Mean Green Mowers, Hamilton, Ohio, a manufacturer of commercial electric mowers, announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued it a new patent.

The patent protects the technology behind Mean Green Mowers’ electric zero-turn mowers and covers many different claims and combinations. According to the company, each claim, a defining limit of exactly what the patent does and does not cover, has unique features that provide the best control response, best quality of cut and the highest overall efficiency for an electric zero-turn mower. The mowers are designed with all-day run times, efficient control, drive and blade systems, as well as safety systems essential for commercial operations.

“Electrification of the outdoor power equipment industry is growing rapidly now that electric automobiles are gaining popularity. We are able to greatly expand this growth into the ride on mower segment with our e-mower patented technology,” says Joe Conrad, president and co-founder of Mean Green Mowers. “Internal combustion engine mowers use the oldest technologies, are very inefficient, cause horrible air pollution and are very noisy. Our goal was to develop an all-electric commercial mower that would run all day but emit zero emissions.”

He adds, “They also deliver low noise, low operating costs, low maintenance and cause less operator vibrations and fatigue. With this new patent technology, we are able to accomplish these goals.”

The e-mower industry is projected to hit $1 billion by 2025. The company says this new patent has advanced the company’s mission of bringing e-mowers to everyone.
