Tempe-based Solar Pool Technologies Inc. (SPT) announced the release of its newest solar-powered robotic pool cleaner, the Solar-Breeze NX2. The redesigned automatic pool cleaner offers pool owners improved performance and durability, along with state-of-the-art solar technology.

Swimming pools are the second-largest consumer of electricity in the sunbelt home after air conditioning. By using solar energy to operate, the Solar-Breeze NX2 can help reduce a sunbelt pool’s energy bill by up to two-thirds. Removing debris from the surface of the pool before it decays and sinks to the bottom results in less bacteria growth in the pool, meaning less sanitation and filtration is required. The robotic pool cleaner also has a chlorine dispenser that releases chlorine evenly across the pool. But most importantly, customers never have to hand-skim their pool again, and their pool is always swim-ready.

The new WORX® 40V Max, 17 in. lawnmower adds another top performer to the brand’s cordless mower line that’s lightweight, maneuverable, time and labor saving, user and eco-friendly, low maintenance and a highly efficient mulcher/ bagger. The compact push mower is powered by two, removable, 40V, 2.0 Ah, lithium-ion batteries and cuts up to 5,500 sq. ft. per charge, which is approximately the size of two regulation tennis courts.

Development of this newest WORX cordless mower parallels increasing consumer demand for more convenient and environmentally friendly lawn care solutions, as well as significant advances in battery technology over the past 15 years. It parlays the proven track record of its popular predecessor, the WORX 14 in., 24V mower, with a wider deck for fast cutting and higher voltage for added cutting power (torque).

The sophisticated, cordless mower has plenty of power to keep a small to medium-sized yard perfectly manicured. It features Intellicut™, the exclusive WORX torque-on-demand system that maintains constant cutting efficiency by electronically monitoring the need for torque. Sensors adjust to higher torque for thicker grass and reduce torque automatically when it’s no longer needed to handle everyday mowing conditions.
