Commercial Robot Mowers Unpacked
Domestic Robot Lawn mowers have been around for sometime now and are quite popular. A new breed of commercial grade robot lawn mowers is seeing the daylight. They are sturdier and cover more ground. Welcome to the world of commercial robot mowers!
Laying out the basics
BigMow and ParcMow robot lawn mowers are designed to cater large private property owners, golf practice range owners and other commercial facilities like office buildings. ParcMow and BigMow respectively cover up to 2.5 or 5 acres a unit without human intervention.
How do they work?
Robot mowers can either be manually activated or set on continuous mode for optimal performance. Once the mower gets tired, it will head back to its station for charging. The sonar equipped lawn mowers can sense obstacles and avoid collisions with their touch sensitive bumpers and movement sensors.
These commercial robot lawn mowers can handle slopes of up to 30% or 15 degrees.
Why would someone want a commercial robot mower?
- No emissions-more and more people are concerned about the environment and carbon footprint.
- Once the grass clippings are reduced to fine particles, they break down on the soil thus improving fertility.
- Because you are a very busy person, and your time is better spent on things other than mowing the lawn.
- Robot lawn mowers are sleek and flashy.
- Your business, whether it’s a golf facility or other, is concerned about return on investment and focuses on optimizing operations and employee fulfillment.
