Congratulations to Joel Owen of Landsmen Forest, Lawn & Garden in Banner Elk, N.C. He is the winner of a Walker Mower Model T25i with a 48-in. collection deck.

Owen was selected at the GIE+EXPO show in late October in Louisville, Ky., from a pool of over 300 entrants who visited the Walker booth and used the Walker productivity calculator to see how much more productive they could be with the Walker Mower than competitive products.Owen picked up his mower at Rhinehart’s Saw & Lawn in Marion, N.C.

Owen says his visit to the GIE+EXPO show had a specific purpose, and he believes they found it with the Walker: "While we feel like we have always provided great service with a product to match, our primary goal at the GIE show was to find products that would enhance our final results even more. We have always been familiar with the Walker family of mowers but maybe thought we had to focus on walk behinds and other zero turns. The guys in the booth did a great job of not only helping differentiate between those that look like Walkers but the earning potential for our company towards productivity. Improved results and increased profit... Win/win!" 

Walker also offers a special thanks to Kohler Engines who donated the EFI engine for the mower that was given away.
