Are You up to the SKILSAW Challenge?
Press release date: June 10, 2014
Sweepstakes offers tradesmen chance to win 2014 RAM pick-up truck
MT. PROSPECT, Ill., – This year, SKILSAW launched a completely new line of lightweight SKILSAW Worm Drive saws. To showcase how light the saws are, SKILSAW is challenging users to hold a worm drive saw at arm's length for a chance to be entered to win a 2014 RAM pick-up truck.
From now until September 2014, SKILSAW will be sponsoring its "What Are YOU Made Of?" challenge at various industrial locations. The challenge calls for participants to hold a worm drive at arm's length for an allotted period of time. Participants can select from a variety of new saws to use for the challenge. They can select either the SKILSAW MAG77LT, the lightest worm drive saw on the market, or competitor worm drive saws. Those who meet the challenge will be entered into a sweepstakes to win a 2014 RAM pick-up truck. As an added bonus, all participants who qualify will receive a $5 Buffalo Wild Wings® gift card.
"The new line is significantly lighter, and users notice it as soon as they pick up the saws," said Craig Hanba, marketing manager, SKILSAW. "These events are a fun way to demonstrate how a lighter saw can improve your performance on the jobsite."
Consumers who visit one of the "What Are YOU Made Of?" events will also have the opportunity to get a free tune up* on their existing worm drive SKILSAW and receive great offers on select worm drive models.
At participating White Cap Construction stores, tradesmen can fill out a postcard entry form for the chance to win a 2014 RAM pick-up truck and a trip for two to Las Vegas to claim the prize at the 2015 World of Concrete Construction Show. Five first prize winners will each receive a SKILSAW MAG77LT.
