Kubota Tractor

Dylan Earles was treated to ride alongs at Collie Equipment in Danville after Kubota assisted him with a tractor costume for his wheelchair. 

It was a special day Monday, Dec. 2 for six-year-old Dylan Earles of Axton who was treated to ride alongs and gear courtesy of Kubota at Collie Equipment in Danville. 

Dylan suffers from cerebral palsy and is nonverbal.  According to his mother, Jennifer Earles, doctors said he would never walk. 

On Monday, with assistance from his father, Dylan walked into Collie Equipment and managed to maneuver his feet around the deck of a Kubota riding mower to sit in the seat. 

In October, Earles wanted to be a tractor for Halloween. 

That’s when Pam Paquette, Thomas and Brandy Swinney, Kirk Cotter, and Matthew Huckfeldt teamed up to make Earles’ dream come true.
