Machinery Pete Launches Premier Online Discussion Platform: Pete۪s Machinery Talk

Machinery Pete, the most trusted name in farm equipment, announces the launch of Pete’s Machinery Talk. This online community is the new go-to destination for farmers, ranchers and equipment enthusiasts to talk about equipment, ask questions and share their farming experiences with one another.

The community-building platform is designed to share knowledge, ask questions and find answers. Already, hundreds of farmers have joined the community to talk equipment and share their farming experiences.
