Why would I want or need to invest in an Remote Control Lawn Mower?
RC Mowers products significantly increase safety, efficiency, and convenience while maintaining your embankments. In many cases, our mowers can ensure your company can adhere to OSHA standards when servicing steep embankments. This can help to reduce potential workers comp claims as a result of common accidents associated with operating non slope enabled equipment on steep embankments.
Our Remote Control mowers can climb embankments far more effectively compared to a conventional Zero Turn Mower due to there traction ability, low center of gravity and given the fact there is no on board operator. This will provide greater ability to service steeper slopes faster as well. Last, regardless if you looking to service steep embankments or less aggressive rolling hills, RC Mowers offers an assortment of Remote Control Mowers that offer the flexibility to mow from a fixed position, taking the operator off the mower during long extended use times. This is very convenient, especially in situations where having to sit on the mower is less than desirable
