Hard Hat Expo makes its return

The 34th edition of the Hard Hat Expo held March 23 & 24 at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse was successful for all involved. Two years of cancellations due to Covid restrictions did not deter exhibitors and attendees connecting at the venerable 34-years-running construction industry event. Exhibitors were very appreciative of the opportunity to speak face to face with prospects, customers and fellow exhibitors. Attendees were pleased to have the show return where they could have a real exchange with equipment professionals and see, climb in, and touch the equipment.

Major pieces were sold at the show including two McCloskey Trommel screeners from Tora Crushing & Screening and a new TYMCO Street Sweeper from J & J Equipment out of Brewerton, NY to name a few. Many other booths garnered a number of sales, service and networking leads from the eager attendees and fellow exhibitors.


On behalf of Auctions International Inc. $1087 was raised to donate through UNICEF for the children of Ukraine. In return for donations, Auctions International Inc. entered each supporter for a $50 gas card. The four winners: Bryan Moore, Will Conroy, Merritt Czerow and Kevin Balcom.




The rodeo saw a competitive group trying for their best times on Tracey’s New Holland & White’s Gehl machines.

The Skid Steer Rodeo was sponsored by:

Silver Level Sponsor-White’s Farm Supply & Auctions International

Trophy Sponsor-Admar Supply

Equipment Sponsor-Tracey Road Equipment & White’s Farm Supply

Exhibitors are planning to be back in Syracuse for the production of the next Hard Hat Show on March 22 & 23, 2023 and many will also be exhibiting at one of Lee Trade Shows agriculture productions, Empire Farms Days, being held Aug. 2 – 4 in Pompey NY.
