FORT COLLINS, Colo. — After 39 years (and 3 months), valued employee Jeff Lunt will be retiring from 4Rivers Equipment.

Beginning his career at Larimer Equipment of College Avenue, Lunt has seen many changes in the John Deere and agriculture industries. The growth in technology, service and equipment availability through the years has been astounding. However, being a part of the growth of 4Rivers Equipment has been very exciting.

Being ‘Your Working Partner’ has not only been the company’s motto, but something Lunt and his crew firmly believe in. It isn’t just a job. It is about working for our customers and friends. Lunt’s last official day as 4Rivers Equipment is May 31. Lunt is looking forward to spending most days outdoors, roaming on his 4-wheeler. Thank you, Lunt from all of us at 4Rivers Equipment and the Fort Collins community. 4Rivers Equipment has 15 John Deere dealerships, covering four states: Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and Wyoming.
