Our mowers are made from at least 85% recyclable materials such as steel and aluminum. At the end of their useful lives, the mowers are able to be recycled at scrap metal facilities. Recycling the mowers generates secondary (recycled) materials, which reduces the need for virgin (newly mined) materials and the associated environmental burden of such mining and virgin processing steps. As shown in the Summary of Results, the life cycle assessment of our mowers includes a ‘credit’ for the end of life recycling of the metal used in our mowers. This credit is equal to the amount of environmental impact saved by providing recycled metal to the market place instead of requiring new metal production to meet the market demand.
