Hartwich, who works for Hartwich Brothers Construction in Wamego, will face off against the most talented compact equipment operators in North America in a series of skill-testing challenges using a New Holland Construction skid steer loader – a fast-moving and versatile machine found on almost every construction, landscaping and agriculture project.

New Holland Will HartwichFrom a field of more than 2,000 participants who competed in New Holland Construction Super Boom Road Show events across the United States and Canada this year, Hartwich and the other semi-finalists will be vying for the title of North American Skid Steer Champion and the grand prize of a new, fully loaded New Holland Construction 200 Series skid steer loader – valued at US$35,000 – for their sponsoring company, plus US$5,000 and New Holland Construction gear for the winner. Hartwich’s fans can follow his progress during the championship competition on Oct. 27 on Twitter at twitter.com/newhollandce.

The North American Skid Steer Championship event completes the year-long celebration of the launch of the New Holland Construction 200 Series skid steer loaders.

“The New Holland Construction North American Skid Steer Championship competition demonstrates the advantages of our new 200 Series skid steers. This includes outstanding control, easy attachment changes, precise maneuverability, superior visibility and best-in-class dump height and reach,” said Dave December New Holland Construction marketing manager.

Hartwich won the local Super Boom Road Show competition on April 16, 2011, at KanEquip, Inc., a New Holland Construction dealership located in Wamego, with the winning time of 00:53:39.

Hartwich has operated equipment like skid steer loaders for 20 years. The thing he likes most about his job is working outside, interacting with many different people and having a new job to do every day.
