WEST HATFIELD, Mass. – R.K. Miles Friday announced that Northampton, Mass., area contractor Kevin Netto is the Grand Prize winner of a brand new Makita 100-year anniversary edition Ski-Doo.

Netto's name was randomly selected on Feb. 8 from all eligible entries received during the Makita 100 Years of Innovation Sweepstakes promotion that ran from Nov. 1, 2015, through Jan. 30.


"We were very excited to learn that one of our regular customers from our West Hatfield store won," said Steve Aubin, the general manager of R.K. Miles' West Hatfield store. "We were very pleased with the buzz the snowmobile created while it was on display in our store -- it brought in a great deal of foot traffic and helped build awareness for the Makita brand and its history of creating quality, long-lasting tools."

In celebration of Makita's 100 years of Innovation, R.K. Miles invited customers to enter in person at any of its four locations for a chance to win One Grand Prize 2015 Makita 100-Year Anniversary Edition Ski-Doo MXZ Sport 600 Carb Snowmobile valued at $7,299. Entrants also were eligible to win one of four second-place prizes: the Makita 18V LXT XT275M Brushless 2 PC. Combo Kit (one per store location), valued at $399.99 each, and one of four $250 Makita gift certificates good toward any in-stock Makita tools and accessories (one per store location).


Second- and third-place prize winners were: Tristan Frieri and D. Scott Dupee from the Williamstown store, Wayne Sturtevant and Westley DeVries from the Middlebury, Vt., store, Scott Roth and Dave Omasta from the West Hatfield store, and Ron Prouty and Eric Perry from the Manchester, Vt., store. 


R.K. Miles is a third-generation family business founded in Manchester, Vt., in 1940. The company supplies lumber, building materials and home goods to communities in southern Vermont and Western Massachusetts. In 2005, R.K. Miles expanded its operations to Middlebury and Williamstown, and in 2008, the company acquired the former Rugg Building Supply, which has become their newest location on West Street in West Hatfield.
