Frequently asked questions about the MowFleet system:
The starting cost for installing the system is a mere $1 per yard of boundary wire installed. If you have a 1/4 acre of green space to mow, needing 170 yards of boundary wire, you’re looking at an initial cost of $170. Very simple. Then, you rent robots and base units from us at a fixed price.
As a result of this, any significant up-front investments in robots or installations are avoided. Plus, the system will free up time for your staff to perform more profitable tasks.
Not one. These mowers are incredibly safe to operate. If there are any attempts to lift or move them, the disc with the rotating blades will stop immediately.
There are some very sad US statistics on conventional, gas powered mowers; the use of those lead to 85,000 injuries and 70 deaths anually.
Our system has been used for more than 150,000 hours without any incidents or theft attempts. The problem becomes non-existent when the mowers are used only during regular working hours. For additional security, each mower’s position can be tracked in real-time via GPS, should someone try to move them.
We often say that these mowers are quieter than a summer rain. Hence, there will be no disturbance of animals or humans when the mowers are at work. Furthermore, we have never experienced incidents where small birds or animals have been harmed. An independent Danish-British study shows, that the Husqvarna mowers used in our system are the least harmful to wildlife.
Compared with using a traditional ride-on mower, the difference is enormous. Using robots means that the long workdays spent on a mower, wearing ear protection, are gone. There will be no injuries from vibrations, no stress from noise, and no inhalation of harmful fumes and exhausts. The MowFleet system also contributes to a more stimulating and varied workday for the staff.
So, it’s safe to say that it affects the working environment of your staff, in a very positive way!
The MowFleet system meets all predictable regulations regarding hydrocarbons, CO₂ , and any other harmful emissions. It’s safe to say because the emission from a robotic mower is zero.
The only environmental impact worth considering is caused by transporting staff and robots to the green spaces. Luckily, many new environmentally friendly work-truck options are currently being launched.
A prohibition on selling garden equipment using fossil fuels will be coming into effect in California in 2024. In the 70s, the Golden State paved the way for catalytic converters in cars, adopting similar legislation. As we know, history repeats itself, which means that many areas in the US will likely soon follow. And then the rest of the world.
We are firmly convinced that no company or municipality can afford to not do its best, when it comes to limiting its environmental footprint.
