About the Scythe M.52 Robotic Mowers
At Clean Scapes, we continually strive to provide our clients with reliable, efficient and top-of-the-industry service. Clean Scapes is currently one of only a handful of commercial landscape companies in the country (the only one in the Austin area) utilizing the Scythe M.52, a piece of electric equipment that helps us run a more environmentally friendly operation. With manual and self-driving capabilities, Scythe’s M.52 is the industry’s most technologically advanced commercial mower, offering many benefits that property managers love:
- Quiet—Electric mowers are significantly quieter than their gas counterparts, reducing disruptions.
- Autonomous—For certain areas of the property, the mower can operate alongside our crew as they perform other detail-oriented tasks that make the property shine, such as trimming, weeding, and trash pickup.
- Emission-Free—As an electric unit with no exhaust or noxious fumes, you smell grass, not gas!
