Case Construction Equipment named Austin Kirby, owner of KirbAppeal Lawn & Landscape in Oxford, Ala., the grand prize winner of its inaugural Case Kickstart Contest.

“I’m amazed that I won, and I think it’s going to afford me some opportunities that I would not have had otherwise, especially with this equipment,” said Kirby. “I’ll be able to do jobs that I wasn’t able to do before—it gives me something to have in my pocket where I know I can go out and get the job done.”

Out of over 350 entries, Austin Kirby was selected as the grand prize winner. He will be taking home the following package:

  • A six-month lease on any one piece of Case Construction Equipment;
  • A yearlong consultation with landscape contracting industry expert Jeffrey Scott;
  • A $3,500 Case Parts & Service Reward Card to go towards the purchase of attachments, fluids, etc.;
  • Fleet management consultation and recommendations from Case staff throughout 2018;
  • Custom-branded CASE apparel/uniforms for staff; and
  • Up to five passes to GIE+EXPO 2018 Louisville, Ky.

Business owners entered the contest by answering basic questions about their operation and describing how they would evolve their services by winning the contest.

“This contest is about awarding the entrepreneurial spirit and providing the resources to allow a determined landscape business owner to reach his full potential,” said Michel Marchand, vice president, North America, CASE Construction Equipment. “Austin Kirby was chosen as our grand prize winner because he has the drive to do amazing work in his community and take his landscaping business to the next level.”

Additionally, the following runners-up will receive select consultative and apparel considerations from Case:

All entrants also received a retail offer for $250 off the purchase of $3,500 or more in Case OEM attachments (valid April 1 through July 31, 2018).
