At the helm of his new Exmark Lazer Z, Walt prepares to take back his weekends.

Since the launch of our Take Back Your Weekends video contest back in April, we have been amazed by the creativity and production talent seen in the submissions. One thing is clear; taking back your weekends is a concept quite a few of you have put significant thought into!

Congratulations to grand prize winner, Walt A. of Kentucky. Walt is taking home a new Exmark Lazer Z X-Series mower, and judging from his video submission, he knows just how he’ll use the extra time his Exmark will give him.
