantage of John Deere test drive opportunities, pick attachments, and get an overall feel for different JD machines.

If you don’t think that’s enough of an incentive, there’s also a $500 coupon available, which can be used when purchasing any of the John Deere 1-6 Series tractors. Those in attendance also have the chance to win a John Deere 1023E Sub-Compact utility tractor with a D120 loader and Frontier Grooming Mower.

This event runs from January to November of 2013; you can locate your nearest Deere dealer here. The following videos are testimonials of those who have taken the challenge and are eager to share their stories. Enjoy!
