Yay! Winner of Chipper Shredder Revealed

This is the most exciting and fun part about a giveaway. We have a winner!

It's also the hardest part.  I SO wish each and every one of you who entered could have one of these magical machines delivered to your home.

To be absolutely fair each contestant's name was listed into an online random generator which made the choice of who the winner is.

The winner is:

,"Supporting my local mulch salesman is a good thing, but making my own would be so much better! And shredding maple leaves for compost and oak for mulch would be fabulous, too. Why should my hubby have all the power tools? Seriously, Meems, a chipper/shredder would be a huge blessing. i hope it goes to the reader who needs it most."

 A really BIG congratulations to you, Mary Ann. I know you are going to get much use from this new toy! I'm so happy for you.


Disclosure: My reviews and/or recommendations are always my own thoughts. I am being compensated for my partnership with Troy-Bilt as one of the Saturday6 team members. This post is in conjunction with that partnership. Troy-Bilt is providing a CS4325 Chipper Shredder to one winner of this contest.


  1. Yeah for Mary Ann!! It is exciting!

  2. Congratulations to Mary Ann! Her mulch salesman may not be so happy, but I'm sure Mary Ann will be with her new chipper/shredder.

  3. Congrats to Mary Ann. She'll be doing a happy dance.

  4. Lucky girl...have fun making mulch!

  5. Enjoy your new shredder Mary Ann!

  6. I AM doing the happy dance!! Thanks so much Meems, I can't wait for my new toy to arrive. The maple leaves will start falling soon, and it will be put right to work.

    And thanks to all of you readers for being such generous spirits. I wish we all could have won. Y'all could come visit and we'll have a mulching party.

    Mary Ann
