Mean Green Mowers partners with The Kobi Company to develop an autonomous commercial electric mower.
Ross, Ohio, October 4, 2019 - Mean Green Products, LLC (Mean Green Mowers™), a leader in commercial electric mower manufacturing and The Kobi Company™ (Kobi®), a leader in robotic solutions, are collaborating to develop a safe and affordable, large area robotic mower. With the difficulty to find competent labor and the growing demand for more landscape services, the need for autonomous large area mowers is now more pressing than ever.
While previous large autonomous mowers have been developed, none have been able to meet the market expectations regarding accuracy, versatility, price and safety until now.
Mean Green and Kobi can now offer an autonomous commercial electric zero turn mower with a return on investment measured in months instead of years. A typical landscape crew of two workers can now be reduced to one and get the same (or more) work done in a day. The fuel and maintenance savings of the Mean Green electric mower and the labor cost savings of the Kobi autonomous system can add up to savings of $20-30/hr.
“We are proud to be working with The Kobi Company to convert our latest electric mowers to quiet, zero emission autonomous mowing machines” said Mean Green Mowers’ President Joe Conrad. “It’s a natural fit to combine our latest commercial electric mowers with high tech robotic automation”.
“We have designed our autonomous mowing module with mower speed, accuracy, and safety in mind. By using the latest in computer vision technology and artificial intelligence, we have been able to produce a system that can easily navigate any environment, even below trees and up close to buildings” exclaims Kobi CEO Andrew Ewen. “After years of writing code and exhaustive testing, we now have a safe and affordable autonomous solution for commercial landscape operations”.
The unveiling of this new mowing technology will take place at the Mean Green Mowers booth 11080 at the GIE+EXPO show in Louisville, KY on October 16-18, 2019. See the 74” EVO concept autonomous mower at the indoor booth. The 48” NXR autonomous demonstrations will be held at 10:00AM and 2:00PM October 17th & 18th at the Mean Green outdoor demo area #6014D. Exclusive testing with selected customers and certification pending the new ANSI/OPEI 60335-2-107-2019 Robotics standards in the fall, will continue through 2020 with plans of production units by 2021.

Classic beauty and charm can come with a hefty price tag, but quality pavers and walls don’t have to break the bank.
Woodbury, N.J., September 17, 2019 - Classic beauty and charm can come with a hefty price tag, but quality pavers and walls don’t have to break the bank.
How long a Hardscape lasts depends on proper installation and the quality of the products used. Attention to quality in manufacturing processes and materials make the difference. Beware the bargain basement, dollar-a-brick pavers that are made as cheaply as possible; they not only will look less attractive but may also be more susceptible to cracking and spalling.
Hardscaping professionals trust manufacturers whose processes utilize advancements from the latest technology. Strong knowledge of materials and processes enables these manufacturers to offer a quality product at a lower price point, much like how automobile manufacturers can offer high-tech cars at affordable prices. EP Henry, the oldest American family-owned and -operated manufacturer of unit concrete products, offers this value in its Imperial line. Manufactured to the same standards as the company’s high-end stone pavers and wall systems and available in popular shapes and colors, Imperial pavers and walls come with the great service and lifetime warranty EP Henry is known for.
The Imperial line includes Rittenhouse, Cobble Stone, Rustic Cobble Stone, 3 Piece Modular, and Bullnose pavers, each offering classic and stunning looks. The Rittenhouse Paver, a contemporary, larger paver, comes in 5 colors that can fit in any design situation. The Cobble Stone line has a smaller paver and it comes in 4 traditional colors and the 3 new shades of Charlevoix, Driftwood and Sandy Beach, making them perfect for any landscape. The Rustic Cobble Stone pavers have an aged look that is perfect for country settings and historic homes. 3 Piece Modular pavers look natural in a set or random pattern installation, evoking the mason stone installations of old. Bullnose pavers boast a rounded edge, a softer look appropriate for a more organic look. Bullnose pavers are perfect for pool coping and steps.
If walls are needed, Marquis Wall is a single-sided wall system that is a great choice for the budget-minded homeowner. Marquis Wall is a striking, cost-effective choice for a variety of single-sided applications, and the line also comes with new color options. For free-standing walls, Rustic Double Face Wall is the perfect solution.
Getting the beautiful, classic look of stone does not have to break the bank. Outstanding value is to be found in trusted products and experienced manufacturers that can deliver quality at an affordable price.
About EP Henry®
EP Henry® is the oldest American family-owned and -operated manufacturer of unit concrete products in North America.

