GOING GREEN IN SMITHTOWN CSD

LAWN MOWERS thumbnail223330
NEW ELECTRIC MOWERS FOR SMITHTOWN CSD

The Smithtown Central School District is excited to bring in two new electric lawn mowers, the first school district to utilize all electric mowers of this size!

With low noise, no fumes and no emission, the impact mowing has on students during the school day will be curtailed, along with an improvement to the health of those using the equipment.

With impressive uptime these Zero-Turn mowers will keep the crews working without the need to recharge mid day under normal conditions. These mowers have a lower purchase price than the typical diesel zero-turn mower the District had purchased in the past and at current fuel rates these mowers have a return on investment of two years.  Beyond two years these mowers are estimated to return a year over year savings of $8,000 in fuel and maintenance. 

The Grounds Team is eager to start using the new equipment on a daily basis.  Facilities hopes that piloting these new electric zero-turn mowers will lead the District into an eco-friendly cost savings future.

Special thanks to Anthony Luciano and Rob Grosso for testing them out!
