ECHO Robotics named 2019 Innovative Award Winner

Congratulations to ECHO Robotics, our 2019 “Innovative Award” winner for their Autonomous Mower TM-2000.

The self-driving, self-charging, self-sufficient unit mows up to five acres of turf efficiently and quietly while finely mulching clippings to promote turf health. Saving time and labor for facility managers, it can be remotely commanded while monitoring performance via a web platform and mobile app. According to independent studies, its energy costs are eight times lower than traditional mowers. Boasting a 2:1 mowing to recharging ratio, it can mow approximately 16 hours a day (rain or shine) and can be scheduled to operate around field usage and watering cycles.

The “Innovative Awards Program” recognizes STMA commercial company members who’ve developed a product, service, equipment or technology that substantially enhances the efficiency and effectiveness of the sports turf manager and / or makes the playing surfaces safer and / or more playable for athletes. Chosen by STMA’s Innovative Awards Task Group, entries are evaluated on a wide range of qualities including whether or not they fill a need; are creative; save time and resources; are cutting-edge; make a task easier or more productive; improve quality; protect the environment and improve efficiency.

ECHO Robotics will be showcasing at the 2019 STMA Exhibition at Booth #149. Learn more about the award and winner here.
