Tyler Downs and Clay Engle place at a Diagnostic Systems challenge over the weekend
The Westfall FFA Chapter recently competed in the District 7 Agricultural and Industrial Diagnostics Systems (formerly Tractor Troubleshooting) Career Development Event held at AgriTrac, an implement dealership in Utica, Ohio.
The team of Tyler Downs and Clay Engle placed 5th..
The contest is designed to test members’ abilities in troubleshooting a tractor. Several makes and models of tractors were used in the contest along with a combine and a skid loader.
Each tractor is "bugged" with two problems - contestants have 20 minutes to diagnose the problem and attempt to repair or fix the problem and start the tractor. Teams also must take an online test on tractor maintenance and repair.
