RC Mowers recently welcomed a Midwest family of companies — Trenchers Plus of Burnsville, Minn.; L.F. George of Wisconsin; and Midwest Underground Supply of South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa — to its dealer network.

Trenchers Plus and its affiliates are now offering another option for slope brush mowing with remote control to customers. According to John Rabideaux, general manager of Trenchers Plus, the RC Mowers lineup complements the Rayco forestry brush mowing line, filling the gap of hard-to-reach areas and steep slopes.

"The industry has been waiting for a mower like this that will mow on slopes up to 50 degrees, without putting our customers in harm's way," said Rabideaux. "We know the RC Mower line will be the answer to this problem and also a great addition to our company."

RC Mowers introduced its first commercial product — a radio-controlled slope mower — in mid-2019. The company's lineup of wheeled and tracked slope-mowing machines mitigate risk and injury for controlling vegetation on steep terrain.

"RC Mowers is thrilled to welcome Trenchers Plus, L.F. George and Midwest Underground Supply to the RC Mowers family of dealers," said Jessica Korthals, sales operations manager of RC Mowers. "Our unique product line is a great fit for their existing customer base of municipalities and contractors. We look forward to many years of success and market innovation."

RC Mowers has partnered with Trenchers Plus, L.F. George and Midwest Underground Supply to provide sales and service training for its products. Instruction includes equipment operation, municipal sales techniques success models and product training.

Remote-Control Mowers

The machines are designed to handle inclines of up to 50 degrees, while the operator can be 300 feet away. This virtually eliminates the risk of injury, especially from roll overs.

That makes these machines ideal for clearing vegetation and maintaining dangerous slopes around dams, retention ponds, highway overpasses, landfills and more.
