Robotic lawn-mowing franchise supports popular robot-fighting TV series

Tony Hopp, CEO of Mowbot

We, here at Mowbot, want to encourage and support their creative vision as they push the boundaries in designing and building new robots.

When the 2019 BattleBots World Championship Tournament airs Friday, September 20, at 8:00 p.m. on the Discovery Channel, Durham-based Mowbot will be prominently featured as the show’s sponsor.

Mowbot – a national franchise aimed at disrupting the $99.5-billion-dollar lawn care industry with its robotic lawn-mowing service – has signed on to sponsor the “My Super Sweet 16” episode. Sixteen of the deadliest bots from around the world will battle it out in head-to-head combat in pursuit of the top prize in robot combat: The Giant Nut.

BattleBots, in its ninth season, features 69 bot-building teams from around the globe and their epic creations tricked out with deadly weapons and state-of-the-art onboard technology.

The building of next-generation robots is a natural fit for Durham-based Mowbot, and its Husqvarna manufactured robotic lawnmowers.

“The robot battle community, and the broader maker community, are a robust and hard-working group who align with Mowbot values. We, here at Mowbot, want to encourage and support their creative vision as they push the boundaries in designing and building new robots,” said Tony Hopp, CEO of Mowbot.

Mowbot will further its commitment by sponsoring a BattleBots team next season. Team Mowbot is coming soon!

The Mowbot-sponsored BattleBots episode airs Friday, September 20, 2019, at 8 p.m. on the Discovery Channel and Wednesday September 25, 2019, at 9 p.m. on the Science Channel!
