Cincinnati Landscaper Wins Ferris Hydrocut 36

As a result of registering online for the 2005 International Lawn, Garden & Power Equipment Expo (EXPO), Dave Iles, owner of American Landscapes LLC in Cincinnati, Ohio, won Ferris’ new single hydro-drive walk-behind. His name was drawn from those who had registered via the EXPO Web site to be named “VIP Attendee of the Year.”

Iles also will receive a hotel suite during EXPO 2005, $500, dinner for two at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Louisville and the opportunity to meet the headliners for EXPO’s two concerts—Paul Revere & the Raiders, Oct. 14, and Charlie Daniels, Oct. 15.

Ferris Industries sponsored the EXPO promotion by donating the HydroCut 36 mower. Iles received the keys to his new mower from Klei Mower, a dealership that has been in business in Cincinnati for 45 years. Dennis Klei, owner of Klei Mower, said he has attended EXPO for 20 years and is looking forward to a return trip October 14-16 to see what’s new and innovative.

Dave Iles has attended EXPO for four years and plans to return this year to visit the 500 exhibits inside the show’s Kentucky Exposition Center, compare equipment in the 20-acre demonstration area and, of course, collect on his winnings.

“I really like the new product introductions at EXPO and the opportunity to demo equipment all three days of the show,” he said.
