remote control mowers guide

Remote controlled mowers can tackle the toughest jobs with clinical efficiency and at the same time keep operating personnel 100% safe.

We compare it to the ride on as well as  the push walk behind mowers

See how they compare, we take a look at the remote control mower and compare it to the ride-on as well as  the push  / walk behind mowers.

Stump Grinder attachment

Remote control mowers are high performers, and are perfect with any council road side, sloping landscapes for all industrial or commercial applications.


Roadside, railway or airport maintenance, stump grinding, forest and land clearing; when you face dangerous and challenging areas that need serious attention you need the toughest of the tough.

Green Climber will meet any challenge you can throw at it.

But our specialised large remote controlled mowers aren’t just unstoppable they’ll also seriously improve your levels of operator safety.

Every year more than 20,000 people are seriously injured by mowers and other vegetation clearing equipment.

The reality is ride-on mowers, slashers, stump grinders and trench diggers are highly dangerous. Add in unsafe terrain and the risks of injury or fatality skyrocket.

Our Green Climber remote controlled mowers can tackle the toughest jobs with clinical efficiency and at the same time keep operating personnel 100% safe.

The Green Climber machines are technically known as remote control mowers.

The operator walks alongside the machine at a safe distance controlling operations from up to 350 metres away.

A large LCD screen provides constant updates on performance and maintenance.

Ride on and push mowers struggle on steep slopes, both in maintaining traction and cut quality.

With its low centre of gravity and expandable track drive system, the Green climber can tackle slopes up to 60 degrees.

Operator safety is one of the most critical advantages the Green Climber holds over ride-on mowers or manually controlled machinery.

Vegetation control on steep slopes has traditionally been one of the highest risk jobs in Australia. Green Climber enables you to streamline your safe operating procedures, reduce insurance premiums and slash operating costs.

You can also add a range of attachments to the Green Climber that will maximise its versatility.

This enhanced potential will provide greater cost effectiveness and enable you to pay off the machine faster.

The Green Climber remote controlled mowers are quite simply a cut above all other types of manually operated vegetation control machinery.

You can see the advantages for yourself when you arrange a free, no-obligation demonstration at your site.

LV600 Max Gradient

remote mowing applications


Steep slopes have always been a real obstacle for manually controlled heavy machinery. The Green Climber can easily handle slopes of up to 60 degrees whilst working in any direction.

Its low centre of gravity and highly stable expandable track system makes the Green Climber the perfect tool for cutting thick bush and undergrowth on steep railway and roadside embankments.

The Green Climber mowers are able to chew through vegetation up to 200 mm thick faster than any other mowers so it’s ideal for controlling hard to reach noxious weeds such as lantana, blackberry, boxthorn, bamboo, and gorse.

The additional sprayer attachment makes the Green Climber the complete weed control machine for steep slopes.

In a highly efficient operation you can cut down large swathes of out of control weeds, mulch the woody stems and then spray the regrowth for more effective and cheaper weed control—all with the one machine.

This makes the Green Climber ideal for large-scale land clearance operations such as preparation for forestry planting.

Its rock-solid slope handling abilities also make it the perfect machine for mowing dam walls and mining rehabilitation projects.

And its ability to tow trees, safely move volumes of unstable material and dig trenches where human operators and other heavy machinery can’t go make the Green Climber highly versatile and unstoppable.

We do also offer ride on slope brushcutter/mowers for smaller homeowners and smaller jobs, see here:

Mowing on steep hill beside road


Green Climber machines are ideally suited for maintenance contractors and council roading teams.

Maintenance of high risk sites such as motorways, flyovers, steep bridge embankments and around inaccessible drains and culverts is simple and safe thanks to the Green Climber’s remote operation.

Operators can control the mower from a safe distance or from within their vehicles.

Passersby and observers are protected from flying debris.

And the expandable track system and lowest in class centre of gravity provides real stability on the steepest slopes.

industrial & commercial

Our large remote control mowers are at home with any industrial or commercial application.

Green climber machines are the tool of choice for all challenging situations from airport maintenance teams where the use of human operators is prohibited to rural fire service mitigation teams who need to quickly clear fire breaks or maintain fire trails.

You can deal easily with large lawns especially on steep hills with the finishing mower attachment.

The ability to deal effectively with weeds thanks to the insatiable cutting and mulching abilities and the spray attachment makes the Green Climber a powerful ally for any commercial contractor. And stump removal is a breeze.