Minneapolis, September 17, 2019 - As the leader in the outdoor living industry, The Outdoor GreatRoom Company is excited to debut their latest innovation: Crystal Fire® Plus technology. Crystal Fire® Plus burners will be available individually and outfit all Outdoor GreatRoom Company fire pit tables.
Crystal Fire® Plus burners are UL Listed to the ANSI Z21.97-2017/CSA 2.41-2017 standards. These updated standards ensure utmost safety and quality for residential homes and commercial use.
Crystal Fire® Plus burners include many construction and safety updates. The new burner design offers a taller, brighter, and fuller flame for a more natural, realistic appearance with a higher BTU capacity.
A new Variable Control Safety Valve (VCSV) provides a safety ignition and safety shutdown operations. If the flame is blown out, the burner will safely shut down. The valve features a fully adjustable flame height from low to high with a quiet, clean-burning operation.
The new drainage system eliminates water drainage through the burner neck for more reliable operation. Water drains away from the burner ports and to the perimeter of the burner surface.
Crystal Fire® Plus burners now feature Positive Connect for fast, easy installation. Only minimal gas connections and assembly are needed as most connections are made prior to shipping.
“The Outdoor GreatRoom Company experienced a long, rewarding process to ensure that the new enhancements are a game changer for customers,” Vice President of Sales Joey Shimek said. “Customers can trust that our team made the best burner that much better.”
The burners and burner inserts are constructed of durable #304 stainless steel with a limited lifetime warranty. Over 25 stocked Crystal Fire® Plus burners, burner inserts, and custom burner options are available.
The updated safety standards are mandatory for all products manufactured after Jan. 17, 2020. Crystal Fire® Plus technology will replace current Crystal Fire® burners as inventory depletes. Any Crystal Fire® burners manufactured before January 2020 will still be compliant and UL Listed.
Crystal Fire® Plus is patent pending. For more information on Crystal Fire® Plus, please visit: https://www.outdoorrooms.com/crystal-fire-plus.

Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has developed a solution for woodworkers who need high-powered dust collection but don't want to sacrifice shop floor space: the new Dust Right® 1250 CFM Wall-Mount Dust Collector.
Medina, MN., September 17, 2019 - Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has developed a solution for woodworkers who need high-powered dust collection but don't want to sacrifice shop floor space: the new Dust Right® 1250 CFM Wall-Mount Dust Collector.
The machine's 1-1/2 horsepower motor generates suction at a rate of 1,250 cubic feet per minute, enough to effectively clear chips and dust from multiple machines connected individually or in a plumbed-in run. And with the included Y-fitting, which mounts to the 6" inlet on the machine and splits into two 4" ports, users can connect one line to machines and another to a 4" flexible hose and Dust Right® accessories for shop cleanup.
"Typically, dust collectors on the more powerful end of the range have a sizable footprint," said Steve Krohmer, Rockler's vice president for product development. "With the Dust Right® 1250, you don't lose any floor space, and you get dust collection that's powerful enough to handle just about anything a home or garage shop can throw at it."
The Dust Right® 1250 also comes with a radio-frequency remote that works from up to 25 feet away, allowing users to turn the machine on and off from anywhere in their shop. The unit has keyhole mounting slots spaced 16" on center for mounting to wall studs, and mounting hardware is included.
A fabric bag that filters out particles as small as 30 microns in size comes standard with the Dust Right® 1250. The bag features a clear plastic window so users can see when it's getting full, and a bottom zipper allows for easy emptying.
For greater dust filtration, Rockler also has introduced a dedicated Canister Filter for the 1250 CFM Wall-Mount Dust Collector. Its pleated filter captures particles down to 1 micron in size, and the steel frame incorporates a handle-operated agitator that knocks accumulated dust off the pleats into a clear collection bag.
The Dust Right® 1250 CFM Wall-Mount Dust Collector (54352) is priced at $529.99, and the Canister Filter (54818) is $299.99. Both can be purchased exclusively at http://www.rockler.com or at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, as well as through the Rockler catalog.

