Robotic Mower Led To Other High-Tech Products
In 2004 (Vol. 28, No. 4) FARM SHOW wrote about a small autonomous lawn mower invented by Luis Medina, a Florida electrical engineer with a passion for new ideas. Today he’s selling an updated version of the mower along with about 20 other products.
Medina is CEO of Evatech, a design and development company that has numerous high-tech patents for products made at two factories by 14 employees and sold in North and South America, Europe, Japan and China. He began marketing his mowers using YouTube videos.
Evatech is widely known for its low-profile, bright orange wheel or track-driven GOAT series. The GOAT 22 is a residential unit used for smaller sloped areas and flat properties. The GOAT 22T is a tracked unit for larger residential properties, steeper slopes and commercial businesses like golf courses, small parks, cemeteries and small farms. The GOAT 22T solar is designed to mow under solar panel arrays and has two trimmer arm attachments. It’s 18 1/2 in. tall, has a retractable deck elevation handle and two powerful 3-phase 48V brushless DC motor trimmer arms. The GOAT’s aggressive tracks make the machines ideal for all types of terrain, including slopes on ditches, water reservoirs and dams. The GOAT product line also includes a hybrid robot that can handle a front deck along with a commercial grade remote controlled mower.
“We design and build innovative products that people want for specific needs rather than for a mass market,” Medina says. A good example is the company’s SUMO ROBOT, which can be immersed under a foot of water and carry a 300-lb. payload. It was originally designed for the mining industry and has since been adapted for other uses.
The MAGA units are highly advanced robots that can mow grass, plow snow, sweep, pull wagons and other equipment. The TREX (terrestrial robotic explorer) is a patented clean propulsion 44-in. mower that Medina says is the most eco-friendly slope mower on the market.
Medina says his company has worked hard to be an innovative leader, building products that help customers solve problems, often with custom units. “We offer lifetime tech support to our customers.”
