Owning my own landscape business means I need quality mowers that I can rely on, so winning one of the top mowers on the market is a blessing,” said Sparks. “It’s great to finally have a new mower after wanting one for a very long time. Not only do I have the equipment I need to start cutting more grass, I can do it in style!”

Hunt Brothers Pizza, in partnership with Exmark, launched the sweepstakes on February 16 to kick off the spring landscaping season. The sweepstakes ran through April 30 and generated entries from 47 states.
