One lucky landscaper wins an L170 skid steer in the publication's 'Landscaper's Dream Package' contest

FARGO, N.D. - (February 25, 2008) - Jeffrey C. Moen, operator of Jeff's Landscaping Inc., has been awarded a New Holland Construction L170 skid steer, along with thousands of dollars in other landscaping equipment and supplies, as part of the "Landscaper's Dream Package" from Total Landscape Care magazine. Moen and his crew accepted the prize from Rajesh Joshi, senior director of sales at New Holland Construction, in subzero temperatures in Fargo, N.D.

"Winning this machine couldn't have come at a better time, as I wrap up my second full year of business and begin to plan for a third," said Moen.
