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.”
