If you’ve currently got a robot cleaning your floors, you’ll like Kobi. It’s a modular, autonomous ’bot built to tackle mowing the lawn, mulching leaves & handling snow removal. It uses GPS to plot & remember its route while avoiding obstacles. When winter arrives, you can equip it with snow tires and drop it in the driveway where it will throw snow up to 40-feet.
Powered by a 36-volt Lithium-Ion battery, Stihl’s RMA 410 mower is clean and silent, utilizing a commercial-grade 900-watt electric motor that provides 50% more mowing power than the previous model. It features push-button start & will mow 3500 square feet of lawn before it needs a re-charge.
This is not your average wacker. Honda’s gas-powered 4-stroke VersAttach enables you to run a bunch of lawn care tools with just one motor. Using a twist-and-click attachments system called SureLoc, you can switch easily between your edger, line trimmer, blower, hedge trimmer, pruner and cultivator.
Sunny summer days are too precious for messing with a lame lawnmower. But John Deere has just released the S240 Sport, a fast, efficient residential ride-on mower powered by an 18.5 hp Kawasaki FS Series engine & a smooth K46 hydrostatic transmission.
Briggs & Stratton just revealed a breakthrough in snowblower technology with the release of the the innovative SnowShredder. Unlike your normal snowblower blade that blasts away light, fluffy snow but chokes when you hit the tough stuff, the SnowShredder is a serrated auger that quickly powers through tough ice and heavy-compacted snow. This technology will be available on Briggs & Stratton machines as well as Snapper and Simplicity snowblowers, too.
Unlike gas-powered tools, DeWalt’s new line of 40V outdoor power tools is quiet and smoke-free.

Available March 2015.

New tools, like a Log splitter, water pump, chipper/shredder and more are on the way. Available Spring 2015.
The TB2MB is Troy-Bilt’s most powerful gas leaf blower yet. Unlike the one the guy next door uses to blow the leaves around in circles week after week, this 27-cc model blasts an industry-leading 650 cfm, that will send leaves far beyond the property line & into your neighbor’s yard.
The Aerocat puts the average wheelbarrow to shame with its versatile 8-in-1 design. Its patented geometry makes a 300-pound load feel like 25 and it quickly converts from wheelbarrow to dolly, plant & rock mover, extended dolly, cylinder carrier or trailer tote.
The MPV 7100S. It mows the grass, works as a generator with its on-board 7100-watt generator, and when you remove the mower deck, it’ll take you out into the wilderness as an off-road vehicle capable of towing 550-lbs; you can even switch into electronic mode to creep silently through the forest.
