Garrettsville Residents Wins Customized Kubota Utility Vehicle in “Buckeye Kubota Dealers Kubota RTV500 Giveaway”

MIDDLEFIELD, Ohio, (January 25, 2017) – Garrettsville residents John and Heidi Van de Motter today received the keys to their new, Ohio State-customized Kubota RTV500. The Van de Motters were the lucky winners in the “Buckeye Kubota Dealers Kubota RTV500 Giveaway,” and took ownership of their new RTV during a special presentation today at Middlefield Farm & Garden (MFG), Northern Ohio’s largest Kubota dealership.

“The Kubota RTV500 couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Heidi Van de Motter, with her husband John, 30-year customers of Middlefield Farm and Garden. “Our two Kubota tractors maintain the riding trails, from Hiram to the Ohio Turnpike for the Grand River Hunt Club, as well as the daily upkeep for our 50-acre horse farm in Parkman, Ohio. We care for as many as fifteen retired thoroughbred racehorses that will be transitioned for new careers and placed with new owners. The new RTV will make our daily chores so much less demanding and give us the mobility needed to help run the farm.”

The Van de Motters were randomly selected as the winner from thousands entrants in the giveaway. Ohio residents were asked to visit their local Kubota dealerships to participate.

“I saw John and Heidi in our dealership and we encouraged them to enter the contest,” said Pierre Hodgins, president of Middlefield Farm and Garden. “I’m happy for their big win and proud to know that the RTV500 will go home with someone we know will really appreciate it.”

From hunting and hauling, to routine work around the jobsite, Kubota’s RTV500 is a versatile workhorse. The compact footprint of the gas-powered, 15.8-horsepower utility vehicle allows it to fit into the bed of a full-sized pickup truck. Available in four-wheel-drive and two-wheel-drive configurations, and your choice of Kubota Orange or Realtree® Camouflage, the RTV500 features an extensive list of optional accessories and implements.
