ECHO Bear Cat and its distributor, Jerry Pate Turf and Irrigation, have awarded Barry Gladstone of Maylene, Ala., with a new ECHO Bear Cat SC2170 Chipper/Shredder. Gladstone was the winner of the giveaway at GIE+EXPO 2012 in Louisville, Ky.
Frank Owen, Jerry Pate regional sales manager, along with Lee Higginbotham of Advanced Mower West in Birmingham, Ala., presented Gladstone with the SC2170 Chipper/Shredder. Owen spent some time going over the features and benefits of the SC2170 and the correct safety and operation procedures with Gladstone to ensure proper use of the machine.
Gladstone was pleased to be the recipient of the SC2170 and is looking forward to putting the chipper/shredder to use with his landscape and lawn care business, Steven's Wack-n-Sack, in Maylene.
