Robotic mower can handle large areas and removes snow


Left Hand Robotics introduced the new and improved version of its robotic mower that doubles in winter as a snow-removal device.

The 2020 model of the RT-1000 can be used to mow common and out-of-play areas helping free up labor for other tasks. 

Powered by a two-cylinder, 37hp Vanguard engine, the RT-1000 operates over a GPS-mapped route that is accurate within a centimeter, the company says. It is equipped with lights, cameras and lidar and radar sensors so others can see it and that allow it to come to a complete stop when someone or something blocks its path. When the path is clear, the unit automatically starts moving again. Two emergency stop buttons allow a human operator to manually halt the unit if necessary.

The unit has a width of 34 inches, and at 1,250 pounds, rides on four 20-inch-by-10-inch turf-friendly all terrain tires. 

With a 5-inch ground clearance, an attachable broom can remove snow up 3 inches in depth over large areas.
