BIGMOW
Makes You GREEN!


No Gasoline, Diesel or Oil Used
BigMow is run completely on rechargeable batteries and automatically recharges itself.

No Emissions Given Off
Since there is not a requirement for lawn mowers to have catalytic converters, gasoline powered mowers give off high levels of pollutants into the environment. According to Energy Partners, an environmental consulting firm, gasoline powered mowers emit the same amount of pollution that a car does driving 1,300 miles.

Reduction of Chemicals
BIGMOW is mowing all day and night so the grass does not get high; it stays one length and only cuts about 1/8 of an inch each trim. The particles of grass decompose much faster than a two inch blade of grass does, essentially putting all the nutrients back into the soil. This also clips weeds before they are able to seed and therefore spread. Constant mowing will also reduce disease pressure since moisture won't sit on the grass long enough.

Constant mowing uses such little energy to produce such benefit. The reduction of chemicals going into the soil and potentially water streams is priceless but the cost savings on chemicals and labor to apply them is significant.

No Dumping of Grass Clippings
Since BIGMOW is only clipping the tips of the blade of grass, it not only produces a thicker, healthier, and greener lawn, but there is literally nothing to rake. Grass clippings then do not end up on the side of the road somewhere or filling up dumpsters with plastic bags or grass and finally taking them to the landfill. Grass does of course decompose quickly, but it is stuffed in plastic bag which does not decompose at the same rate.
