“We’re enjoying our Mean Green mower very much.  No worries about oil changes or not starting in cold weather. The mower is easy to maintain, has a comfortable seat, and above anything else it mows just as well as our previous gas- powered mower.  Thumbs up, hands down!  And if you ever need someone to try it out, you’re welcome to send them our way.”

The Mean Green mowers are powerful, reliable, and obviously great for the environment. The only routine maintenance to deal with is greasing the front wheels and sharpening blades and it’s such a pleasure to never have to deal with oil changes, broken belts, hydraulic leaks, air filters, etc., etc…

“I would recommend the Green Machine mowers to any housing association without hesitation.” In the spring of 2019, Ten Stones Village Association (TSVA) purchased a Mean Green CRX 52 commercial lawnmower to replace a 21 HP diesel Kubota mower. TSVA consists of 17 households and they mow about 4 acres of common land and 2 acres of individual lots.

Ten Stones Village Association

In the spring of 2019, Ten Stones Village Association (TSVA) purchased a Mean Green CRX 52 commercial lawnmower to replace a 21 HP diesel Kubota mower. TSVA consists of 17 households and they mow about 4 acres of common land and 2 acres of individual lots. Mowing duties are shared among multiple (6-8) non-professional operators each year and they operate the mower about 125 hours annually. The land being mowed was previously pasture and is more rough and uneven than typical “lawns.”

TSVA had multiple reasons for switching to an electric mower:

  • they were hoping for lower maintenance costs,
  • lower repair costs and less down-time,
  • lower costs for electricity compared to the diesel fuel,
  • a smaller carbon footprint, and
  • lower noise levels in our community of “clustered housing.”

TSVA’s experience has been excellent. Assuming 2.8 kWh of electricity used for every hour of mowing, the cost of the electricity used by this mower was about $56, compared to an average of about $375 previously spent on diesel fuel, which is a savings of just over $300 per year.

A lower carbon footprint

With about 20 pounds of CO2 being emitted per gallon of diesel fuel burned, and .26 pounds of CO2 emitted per kWh of electricity (in Vermont), the CO2 emissions associated TSVA’s electric mower was about 3% of the CO2 emissions associated with the diesel fuel burned (e.g. 90 pounds compared to 3,000 pounds of CO2).

Lower maintenance cost

Yearly maintenance costs have dropped from an average of $900 to under $100; the latter a result of run-flat tires. And because of the dramatically lower noise levels, TSVA also expanded the permitted hours of mowing to earlier in the morning and later in the evening, with no resident complaints.

With a run time of 2.5-plus hours (with one battery) and using a 220-volt service for the charger, TSVA can mow 5 to 6 hours in a single day. By cleaning the deck after each use and keeping the blades sharp, the cut quality of the CRX is on par with their previous diesel mower. “I would recommend the Green Machine mowers to any housing association without hesitation.”

Jay Thomas of Bear Mt Mowing

“Having spent 13 years in the golf business and almost 10 years in the Parks & Rec. industry, I was all too familiar with the noise, fumes, pollution, constant maintenance and repair of gas-powered mowers. After I discovered Mean Green Mowers, I decided an all-electric lawn care service would be a great business model, so I started Bear Mountain Mowing. The service was an instant success in my area with my customers absolutely loving having an alternative to the noisy, CO2 spewing machines used by traditional lawn services.

“The Mean Green equipment is such a pleasure to use as I don’t have to wear hearing protection, deal with gas cans, or breathe noxious fumes all day. I can simply put a podcast on my headphones, turn the key and get to work. My Mean Green mowers start every time! Not only do I enjoy using the equipment, but the two most common comments I get from customers are “I can’t believe how quiet you are” and “thank you for providing this service”. Customers also appreciate the fact that all of my equipment is charged through solar power.

“The Mean Green mowers are powerful, reliable, and great for the environment. As with any mechanical device, they’re not immune to issues, but the factory always goes above and beyond in terms of customer service. And when I have had the occasional issue, parts are sent overnight and are incredibly easy to replace resulting in minimal down-time. The only routine maintenance is greasing the front wheels and sharpening blades. And it’s such a pleasure to never have to deal with oil changes, broken belts, hydraulic leaks, air filters, etc., etc…

“Electric mowers are undoubtedly where the industry is heading and it’s just a matter of time before everyone is on board. I’m thankful to have been one of the early adapters to this way of doing business and I’ll be adding another mower to my fleet for 2020 as I continue to grow my company.”
