New Bolton Center Mean Green Mower

grass field at NBC property

New Bolton Center (NBC) retired one of two John Deere 1600T wide area diesel mowers in favor of utilizing a “Mean Green” 60-inch electric zero turn mower. Operations currently require daily operation of the mowers for 7 hours per day and five days per week to maintain the property from April through October. In 2019, Operations utilized 890 gallons of diesel fuel during the peak season from April through October. Replacement of one unit for an electric mower reduced the overall CO2 emissions from the NBC's seasonal operations, as well as reduced diesel fuel consumption.
