Four winners take home a new Exmark Radius S-Series zero-turn riding mower valued at $7,699
BEATRICE, NEB. (March 6, 2018) — Four lucky attendees of the 2018 National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, KY, walked away with new Exmark Radius S-Series zero-turn riding mowers worth nearly $7,700. The company gave away one mower on each day of the show, held February 14-17.
Exmark Senior Marketing Manager, John Cloutier, said the giveaway created significant buzz in the company’s booth at times during the show.
“Our new Radius zero-turn mowers have been a runaway success with our farm and acreage customers, so the opportunity to win one was a big draw for show attendees. We’re confident each of the four winners will be blown away by the unbeatable cut quality, operator comfort and productivity their new mowers deliver.”
Guthrie, KY, resident, Jeremy Stutzman had his name drawn on the first day of the show, while Michael Kissee of Nancy, KY, was the Thursday mower winner. Trista Hillis of Beechgrove, TN, won the mower given away Friday, while on Saturday, Charleston, IL, resident, Andrew Graumenz had his winning entry pulled.
Thursday winner, Michael Kissee, said he was speechless when he learned his entry had been chosen.
“I had looked at Exmark mowers at the Farm Machinery show last year, but decided to wait until my old mower broke down. I barely made it through last fall with that old mower, so this was the year I was set to get a new mower anyway. It couldn’t have come at a better time. I can’t wait to mow now!”
The Radius S-Series mowers are equipped with Exmark’s 60-inch UltraCut Series 3 side-discharge cutting deck. Fully fabricated and welded from 7- and 10-gauge high-strength steel, the UltraCut Series 3 cutting deck delivers Exmark’s signature quality of cut. The cutting deck includes a standard deck step, which provides a safe point of reference for the operator when mounting or dismounting the machine.
The Exmark 708cc V-twin commercial engine features cast-iron cylinder liners and a heavy-duty two-stage air filtration system for reliable performance in the most demanding mowing conditions. Exmark’s high-capacity hydro drive system delivers forward speeds of up to 9 mph.
Operator comfort enhancing technologies on the Radius S-Series machine include a suspended operator platform, which uses three independent coil-over dampers to isolate the cast aluminum operator platform from the mower chassis. Easy to adjust for operator weight or ride quality preferences, the suspended operator platform uses trailing links to minimize lateral movement, increasing stability. A 20-inch high back operator seat features plush foam padding and is supported by an Elastomeric Vibration Control (EVC) stretch fabric base.
