Albany’s Eric Whitford is the proud new owner of a ride-on lawn mower.

Marshall Mowers and the Albany Advertiser teamed up to give away the Rover Mini Hydro ride-on lawnmower valued at $2599.

More than 600 locals entered the competition.

Mr Whitfords name was pulled out as the winner on Saturday, a great surprise for the 80 year old.

“It was a very nice surprise to win the mower,” he said.

“I had a much older one in the shed, so this one is a great replacement and will be very handy on my two-acre property in Lower King.”

Mr Whitford said he was looking forward to using his new mower.

“It’s in my shed at the moment, although I might wrap it up, it will be a great little Christmas present for me,” he said. “I’m looking forward to giving it a good run around.”
