With approximately half an acre of garden and lawns to maintain, Jack had previously relied on neighbours to help cut the grass and was considering what type of ride-on mower he could buy when he entered the John Deere competition in the spring.
"I've never won anything before, and now I've got one of the best mowers on the market," said Jack. "I'm going to enjoy many seasons of mowing with my new John Deere."
Jack will now be mowing his lawn in comfort. His John Deere X127 ride-on mower features cruise control as well as a hydrostatic transmission and side-by-side pedals which enable the operator to change direction without raising a foot. The car style dashboard also makes the mower very straightforward to operate.
The mower has been delivered by Shropshire based John Deere dealership Rea Valley Tractors. Dan Brown, RVT Gardening & Groundcare Territory Sales and Paul Roberts, RVT Workshop Manager at RVT Newport depot carried out a professional handover, showing Jack how to gain the optimum use out of the mower for his lawn. Paul also explained how the RVT service team is available to support the lawn mower for any maintenance and servicing requirements.
John Deere Territory Manager Marcus Morris added: "Mr Fairhead is clearly delighted at taking delivery of his new lawn tractor. We're very pleased that our competition has found such a worthy winner."
The competition involved visiting the John Deere website www.deere.co.uk and correctly answering questions about the X127 lawn tractor.
