DASH

DASH has not just been developed as an eco friendly and green solution to mow lawns. The designer of the machine has addressed some biggest limitations of the traditional mowers with the DASH. The lack of space and system to dispose the scythed clippings is simply met with it. The machine comes with an internal mulching system that can store the clippings and scatter them in the lawn as fertilizer for the soil. The system helps you not go for another method to process the waste somewhere else.

DASH rocks a nice exterior design. You have a highly comfortable handle to move the mower in the lawn. The designer has certainly integrated sustainable ideas with perfection on the mower. Harvesting power from sun, DASH cleans your lawn. Indeed, you can have a lofty satisfaction of making no much harm to the nature with the machine. You neither use gasoline to operate the mower, nor do you pull the clippings in heaps to generate the lethal methane gas.

Along with the thin film solar panels, DASH carries a 24 volt polymer-ion rechargeable battery to store the power harvested. However, the mowing machine is less weighty and can be managed with less effort. Even you can operate the mowing machine in your lawn without the help of a worker.
