RC Mowers remote controlled models that run on tracks make mowing slopes and embankments significantly safer are a growing trend with an increasing market share
The USA built RC Mowers range of remote controlled all-terrain, all-weather models are now available in Australia and New Zealand through Colbrook Industries.
These powerful remote-controlled mowers can handle steep inclines of up to 50-deg working in all weather conditions while the operator stands a safe distance of 90m (300ft) away.
RC Mowers run on tracks that can power through hard-to-reach places at the same time as minimizing the risk of injury to the user.
They are seen as the perfect solution for the maintenance of embankments, roadside vegetation, and for keeping turf in premium condition.
There are also remote-controlled solutions to handle wet and boggy swamp land, so they can be used for land clearing and landscaping in areas where operators often struggle to maintain.
