TODAY’S PATENT – ELECTRIC WALK BEHIND GREENS MOWER
The Concealed Pocket was invented by Gilbert Shoaf (Apex, NC), James W. Musser (Gary, NC) on the 27th of October, 2020, bearing patent number US10813284B2.
The present invention relates to grass mowing machines and specifically to electric walk behind greens mowers. An electric walk behind greens mower includes a traction drum supporting the mower, split into a left drum and a right drum. A first electric traction drive motor rotates the left drum and a second electric traction drive motor rotates the right drum. The electric walk behind greens mower also includes a pair of control levers on the handle, with each control lever controlling the rotational speed of the electric traction drive motor on the opposite side of the mower. The electric walk behind greens mower may have a clean-up pass feature in which an electronic controller controls the speed of the first electric traction drive motor and the second electric traction drive motor in response to signals the controller receives from a proximity sensor.
