The company says the M100-AV can operate without on-site supervision and includes LiDAR-enabled obstacle detection and avoidance for safety. FireFly’s newest mower also provides path planning, so no boundary wires are needed.

Powered by a LiFePO4 battery, the M100-AV can mow up to 25 acres per charge at 7 acres/hour speeds and recharge in two hours. The machine requires no gasoline and has no operating emissions.

Other notable features include:

  • Four independent electric drive motors synchronized with two independent steering motors.
  • Wide stance and balanced weight distribution.
  • A RoloRocker cutting unit.
  • SyncLift position-based lift technology.
  • Drive motors are engineered for a 100,000+ hour life and low maintenance.

The company is currently accepting pre-orders and anticipates delivering the first production models this fall.
