MTD Products has acquired Precise Path Robotics, the Indianapolis company known for bringing the world’s only commercially available autonomous greens mower to market. The RG3 is designed specifically for golf course putting greens and robotic technology allows it to travel in straight lines and along curved perimeters without the need of an operator.
MTD is the parent company of Cub Cadet, Troy-Bilt, Columbia, Yard Machines, Remington, Arnold and other brands. It also recently announced its acquisition of CORE Outdoor Power, which powers lawn care equipment with gasless technology.
Precise Path Robotics develops robotic outdoor equipment, with patented technologies that will enable the development of a wide range of robots for use in a variety of outdoor environments, including golf courses, sports fields and residential homes. Precise Path’s robust and modular system architecture integrates a variety of custom and off-the-shelf sensor technologies that are combined in a unique way that produces precise cutting patterns.
“MTD is committed to the professional market,” said Rob Moll, CEO, MTD Products Inc. “Robotic and gasless technologies have the power to transform the world of outdoor power equipment and we look forward to bringing the benefit of these new innovations to our consumer and trade customers.”
