Remote Control Mowers & Problems Associated with Slopes
The popular zero-turn mowers today are typically able to take on 10-15 degree slopes without risking an accident. By using a remote control, the problems associated with maintaining steep hills are solved. A professional lawn care provider has to equip 6 or 8 of his men equipped with string trimmers when it comes time to maintain a slope that is too steep to drive his equipment on. This lowers his productivity by stopping the wheels from turning on his fleet of hi-end power equipment. This has always been a hindrance for landscape service experts as well as maintenance supervisors on the state DOT (Department of Transportation) and local county maintenance crews. With OSHA government officials raising the bar on safety regulations, particularly for the DOT guys, slopes over 30 degrees are being left unattended along portions of our nation's highways and other government owned properties. Parks and recreation facilities are among some other properties affected by these safety regulations. With all the reigns being tightened on safety standards, an R/C lawn mower is even more practical than ever before.
