Kobelco Construction Machinery America last week announced the winner of the “Your Competitive Edge” sweepstakes. Doug Nilsen, owner of Nilsen Topsoil, Millstone Township, N.J., received a one-year lease on a new Kobelco 55SRx compact excavator valued at $26,000, two tickets to the U2 360 Degree Tour concert in Chicago on July 5, 2011, and $2,000 spending cash.
The “Your Competitive Edge” sweepstakes promotion celebrates the launch of 13 new Kobelco excavator models in 2011. Nilsen was selected from 2,642 sweepstakes entrants. The sweepstakes promotion was sponsored by Better Roads magazine, a trade publication that reports on the highway, road and bridge construction industry.
“I’m thrilled to have been named the winner,” Nilsen said. “I can’t wait to try out the Kobelco 55SRx excavator. The one-year lease will help out my business a lot.”
A family-owned and operated business, Nilsen Topsoil has specialized in topsoil screening and residential excavation work for 20 years.
Harter Equipment, a Kobelco dealership in Millstone Township, N.J., will provide the leased 55SRx compact excavator to Nilsen.
Kobelco Construction Machinery America specializes in the production of compact, mid-size and full-size excavators ranging from 1.8 to 89 tons. It is a joint venture between subsidiaries of CNH and Kobelco Construction Machinery.
