Left Hand Robotics has developed the first commercial-class, self-driving snow clearing robot capable of removing snow from sidewalks and walkways. The SnowBot Pro uses advanced GPS technology to follow a pre-determined path and an array of sensors to avoid obstacles during operation. Its rotating brush clears a sidewalk from edge-to-edge in a single pass to meet even the highest standards
Reduce Part-time Labor
Highest Quality Results
Dramatically Reduce Costs
Snow management companies can reduce the high cost of snow shovelers by up to 80%
The SnowBot Pro helps medium to large snow management companies with retail, commercial and industrial customers dramatically reduce labor costs, increase efficiency, and minimize the business risk of potentially costly Slip & Fall claims. See how SnowBot works
Reduce the cost of labor
Part-time labor is expensive & hard to mobilize when a snowstorm hits
A robot is ideally suited for repetitive & physically taxing shoveling
A single SnowBot Pro clears the same area in one hour as 14 shovelers.
Manage Risk Better
Reduce insurance & risk management costs
Reduce the number of laborers – leading to reduced work-related injuries
Get detailed SnowBot Pro reports with snow removal job data & photos.
Deliver Cleaner Walkways
Meet high service standards of 1-2″ snowfall thresholds & zero tolerance SLAs
SnowBot’s wide rotating brush clears snow better than shoveling
Salt and other deicers can be applied automatically both before a snow event and after the brush clears a walkway
The robot can reach places that other larger equipment cannot.
Get Dramatic Cost Savings
Reduce laborers required & clear snow faster
Eliminate up to 80% of shovelers required when a snowstorm hits
Works every minute of each hour, never takes breaks and multi-tasks to improve snow-clearing efficiency during snow events.
