Graze Unveils New Design and Capabilities

The Technology

The Mower of the Future

Graze is building electric, autonomous lawn mowers specifically for the commercial landscaping industry to counter labor shortages and rising wages in the US.

Reducing Labor Costs Increases Margins

Direct labor costs ~45% of the total revenue generated from lawn mowing. Graze eliminates 50% or more of the labor costs and 75% of the fuel costs.

Proprietary Technology

Machine learning and computer vision will allow Graze to map job sites, plan and execute mowing paths, avoid obstacles (i.e. trees, people), and collect and apply data to further optimize for precision and efficiency.

100% Electric Powered

Customers will save significantly on fuel and maintenance costs, and will be able to operate effectively and quietly at night.

Over $4.5 million raised from more than 3000 investors
