Mean Green Products (Mean Green Mowers) has partnered with Kobi Company to create autonomous mowers.

The electric zero-turn robotic mower will make its debut at the Mean Green Mowers’ booth (# 11080) at GIE+EXPO show in Louisville, Ky. The 74-inch EVO concept autonomous mower will be display at Mean Green Mowers’ indoor booth. Demonstrations featuring the 48-inch NXR autonomous mower will be held at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Oct. 17-18 at the Mean Green outdoor demo area #6014D.

Mean Green and Kobi are offering an autonomous commercial electric zero-turn mower with a return on investment measured in months instead of years.  A typical landscape crew of two workers can now be reduced to one and get the same (or more) work done in a day.  The fuel and maintenance savings of the Mean Green electric mower and the labor cost savings of the Kobi autonomous system can add up to savings of $20-30/hr, the company reported.

Certification with the new ANSI/OPEI 60335-2-107-2019 robotics standards is pending. Mean Green Mowers says testing will continue through 2020 with plans of production of units by 2021.

“We have designed our autonomous mowing module with mower speed, accuracy and safety in mind. By using the latest in computer vision technology and artificial intelligence, we have been able to produce a system that can easily navigate any environment, even below trees and up close to buildings” Kobi CEO Andrew Ewen says.