Retire the gas can, the quart of oil and the funnel to fill both of these mowers, because they don’t rely on fossil fuels and don’t expel hydrocarbons into the atmosphere. They represent the future in lawn care.
Charlotte, N.C. (PRWEB) JULY 23, 2019 - WORX® has introduced two new Landroid™ robotic lawnmowers (M, WR140; L, WR150) that incorporate the latest electronics to enable these mobile machines to mow lawns up to a ¼ and ½ acre, respectively, unsupervised. These streamlined, compact mowers are programmable to cut lawns in any day/time combination for an entire season through the mower’s user interface, or remotely, using the Landroid’s smart phone app.
Retire the gas can, the quart of oil and the funnel to fill both of these mowers, because they don’t rely on fossil fuels and don’t expel hydrocarbons into the atmosphere. They represent the future in lawn care.
You don’t have to be home to mow the lawn. From a favorite coffee shop, golf course, ballpark or other remote location, communication with Landoids M and L is handled through a smart phone app. Both mowers are programmable so the operator can instruct the mower when, what time and frequency to cut the lawn.
“Our new WORX Landroids are outfitted with the latest technology to make these “smart mowers” a true asset to homeowners,” said Thales Marques, WORX Product Manager.” They work independently so homeowners can enjoy their leisure time doing other activities like golfing, going to the beach or pool, attending a baseball game or just relaxing on their deck or patio.”
One of the features of the Landroid app is the lawn size calculator. By walking the lawn’s perimeter with the smart phone app, it automatically calculates its size. Then, the app automatically configures a working schedule for the mower based on the size of the lawn. In the event of rain, Landroid’s rain sensor sends the mower back to the charging station. The user can program when mowing resumes, based on the duration of the rain. Updates to the Landlord’s app firmware can be applied automatically via WiFi.
The two new robotic mowers include Landroid L (WR150), which mows lawns up to ½ acre and Landroid M (WR140), with ¼ acre coverage. Common characteristics between the mowers include the WORX 20V MAX Lithium 4.0 Ah Max Lithium battery, which is part of the WORX Power Share platform and compatible with more than 25 other WORX lawn and garden and DIY tools. Also, both mowers include the “Find My Landroid” GPS module that locates the mower in the event it’s misplaced, lost or stolen. GPS enhances communication capabilities through a cellular phone.
Another new feature of the mowers is “cut to edge.” Landroid’s offset blade design minimizes the need for trimming. Also, with the mower’s patented AIA technology, Landroid algorithm or problem solving capabilities allow it to better navigate through narrow passageways compared to other robotic mowers.
With Plug-N-Play, Landroid has preprogrammed settings. Users do not have to customize the mower’s programming after installation, although it is recommended.
Cutting height adjustments include 1.5 to 3 in. for Landroid M and 1.5 to 4 in. for Landroid L. Landroid M weighs 21.12 lbs with battery, while Landroid L is 22.88 lbs. Maximum incline for both mowers is 20º.
Other key features include a side charging port and multi-zone programming, which allows users to set up separate lawn cutting zones, such as front and back yards, tiered locations and berms. Also, homeowners can set up a security pin number code to lock out Landroid’s operation. Only the correct pin number will enable the mower to start, which is effective in the event if the mower is stolen.
In addition, the mower automatically returns to the docking station to recharge its battery or when mowing has been completed. The WORX Landroid’s feature weather-resistant construction, but homeowners may want to consider adding the optional Landroid Garage. The Landroid Garage (WA0194, $129.99) is like a carport that provides an extra layer of overhead protection against the elements; whether it’s heavy rain, wind or extreme temperatures. Easy-to-assemble, the overhead structure is anchored over the Landroid’s charging base by a set of lawn screws (provided).
Built-in safety sensors stop the mower blades rotation when it’s lifted or tipped. The sensors also reverse Landroid when it makes contact with a person, pet or object. The mower’s three pivoting blades combine for 7 in. cutting width (9 in., Landroid L). An LCD screen display sets up programming and pin code setting.
The Landroid L and Landroid M accessories include one, 20V MAX Lithium battery, 20V 90-minute charging base, nine cutting blades, screws and boundary wire and staples. A hex key, two measurement gauges, and eight lawn screws are included for securing the charging station. The Landroid mowers are covered by the WORX three-year limited warranty.
Optional features include an Anti-collision System with an ultrasonic sensor (WA0860, $249.99) to avoid hard obstacles and collisions. Another optional feature is “Off Limits” (WA0863 $129.99), which simplifies the wiring process for complex lawns and landscapes.
The WORX Landroid M (WR140, $999.99) and WORX Landroid L (WR150, $1199.99) are available at worx.com.

BlueStar® Introduces ‘Winter Solstice’, the Latest Addition to the Award-Winning ‘Savor the Seasons’ Color Collection
Curated by Interior Designer Eric Cohler, ‘Winter Solstice’, the 2nd in a series of four distinct color palettes, was inspired by seasonal ingredients used by home chefs
Blandon, PA., December 11, 2018 - BlueStar®, manufacturer of handcrafted, high-performance kitchen appliances for the home – and a pioneer in customization and color innovation – announces Winter Solstice, the second in the new, award-winning Savor the Seasons color collection curated by internationally acclaimed interior designer Eric Cohler. Inspired by the flavors and colors of fresh ingredients and the natural world, this collection features four custom seasonal palettes, all designed to inspire home chefs to create a personal space that reflects their passion for cooking and entertaining.
The Savor the Seasons collection is being introduced by season, with Autumn Abundance announced this fall. Winter Solstice is a cool collection of comfort colors (Sage, Grape, Cocoa Bean and Ice) that bring the outdoors inside. Sage is a sweet green color like that of the culinary herb which has woody stems and grayish leaves. This subtle color looks great with wood tones, stainless steel and various types of stone. Grape combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red. Cocoa Bean, an earthy brown, is rich and luscious, and is simultaneously both classic and modern. Ice, a steely light blue, is nature’s color for water and sky. The color is wet and cold, and because it is so pale, it can function as more of neutral and blends easily with other finishes. Cohler recommends pairing this color collection with antique brass trim for a rich look.
