[ARCHIVED] Marsh Master Amphibious Mower Arrives

marsh master

The Public Works Department just received their newest piece of equipment called the Marsh Master Amphibious Mower. This special machine is designed specifically for traversing wetland terrain and will be used primarily to mow and maintain City detention ponds and major outfall ditch bottoms .

The mower was delivered to the Public Works Operation Center this week and was purchased to enhance the City’s detention pond and drainage outfall maintenance program.  It's already being put to use just in time for growing season. The mower allows crews to reach many more places that were difficult to access, and requires only one or two employees to drive it. The City currently outsources this specialized area of mowing and expects the addition of the Marsh Master mower to provide a savings of approximately $75,000 annually, in its first full year of operation.
