Owen Equipment is excited to announce RC Mower’s latest innovation: the all-new R-Series. These remote-controlled robotic mowers are purpose-built to improve safety, boost efficiency, and tap into out-of-reach revenue opportunities.

“Landscaping contractors, public works departments, park systems, and road departments can mow hazardous terrain safely as they improve working conditions and efficiency and capture previously out-of-reach revenue.” – Michael Brandy, chief executive officer for RC Mowers.
