The S.A.M. (Solar-Assisted Mower) provides an optional solar electric canopy that can be added to the commercial electric Mean Green CXR-52"/60" zero-turn riding mowers. “Now everyone has the option of choosing a clean, economical, efficient mower that delivers us to the future of the commercial landscape industry,” says Joe Conrad, president of Mean Green Products.
According to the company, an electric mower with the solar canopy offers several advantages to a modern-day lawnmowing contractor:
- Increased productivity – operators are shielded from the sun
- Improved environmental image – solar panel (on sunny days) collects the sun's energy and converts it to additional power for the patent-pending Mean Green Green Lithium LEM battery packs that propel the CXR mower, reducing emissions and capturing the curiosity of clients and onlookers
- Saves money – you may qualify for the 30% Federal Solar Tax Credit from the value of the solar equipment and Green Lithium LEM batteries
