How are Burros used in nurseries?

Replacing conveyor belts
  • Burros are used to move produce in nurseries, often replacing conveyor belts.
  • Burros generate rapid productivity growth because they require no setup or take-down time and can be operated without any infrastructure.
Towing transportation carts in nurseries
  • One equipped Burro can autonomously tow three to five transportation carts on flat gravel.
Towing tracking trailers
  • One Burro Grande can autonomously tow up to 5,000 lbs. on flat concrete or asphalt.
  • One equipped Burro can tow up to 1,000 lbs. on flat gravel or hard solid conditions.

Where it can work?

Indoors and outdoors

Burro Grande will be working outdoors starting Q1 2024 (in areas where GPS is available).  In late Q1, a software update pushed over the air will unlock towing indoors (in areas that are GPS denied).
