To reduce maintenance costs and increase efficiency, Cedar Falls Public Works recently acquired an electric mower. The Mean Green 74" EVO contains a 35KW battery and produces eight hours of run time on the battery so that crews can mow all day on a single charge.
- No fluids, filters, belts, and minimal grease zerks
- 10-12 hour charge time for the battery
- 8,000 hours of battery life at 100 percent capacity (mowers are currently replaced at 4,000 to 5,000 hours)
- Greatly reduces noise levels
- Equivalent to neighborhood car traffic
