Having a farm to operate on a daily basis comes with a load of responsibilities. Mitch Zumbach and his father, Doran, know this – they own the Z Valley Grain farm near Coggon, Iowa, and they love what they do. With John Deere machinery on hand, they can continue their operations, regardless of what life throws their way.
“It’s always been difficult for me to run a skid steer or CTL,” says Mitch, who lost the use of his right arm in a childhood accident. “We had a competitor machine that we modified so I could use it, but that made it difficult for anyone else to run. My father often wondered if it might be possible with today’s technology to design a machine we could all use.”
