Zero-turn mower contest winner to take possession at a critical time for his business.

Brett Hill of Brett’s Lawn Maintenance in Richmond, Virginia, was named the winner of Toro’s first-ever virtual contractor event giveaway, receiving a Toro Z Master 4000.

Hill says the win came at the perfect time, as he recently had to sell his stand-on mower when he ran into operational challenges due to COVID-19.

“Having this is truly a huge blessing, and my first impression when I learned that I won was that this is life-changing. I felt like I was on cloud nine. I was just speechless,” says Hill.

Believing he would soon need to downsize his business and focus on smaller customers’ lawns that he could maintain with a walk-behind, the Z Master 4000 Series will allow him to continue to serve his entire customer base. Brett’s Lawn Maintenance serves Richmond, and surrounding areas in Glen Allen, Chesterfield, Henrico, Chester, Ashland and Varina. He provides services in lawn and yard maintenance such as cleanup, hauling and fertilizer treatment.

“This giveaway caps a fantastic virtual contractor event,” said Jared Nuessen, product marketing manager at Toro. “We are thrilled it will be a gamechanger for Brett. We wish him the utmost success as he explores what’s possible with his new machine.”

Hill picked up his brand new zero-turn mower from his local Toro dealer, Knabe Outdoor Power Equipment, in Midlothian, Virginia. The 74055 HDX model mower is valued at $10,799.
